    Bloated dead rats are probably the cleanest things in the Gowanus.

    My mouth just hung open when I realized it. I wanted to point it out to my wife, but thought to spare her as I didn't want her to vomit in my lap.

    The best part, the part that actually made me realize what I was looking at, was one of them kinda rolled over and you could see the nasty tail sticking straight up.

    This was one of my biggest "why the FUCK do people live in this city?" moments.

    It's part of the tenderizing process for the steak frites at Les Halles

    The thing about this rat is that he was perfectly flattened as if he lay down and committed suicide by truck. The trail of entrails was perfectly placed.

    I should have scooped him up, dipped him in plastic and displayed him at the Gagosian gallery.

    I'm afraid his chances are fading. Doesn't have Bloomberg's kind of money, the special interests are lined up behind De Blasio, low name recognition...etc.

    I must be really out of it. I didn't know who Bill DeBlasio was until fairly recently. Lhota I have known for a long time.

    "fading" implies that they existed in the first place.

    You are the outlier.


    Maybe he should've stayed MTA commissioner. Nice salary. Though the MTA commish is more unpopular than Hitler.

    Edit: Lhota is an exception to that, he receives universal praise for the Sandy response.
