Overheard in New York, Cupcake Edition

Overheard by me, yesterday in the Canal Street Subway Station.

Hipster-esque 30-yr. old guy: I mean, I felt bad about it, but what was I supposed to do? I just didn't feel like eating a cupcake, you know?

Hipster-esque girl: mubles something I can't hear

Guy: I know you don't, that's why I can talk about it with you. But I swear, like 99%, 99.9% of the people in the bar were like, Oooh, Yummm [mimes eating a cupcake].

I swear, I was dying trying not to laugh.

And thanks to Jack from Preworn for bringing this disturbing story about feces and baked goods to my attention. Just reason #216 to stay the hell away from Texas.

First of all, I'd like to sat that, I've been a fan for a good while now....a good 3 months. But, your recent post makes me quite sad. You see, I'm from Texas. More specifically, I'm from Dallas, Texas. I would like to clarify some things. We have freaks and sicko’s yes, who doesn’t? But you must understand, we are good, eloquent, sophisticated, and educated people. (For the most part) That poop guy has been caught and will be jailed. Since we are in Texas, he might face the death penalty, but it’s not for sure yet. Now that I'm on the soap box, I'd also like to dispel some myths. No, I don't own a ranch or horses. I've ridden a horse, ONCE in my life. I don't have a cowboy hat or boots. I don't have big hair. I do say "ya'll" but for the most part, I don't have an accent. I am a republican, but I’m not to happy with Bush right now either. But, Texas is great, you're invited. We enjoy a good cupcake every now and then, (especially at our country fairs, j/k) so please, don't boycott Texas yet, you don't know what it's all about.

Cupcake, cupcake, cupcake...

You KNOW I'm a fan. But honey! I'm from Texas!

Of course I am an export (in CA now) but still... Don't give up on the whole state entirely. It's actually quite lovely.

Well, I guess you never know who is reading your blog. Far be it from me to alienate a fan, let alone two fans. But before I shamelessly pander here, let's just say that yes, I suppose that someone "sprinkling feces" on baked goods in a supermarket could happen anywhere. But Rick Perry, Tom DeLay and executing the mentally retarded are things that only happen in Texas. Govenor Bush is something stupid that happened in Texas and Florida. For more frighteningly stupid stories about Texans, often involving shotguns and alcohol, I point you to Molly Ivins, who is an awesome writer and herself a product of Texas, so therefore I guess Texas can't be all bad.

Don't forget that Austin is supposed to be a really nice and from what I hear, liberal town. Plus they have antelope in Texas, so it's gotta have its bright spots.
