If you support such an important business venture, as we do, make sure to head down to City Hall tonight and voice your opinions, because local supervillain Doug Compton hopes to put a stop to it. Compton, who leases the nearby spaces currently occupied by Pita Pit, Encore, and Pyramid Pizza, says that these businesses "shouldn’t have to compete with a food cart that will operate cheaply on publicly owned property" (LJ-World). If we're not mistaken (and we aren't), there will be very little overlap between these businesses and the hours of the food cart, and even if there were, shouldn't drunken consumers have the option between a shitty Pita Pit snack or a shitty Pyramid slice and...whatever the Last Stop boys will be offering from their cart? We believe they should.
See you at City Hall.
Since we can't convince everyone to read Franzen's Freedom, no matter how hard we try, the least you can do is listen while we share some of our favorite passages with you. Yesterday we came across this important moment when rock star Richard Katz shocks himself by realizing that he's come to prefer sleeping with women his own age as opposed to nubile teenagers:
"Nowadays especially, the young chicks were hyperactive in their screwing, hurrying through every position known to the species, doing this that and the other, their kiddie snatches too unfragrant and closely shaved to even register as human body parts" (Franzen 349).
Readers, if the greatest literature is meant to illuminate one's own existence, we can honestly say that this passage made us feel a little better about never getting to bang our favorite Quinton's waitresses. Thank you, Franzen. But we'd still like to try out all those positions.
Our feminist readers: "Once again, we assert: Is reading this book really a necessary way for President Obama to spend his time? And also: why do today's young women insist on shaving their snatches?"
