new york, new york, it's a hell of a town...

My favourite quotes from http://overheardinnewyork.com:

WASP lady: Look, Dylan! We're in the subway! It's subterranean -- that means we're going to see those subterranean guys!
Five-year-old: Subterranean guys? Whaaat?!
WASP lady: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! [Puts scarf over eyes, like a mask.]
Five-year-old: Holy shit, my god! Fuck nooo!

Thug dad to toddler after bumping stroller down stairs: I call that there ride 'The Earthquake.' You like that? ... Well, see, you're too young to appreciate the magnitude of what just happened.

[Hippie on bicycle loses concentration and crashes into lamppost.]
Cop in nearby squad car, over loudspeaker: Hahaha! Should've been more careful, or what?!

Drunk, to queer: Fag!
Queer: ... Dad?

Hobo: Hello, ladies and gentlemen -- I am hungry. I do not do drugs or drink. I am just in need of some money for food, and--
Woman, sitting down: --Excuse me, your bag is leaking on us!
Hobo, removing burst 40: Oh, fuck!

It almost makes me wish I lived in New York....
