Friday’s Fantastic Finds: NYC

Well kids, we made it- the last work day of the week…. ah yeah, who only works five days a week I do not know.

At this point, if you are like me, you need a good laugh right about now. So grab a cup of coffee and check out the total randomness, oddity, wtf and genius snapshots of NYC.  Let’s begin:

At an office building in NYC I found this and no, I have no explanation:

Remember the “What’s Your Dream?” guy in Pretty Woman?  This is the NY version…

Truer words have never been spoken and let me tell you, I am reminded of this far to often..

The famous Bond No. 7 man is a staple in Soho-, but this car just makes me smile. In a concrete jungle, it is nice to always see Spring!

Another fashion statement that rings very true. This one comes to us from a random straphanger in the NYC subway.  It is a tad blurry so translation time: “Earth is the insane asylum for the universe”- anyone care to argue?

Speaking of underground humor- this subway ad is just genius.  If you haven’t checked out Nick Swarsdon, I suggest you tune into his Comedy Central show on Tuesday at 10:00pm.  Genius.

NYC is the fashion capital of the US and that is the only explanation I can find for the following- Paul Smith stripe wallpaper? Check.  Trendy light fixtures? Check. Leather club chairs? Check.  No, it isn’t a cool coffee house, its the classic golden arches in Soho- that is right, its a McDonald’s.. how much does the Big Mac cost to pay for this renovation in the Big Apple??!

Now, if you are among those women (or men) who are to shy to broach the topic of sexual pleasure, take a little trip to  Coco de Mer.  If you do blush easily, you don’t even have to go into the store (although if you do, there is some fantastic fine bone china with um, interesting, sayings printed on them…), you can get the message across with just the front window..

And finally, what is NYC without Duane Reade?  While in line yesterday, I focused on the magazines at the check out instead of indulging myself and buying those damn pretzel M&M’s that seem to love me. Check out this editorial gem. Now, I have no problem with the sure-to-work strategy on how to keep men happy in your bed (and no one else’s) but, really? Saraliously? The motives for men cheating are now based on race?  Oy. A man wrote this for sure..

That wraps up this week’s edition. Do you live in a city that also serves up some curious, odd, but hilarious fodder, we would love you guest edit a “Friday’s Fantastic Find” from your hometown!  Just post a message in the comments section of the post and we will contact you.
