Earnest white girl: So, I’ve been think­ing about it, and here’s what I’m pic­tur­ing — dat ho is lyin’ flat on her stom­ach, and Su­per­man is on top of her, but he has to maybe keep his arms out in front of him like he’s in fly­in’ po­si­tion… And it seems like maybe it would be eas­i­er to Su­per­man a small per­son… I bet you could Su­per­man a big girl. Yeah, def­i­nite­ly.

–H&M, So­ho

–Greene St, So­ho

Over­heard by: Rich Mintz

Cos­tumed guy: Two things you nev­er do — you nev­er pull Su­per­man’s cape, and you nev­er kick Spi­der-Man in the nuts! [To friend dressed as Spi­der-Man] You are wear­ing a cup, right?
