The Sun Has Fi­nal­ly Set on the British Em­pire

Copy­girl: UK?
Chick: The Unit­ed King­dom.
Copy­girl: The Unit­ed King­dom? Where’s that? Hey, Joyce! Where’s the Unit­ed King­dom?
Chick: …Eng­land. In Eu­rope.
Copy­girl: But I don’t see it here. British Co­lum­bia, Que­bec, British
Isles, but no Unit­ed King­dom.

Hip­ster or Home­less?

Guy: Did you know that there are home­less peo­ple who live un­der­ground in the aban­doned sub­way sta­tions?
Girl: You mean like un­der­ground peo­ple? Wait, I’ve heard of them, they have a weird name!
Guy: Like “un­der­ground peo­ple”?
Girl: No, I saw it on Fe­lic­i­ty.

Over­heard by: pe­ter

Girl #1: Hey, I lived on the street with the street kids for like, six months. On the street. They were on drugs and stuff.
Girl #2: Why?
Girl #1: Be­cause it was fun…It was re­al­ly on­ly on week­ends, though.

Guy: I’m sick of these home­less hip­sters. It’s like, you’re fuck­ing
hip­sters!

A Lot Less Than Stu­pid­i­ty Should

Show­er­ing girl #1: So, I’m think­ing of get­ting a tat­too.
Show­er­ing girl #2: Oh re­al­ly? I have one on my an­kle!
Show­er­ing girl #1: What’s it of?
Show­er­ing girl #2: Well, it’s not so much a tat­too as, I guess, a birth­mark.
Show­er­ing girl #1: …Well, does that hurt?

–NYU Pal­la­di­um Gym, E. 14th Street

That’s More Like a Com­mune

Guy: At some point, the fuck­ing union of New York City deli work­ers must have met to de­cide break­fast would no longer be cheap.
Girl: You think they have a union or some­thing?
Guy: Yeah, it’s called Chi­na­town.
