Spreadin' the News

Stan Mack's Real Life Funnies used to grace the Village Voice with illustrated quotes from New Yorkers and the Guarantee: All Dialogue is Reported Verbatim.

The funnies are long-gone, but the density and intensity of New York life continues to produce a wealth of overheard brilliance, banality and laffs. If you have time to kill, visit Overheard New York. But be careful. It's sort of like the film in Infinite Jest.

Overheard in Minneapolis:

"The cheap caviar comes from sturgeon, the really good stuff comes from some kind of whale or sumpin'."

Saw The Machinist this weekend, thanks for the tip, I loved it. Now I know how skinny I was back in '73!
