Coffee and a Slice of Pound Cake

After hearing this, I'm convinced that we should declare Brooklyn to be Philadelphia's next borough.

Coffee and a Slice of Pound Cake


After hearing this, I'm convinced that we should declare Brooklyn to be Philadelphia's next borough.

The Kid From Brooklyn just wants a cup of coffee, and winds up at a Starbuck's.

Warning: So not safe for work.

But so liable to make you laugh so hard you lose fluids out your nose.

Yes, he misspells it "Ginny". Myspace keeps taking him down, its also on youtube.

Some more good stuff for you.

Ah, there's been some media attention to Philly's 'hotness' this year - how we're cool, cheap and close enough to New York to be the city's sixth borough. But after watching this, I'm loving Brooklyn. Maybe we should buy it.

Oh duh, I forgot about that, which is funny since Philadelphia Magazine used a quote of mine on an article to that fact, which said in essence "Philly becoming a part of NY?  no wonder everyone is leaving Philly"
