Just when we thought the meme was dead, Eliot and Ilana Glazer present "Shit New Yorkers Say." Among the gems: "Where's the train?" "They're filming Law and Order." "You have to go to Brooklyn, it's the law." "I hate L.A."
"You get the fuck off the train," yells the naked blond man on the 6 train in the above Not Safe For Work video. "Shoot me, shoot me!" he screams at a police officer. That's after the Michael Richards-style racial slurs, all with his pants around his ankles. The pants come off eventually -- boxers, ... More >>

• Jenn Sterger, who allegedly received photos of Brett Favre's penis by text, would simply like him to be punished, and won't sue if the NFL will "implement a program" to prevent such unwanted advances as those she faced by cell phone.

After a 285-day stint, I am abdicating my post here at The Village Voice. I'm going to work for Esquire.com, so I may -- as one commenter noted -- continue my work as a "a twentysomething angel of death." Yet, while I was here, I learned some very important things, and had some very memorable mom ... More >>
Memories!We admit it's been kind of a love fest around these parts this week (and we'll surely get over it soon) but this post Village Voice Web Awards Tweet interchange between our Best Twitterer, Pat Kiernan, and Best Sex Blogger, Awesome Slut, made us all glowy all over again, so we just h ...

Everyone's favorite NY1er Pat Kiernan has provided yet another service for us, aside from his informative and somehow even catharsis-inducing reading of the papers. Maybe you've seen the video that's been circulating in which a handy Frenchman uncorks a bottle of wine using only his shoe, a w ... More >>
Here is a dog getting mad at a honking driver and showing him who's boss. And by boss, we mean B.O.S.S. We would like to do this to certain impatient New York City drivers, but we are not so ballsy as this dog. Nor are our canines so sharp. In fact, we are generally so wimpy as to insist on crossing ... More >>
New Yorkers are passionate about NY1. And now they can be even more passionate about NY1.

Watch and learn, ... More >>

A Gray's Papaya hot dog might win you some points.We wake up with him each morning, and rely on him to tell us what's happening in our city (both "In the Papers" and on PatsPapers.com).
