If only there was some sort of drill they could have performed as practice.

This is a massive hit to the Fake Rorex industry.

+1 I laughed. I read it to my coworker, and HE laughed.

Chinatown? They'll just want to put out another fire in half an hour anyway.

I chuckled.

Upon further review, just +1. Around only has one "r."

Police now suspect the fire was started by a cigarette and have released footage of the moments leading up to the blaze:

My co-worker used to live in that building, so she's getting charred, scorched kick out of these replies.

Quick! Get me these guys on the phone!

I hope to god that that fire cooks down the entire neighborhood. Most disgusting part of Manhattan, by far.
 
2009-02-24 11:11:36 AM  
Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown.
 
2009-02-24 11:33:57 AM  
A man walks into a bar in Chinatown.

Patron: "Do you speak English?"

Bartender: "Yes, I do"

Patron: "Good. Give me a Stoly with a twist."

Bartender: "OK. Once upon a time, there were three bear..."

Now THAT is clever
 
2009-02-24 11:36:59 AM  
They're so lucky that building didn't collapse like big steel and concrete buildings on fire often do.
 
2009-02-24 11:37:05 AM  

This space intentionaly left blank: think of the poor hot chinese waitresses...


And they're probably good looking, too.

/Hey-o!
 
2009-02-24 11:38:58 AM  
it is indeed the most digusting part of manhattan. just the stench alone makes you want to vomit. then you see weird animals hanging in the butcher windows. ex DOGS ( im not farking around, ive seen it)
 
2009-02-24 11:45:00 AM  
"People were yelling and screaming from the fire escape."

Um.... FIRE ESCAPE? Did they not know they could use those things to get down to the ground?

I'm sorry one of the few neighborhoods left with any distinct flavor on Manhattan makes you queasy. Maybe they should just start evicting people and start putting in Starbucks on every corner. It may be a bit run down, but it's old New York, so what do you expect? Gentrification is slowly killing this place.

Sorry, I'm calling BS on the dog bit. Maybe you don't know the difference between a chicken or pig from a dog.

/I do.

Nice Herbie Popnecker macro, Hilarity_N_Sues!

/And funny headline, Subby. If I had a "+1" to give you, I would give it.
 
2009-02-24 12:43:07 PM  
Have no idea why people are finding this headline funny--

firefighters don't do fire drills

now if the headline was something along the lines of:

RESIDENTS of building in Chinatown running around in circles trying to FLEE fire

now that might be considered funny
 
2009-02-24 12:52:19 PM  
I didn't know that rats, cockroaches and crappy Chinese food were all that flammable. Learn something new every day, I suppose.
 
2009-02-24 01:16:08 PM  
How do these completely misspelled headlines make it to the front page? "Arround"?! How about "mongoloidd"?

Subby is a pirate. Don't make fun of his speech impediment.

I'm willing to bet it was lamb... Without skin on, they look just like dogs. Oh, and what CityExile said too.
