There’s no shortage of irony in a town that wears allover Macaulay Culkin prints. But the latest instance of it might just take the ice cream pasties. Last evening (all the best parties transpire on a Monday), local resident Henry Jehoshaphat, a 29-year-old creative director at ABCXY&Z proved he is the current master of the art by walking around a party with an ax slung over his shoulder.
The purported reason? “I wanted to give the bros in this neighborhood a taste of what it’s like to be around someone who actually wears Axe deodorant. It makes people feel as uncomfortable as a man walking around with an ax near them,” explained Jehoshaphat.
Those in attendance at the soirée gave mixed reactions to the so-called “statement” Jehoshaphat was trying to make. “He could have severely injured someone (other than himself, I mean),” cried Reece Pansy, a 24-year-old who is getting ever closer to finishing her real estate training online (it’s been about a year now). Others thought the display was “brilliant,” at least according to Mauro Umore, a visiting New York Loft Hostel stayer who believes, “Axe eez ahn insoolt to cologne.” In any case, Jehoshaphat ended the night by drunkenly dropping the ax on his foot and dismembering his pinkie toe.
