We’ve sort of been wondering why it’s taken someone so long to do this in the first place, but now that it’s finally happened, we can’t believe it. Clearly, the obviousness of the switch from “El Fogon” to “El Fagon” is just begging to be noticed and altered accordingly, and yet we never would have thought that the polite demographic of the Morgan Avenue stop would do something like this now.
Gerry Ineffectual, the police officer assigned to investigate–and the man who generally deals with matters of vandalism in the neighborhood–is unclear as to whether this incident is hate crime motivated, or simply an instance of youthful tomfoolery. Either way, Bushwick’s gay population is taking the matter very seriously and plans to hold a neighborhood watch meeting that will convene at Tandem this Friday at 7:30 p.m., with a few rounds of cocktails before the straight patrolling begins. Because whoever did this is, let’s face it, a straight man.
