*Everyday Chatter (Special Gold Shit Edition)

Now the yunnies want even their shit to be laced with gold. And they're willing to pay for it, thanks to this repulsive little offering from the delightful New Museum on the Bowery. Please tell me this is a joke. [Gothamist]

Cooper Hotel developer says "cities should not be museums." I guess they should be playgrounds for people who shit gold instead? [Observer via Curbed]

A grim round-up of 2007's vanished greats. What will take their places? People who shit gold. [Lost City]

"She's special, like me." The MyTwinn Doll provides the littlest yunnies with their very own clone, perfect training for a narcissistic adulthood. She has hair like me, freckles like me, she dresses like me...and she even shits gold like me! Now that would be special.

A. Fontana will be gone soon, but there are still a few good shoe repair shops left in town. At least in Brooklyn. (Sorry, I just couldn't work the shitting gold theme into this one.) [Bklynometry]

Last week I posted about the anonymous protest against the BBQ-turned-North-Fork bank. Since then, passersby have added their own notes to the taped-on signs, mostly polite stuff like "I agree" and "Me too." Now Alex in NYC reveals the protesters are skipping Scotch tape and going straight for good old Magic Marker. Doesn't that just make you want to shit gold? [Flaming P]

I nominate this for the Everyday Chatter of the year. Shit gold, indeed!

thanks barbara! it reminds me of something my grandmother would say if she didn't approve of, for instance, a girl you were dating (and thought could do no wrong): "what is her shit made of gold?"

How about shitting dolls that look like yourself? Now THAT would be cool.

Once upon a time a group right here in NYC invented the baseball bat ,or so I'm told , and it wasn't invented for baseballs ...that was a later evolutionary turn .

When I read the words of this little twerp Peck ,all I can see is baseball bats swingin' .....

As to the Gold , is a gold-laced fece any more subtle in the proverbial holiday punch-bowl?

And what about the used toilet -paper ? Should we hang it on the wall picture-like , revealing each individual's gold-flecked ,nuanced wipings as a work of art ?

I walked around different areas of NYC recently. First downtown, then midtown and finally uptown. New York is becoming what Bloomberg is famously quoted as saying "A luxury good." I know a good plan. The if you shit gold once you must shit silver three times rule. That would be great...

i must of missed this post. has anyone called the new musuem for followup? have the gold tablets sold? how many? do you think it was an art piece, & a joke? i do, satire for sure. remember andy warhol was joking when he did the soup can painting. he said you can buy campbells for 35 cents, i bet rich people would pay thousands for it. he was right. moving along to brillo. if we look @ the decadent rich for centuries, there have been some very bizarre status symbols. did the gold intestinal pills ever take off?
