Trashy New York Marathon

I have to be honest- I'm getting really sick of getting 20 emails a day at my office asking me to participate in GREEN events. It seems like everyone is interested in making you turn off your computer, recycle, and go to weird beaches to clean up trash. Look- I'm as into the environment as the next guy. I try to recycle, I use public transportation, and I throw my trash in the garbage can rather than on the ground.


What the fuck is with the trash heap that was left on McGuinness Blvd. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (my home) after yesterday's New York City Marathon? Everyone is so obsessed with this event- a mother won! Katie Holmes actually ran in it! (without a bra apparently)
But I will tell you what no one seems to care about... the fact that there are literally THOUSANDS of Gatorade cups littering the streets of Greenpoint that were part of the marathon's route yesterday afternoon.

The asshole runners got their fluids and then tossed their garbage all over my neighborhood. Does anyone take notice? Only the poor assholes that have to live in the rubbish of the physically fit. Does anyone give a shit about making Greenpoint green after fancy Manhattan-ites destroyed it? Don't even bother answering that question.

More pictures of this ridiculous litter castle to come...
