A Bronx storefront is a perfect example of when keeping it real goes RIGHT — the owner is giving his customers some straight talk, in very explicit terms, over coronavirus protocol.
Check out this sign posted in the window of what appears to be a liquor store or bodega of some sort in the NYC borough, which tells its patrons exactly what’s expected of them as they come in and shop … without any room for misunderstanding, or coddling at all.
The sign reads, “COVID-19 IS SOME REAL S***! Cover your f***ing mouth! Shut the f*** up! Buy your s*** and leave immediately.” Oh, it gets better … the owner lets it rip!!!
They continue, “Absolutely NO titty or sock money! Stand back at least 6 feet, playa. Store capacity limited to 5 motherf***ers at once. You cough, you die. Drink responsibly.”
It’s interesting … the scientists and doctors aren’t getting through to a large number of Americans with rock-solid data, so this seems like a viable Plan B.
We gotta say, the dude (or dudette) who put this up deserves an award of some kind, because instead of tip-toeing around what NEEDS to be said, they just came right out and told it how it is. No pussy-footing or sugar-coating … just to-the-point, NYC instructions.
It’s funny too — this very much reminds of us of Michael Rapaport (a New York-native himself) coming out with an expletive-filled PSA telling youngsters and their parents to stop screwing around and stay indoors, while other celebs came out with PC/watered-down takes of their own. Those Big Apple dwellers sure do have a way with words, huh?
Anyway, here’s hoping the message finally gets through — maybe the powers that be can take a cue from this and start talking about the issue with the seriousness it deserves.
