A Children’s Treasury Of Your Wonkette’s War On New York City

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Following our successful foray into Philadelphia, your Wonkette #WARRED on the Drinking Liberally party held every Thursday at Rudy’s in New York City, by buying them beer and stealing their women. Commenters, lurkers, and your Editrix’s NYC macher aunt and uncle, after the jump!

Chicago, you are on deck. Expect us sometime in 2013.

Lizzie certainly does have that lovely Julie Andrews quality that I find very special.

New York has some great looking people!

Lascauxcaveman September 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Typical Wonketteers. Very normal (only more intelligent) looking.

Terry September 14, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Her Auntie and Uncle are nice looking folks, too.

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Somewhat OT, but if there is anyone reading with political clout or connection, I bet I know what Editrix would lurve as an unbirthday present: An invitation from her pretend boyfriend, Joe Biden, to drop by.

Just a suggestion, Mr. Vice-President (and we know you are here).

chicken_thief September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

No I'm not. But if I was, what would be the bfd?

Sent via Blahberry from a subway on the way to DE.

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Well, if you WERE the Vice President, a simple invitation, perhaps with a personal note, asking Ms. Schoenkopf to drop by the Naval Observatory for a drink with you and Dr. Biden, would certainly not be inappropriate.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:41 pm

My friend used to work for him and knows Beau Biden, I will ask.

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 4:14 pm

If you pull that off, I bet you $10,000 there will be a can of hobo beans in it for you!

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 1:48 pm

New York has some great looking people!

And I was there, too!

emmelemm September 14, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Which one are you? The stinkin' youth?

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Yes, you were and you were delightful, care to out yourself?

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I'll bet I could guess!

As for you, my friend, it's wonderful when one's intelligence, wit, warmth and empathy is reflected on the outside, as well.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Oh how lovely, Chet Kincaid, I try to spread a little laughter on my way though life.

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I am kinda liking making people do the detective work, not that it's all that difficult, as I am an avowed youngster, and also "Multienthnic New York City Libtard" ==> that one brown guy.

Barbara_ September 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I spotted you immediately and emailed Lizzie and told her you are mantastic.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Incitefully_Joe, oooooooh, THAT Joe, the Joe of many seasons, many reasons. As long as it isn't Six-Pack. Now I get you.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Wow. The worst possible picture you could have posted of me, you did?

Geminisunmars September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

So, you are the pig?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Judging from the photo, yea.

I feel so violated. I'm like Kate Middleton, only I kept my clothes on and posed for the camera. But just like her.

Oblios_Cap September 14, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Did you take the glasses off for your close-up? Vanity!

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Those were reading glasses, dammit!

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Should of captured the moment you were wearing a book on top of your head. Finishing school, right?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I thought Lizzie did.

BTW, I got about a chapter in, and I'm enjoying it so far.

no_gravity September 14, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Hell my picture at the Tampa drinkup makes it unclear if I'm a 10 year old boy or a middle aged woman so count yourself lucky.

By the way, which one is you?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I deny that I was even there.

sullivanst September 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

You want n_g to Stand Down?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Oh no, I'm just practicing for the inevitable law suits to follow from the meet-up

Baconzgood September 14, 2012 at 1:00 pm

But you're filled with inner beauty.

102415 September 14, 2012 at 1:25 pm

He is actually.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I vehemently deny that I am anything but the meanest nastiest SOB on the planet.

I have an image to keep up, after all.

glasspusher September 14, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Don't feel bad. The "beat up hooker" look will never go out of style.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 14, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Eh…it could be worse, you could have been caught with a sweater vest or or anything made by Brooks Brothers…

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Full of something, alright…

Terry September 14, 2012 at 1:07 pm

Is that you rappin'?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

My nickname is DJ Whigger

UnholyMoses September 14, 2012 at 1:21 pm

So which one are you, anyway?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:15 pm

See the pig in the top photo? I'm the one that most resembles him. Or her. I won't be sexist.

fuflans September 14, 2012 at 1:42 pm

all of the people i see are charming, witty and thoroughly do-able.

wolvenwood13 September 15, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Even the pig?? Geez, I guess the GOP is right,gay marriage has been a gateway drug to bestiality. Of course, we liberals have always known about it, at least according to Rick "Frothy" Santorum. Or someone like him, they're all so crazy right wing, it's hard for me to tell them apart. Hell, I can't even tell Ricky Santorum apart from the pig, especially when he talks about women.

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Come on, who doesn't love a good b-boy stance?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Its not the stance I object to, it's the Michelle Malkin bigmouth bass face.

iamrrm September 14, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Well NOW you've given yourself away.

no_gravity September 14, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Manhattan drinkup, how very Algonquin Round Table sophisticated.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

All except the fatass in the yellow T shirt looking like he has a palsy. Who is that jerkoff?

no_gravity September 14, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Are his pubes cornrowed?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:30 pm

He probably shaves.

thefrontpage September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

This was a great time! Thanks to David Letterman, Regis Philbin, Robert DeNiro, Harvey Keitel, Yoko Ono, Matt Damon, Lauren Bacall, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Jack Abramson and Karl Rove for showing up, too! What a diverse, strange crowd! After the bar, everyone went back to DeNiro's place and watched "The Godfather–Part II" for three hours, with pizza from Papa John's and wine from Francic Ford Coppala's private winery. The gourmet chocolates were from Godiva. Thanks to everyone for a great time!

Geminisunmars September 14, 2012 at 12:28 pm

It was great! I went home with Yoko.

Isyaignert September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Oh no!

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 1:25 pm

That wasn't Yoko, it was Yaphet Kotto, who is a better singer.

Geminisunmars September 14, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Ummmm. I had me some damn good Kotto then. And I do mean salami.

RedneckMuslin September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

I call shenanigans!

These people look too nice to be from New York.

Goonemeritus September 14, 2012 at 12:50 pm

BLOW ME, New Yorkers are known for their Buddhist like positive outlook and their love of their fellow man. And anyone that says any different is asking for a curb stomping.

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 1:49 pm

It's true! That's why we have that uniquely New Yorker catchphrase, "Go become one with yerself".

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I'll cut a bitch says different.

anniegetyerfun September 14, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Death to those who say New York is violent!

cromiller September 14, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Some of us were from New Jersey.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 14, 2012 at 7:22 pm

I haven't been to NYC proper but I've been to Delaware and Atlantic City. That place is fuckin' depressing…

fartknocker September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Which one is Lizzie? Also, love the blue skirt Miss Editorix.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Orange jacket, like tenth picture down

fartknocker September 14, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Thanks Actor. She's a beautiful woman.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:32 pm

She's even more gorgeous in person. Sorta cross between Judi Dench and Goldie Hawn.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Oh thanks, now I feel mean about posting that crazy picture of you!

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 12:29 pm

That's exactly how I've imagined her looking for all these years.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Glad I didn't disappoint.

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Lizzie! You look as I imagined, but in real life!

Terry September 14, 2012 at 1:09 pm

The orange sweater? A lovely person to match a sharp mind.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I'd do her.

Oh, you mean she's really nice? Oh. Well, yes. She is.

FlownOver September 14, 2012 at 3:21 pm

'Scuse me… BRB.

Negropolis September 14, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Wow! She's…beautiful! You've been way too hard on yourself, Lizzie.

Limeylizzie September 15, 2012 at 7:42 am

It's more fun that way! How hideous to be one of those people who think they are soooo fantastic.

Barbara_ September 14, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Look at the photo of the two beautiful women with short hair. I am not sure who the lovely on the left is but Lizzie is the one on the right.

fartknocker September 14, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Wow, now I am truly smitten with the Women of Wonkette. I think a tastefully prepared calendar with photos and some of your best statements would warm the hearts of liberals and moderates.

Barbara_ September 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Lizzie, Rebecca and I are going to SKYPE tonight.
Got SKYPE? : )

Jus_Wonderin September 14, 2012 at 12:39 pm

My dermatologist says I do. Is there a cure?

fartknocker September 14, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I do have Skype but tonight I going to take my favorite woman out for dinner and some music. A lot of hand-holding and quickly contrived smart ass remarks will be exchanged.

iamrrm September 14, 2012 at 12:58 pm

& tits

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:18 pm

It occured to me I could open a dairy last night.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Rebecca and I have about 80 inches of bosom between us.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 14, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Hubba. Hubba. That is all there is to say.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Barbara_ I reminded them to Skype you. They looked pretty beat. I'm in that pic with my crush – short bangs, but my hair (that goes down to my rear) is in a high pony-tail.

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 1:23 pm

There's a lot of nice teeth in that photo.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:27 pm

You are adorable, with the best back-story of any Wonketteer ever!

Barbara_ September 14, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Thanks North, you are wonderful! Loved seeing the pictures of you.

emmelemm September 14, 2012 at 1:03 pm

That photo of Lizzie, plus imagining her speaking in a British accent, is a MAJOR SWOON.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Let's be 'having you, you dirty little cunt!

emmelemm September 14, 2012 at 1:37 pm

{fanning myself}

Guppy September 14, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Isn't the etiquette for these things that people should only out themselves?

Blueb4sinrise September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Stay teh course!!

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Trrrrix! Mrrrrraaaooowwww!

freakishlywrong September 14, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Fun, fun, fun! I KNEW that was Limey!

Monsieur_Grumpe September 14, 2012 at 12:22 pm

OK who 's who.

SexySmurf September 14, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Is that Salman Rushdie standing next to the pig?

DerrickWildcat September 14, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Jeeze, would you just look at those Liberals.

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 1:28 pm

white liberals, even. WTF?

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Not all of 'em!

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 12:27 pm

The only thing lacking were poles (not polls) and the fact that I never invested in Carmen Electra's Aerobic striptease or Pole fitness® to live it up in Manhattan with godless liberals.

BlueStateLibel September 14, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Now I am in a good mood.

freakishlywrong September 14, 2012 at 12:29 pm

You mean these aren't photos of the Values Voters Summit?

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 14, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Wouldn't a meetup from that Summit take place in a gay bar? Or does it only seem like every religious conservative dude is gay?

Chichikovovich September 14, 2012 at 12:30 pm

I don't see anyone holding an extra-large fast-food soda cup. Cowards.

Geminisunmars September 14, 2012 at 12:34 pm

But I saw cigarettes! unlit though.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 12:30 pm

By the way Limeylizzie, I gay married you last night. You don't drink but I did take advantage of your jet-lag.

By god Editrix, you DO look like your aunt. Except you smile.

BelleSC September 15, 2012 at 9:25 am

By god Editrix, you DO look like your aunt. Except you smile.

Even though it is a photo I could see the family resemblance as well.

FakaktaSouth September 14, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Oh my GAWD, so fucking New Yawk. (i'm such a hick I don't even know if that is right)
And I can't believe I say cunt and fuck in front of such a distinguished lot as this. Very nice!

sullivanst September 14, 2012 at 12:36 pm

And I can't believe I say cunt and fuck in front of such a distinguished lot as this.

Fuhgeddaboudit.

prommie September 14, 2012 at 1:04 pm

You know my favorite thing about NY is you hear people call each other "brother" there more than anywhere I have been. Like, white guys, I mean. Is it a union thing?

James Michael Curley September 14, 2012 at 7:06 pm

It's more, "Hey Bro!" these days and it's getting tedious. I don't want to be 'bro' to some dude in a cage in the subway when the turnstile ate my MetroCard with half a months time left on it.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 14, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Yeah, that doesn't sound good no matter who says it…and I can pronounce it the correct way using Surfer-guy venacular, "thankks brooooooo"…and it's still stupid. "haaarrrshhhh buddd!" never gets old…

Willardbot9000_V2.5 September 14, 2012 at 7:26 pm

They're just trying to rip off the West Coast…classless NYers. We come up with stupid shit like "dude!" and "bra!" and "mancave!" and they totally rip it off. But yeah, it's still pretty common out here to hear someone blabber "thanks, bro" or "brudda"…though I have to admit I don't hear many Spicoli accents anymore…

prommie September 17, 2012 at 9:58 am

No, its a full on "brother" and the only thing I have heard that sounds like it is when reall union people talk about their "brotherhood."

prommie September 14, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Don't worry, hell, they won't even serve you in Zabars unless you say both 'cunt" and "fuck" while ordering. You're gonna love it there. I can't wait to show you around.

FakaktaSouth September 14, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I can't believe you missed this one, what with all the fancy. I absolutely can NOT wait. Too cool.

prommie September 14, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Your friend from New Jersey was not about to go without you.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:41 pm

That's OK, that word was used a lot last night. 'Is is Noo Yawk, affa all.

ttommyunger September 16, 2012 at 10:49 am

You do indeed say those words, but not nearly often enough to suit this Southerner.

Shypixel September 14, 2012 at 12:31 pm

…still waiting for the announcement of the Montana Drink Thingy.

c'mon, we can have guns!

Lascauxcaveman September 14, 2012 at 12:58 pm

That would be fun. Wonkette drinky at the Elkhorn Roadhouse about a 15 minute drive (22 miles) west of Butte, then line up all the empties on the rail fence out back of the parking lot and use them for target practice until you sober up (more or less) for the drive home.

102415 September 14, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I'd fly out for that!

Boojum September 14, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I have guns!

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 6:26 pm

I'll keep the empties coming!

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 12:32 pm

So, what are your aunt and uncle's boardnames?

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Her aunt kept asking me what I wrote about. . .a little chagrined, I think I reverted to Alaska's less understood dialect – word salad.

Jus_Wonderin September 14, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Awesome.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

BTW, folks, notice is wasn't a sausage fest?

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 14, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Cause you lost yours.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Didn't you get any of the free hot dogs?

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:29 pm

You, Biel-ze-bubba are one handsome man.

HistoriCat September 14, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Of course he is! Some may even say devilishly handsome.

Wait – I don't see any horns in those pictures.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I was off-duty.

johnnyzhivago September 14, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I would have come but my New Jersey passport is expired….

Be sure to delete the photos and incinerate the hard drive if Romney is elected…

Baconzgood September 14, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Love the outfit Rebecca.

weejee September 14, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Looks like good timez NYC, good timez.

the_deliverator September 14, 2012 at 12:35 pm

CHICAGO! are longtime lurkers allowed to de-lurk and attend?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:38 pm

It's encouraged. You're looking at about four or five in the photos above, in fact.

the_deliverator September 14, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Excellent. I anxiously await 2013 and the promises of drinky-ness.

no_gravity September 14, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I was pretty much a lurker before the Tampa drink thingy and went and had a great time. Also, most of the other people there were lurkers.

elviouslyqueer September 14, 2012 at 12:37 pm

When is the Nashville meet-up? I ask, because I know full good and well y'all won't come to Memphis (although you should because, hello, barbeque, blues, blahs, and yrs truly).

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I'd go there for you and the three b's.

elviouslyqueer September 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Awwwwwwwwwww! *air kiss*

Jus_Wonderin September 14, 2012 at 12:51 pm

*snatches air kiss. puts it in a mason jar with holes in the lid.*

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Heh. He said "snatch."

Terry September 14, 2012 at 1:11 pm

I think everyone from the southern and eastern states is in Memphis airport at least once.

Baconzgood September 14, 2012 at 1:16 pm

What about Graceland? How could you forget Graceland.

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I have reason to believe we all would be received there.

commiegirl99 September 15, 2012 at 7:34 pm

Poor boy or a pilgrim?

102415 September 14, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I'd drive down for that one.

wolvenwood13 September 15, 2012 at 3:37 pm

And it's closer by half to me; I live up in the NE corner in Dog Snot, TN. Elviously Queer, I had no idea you lived this close to me. I love your name! Who knew?
See, there really ARE signs of intelligent life in Tennessee, the no-evolution state. Although I have wondered if we are the only 2 Wonkette readers in TN, which wouldn't surprise me.

gullywompr September 14, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Trix and company, congrats on a successful East Coast tour. You gotta be dead tired. Thanks for treating the readers and commenters of Wonkette as people too my friend.

And next year, go bigger – rally on the National Mall!

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Third week in January, maybe? (Fingers crossed…)

finallyhappy September 14, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I still have my volunteer hat from the first inaugural(Obama's – not Washington!) – so Come on Down!(or Up- or OVer)

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:41 pm

We'd outdraw Colb-wart!

iamrrm September 14, 2012 at 12:43 pm

These drinky things have gotten out of control when you have to bring your attorney with you.

prommie September 14, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Yeah but when the going gets weird, the weird bring their Samoan Attorney.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Drinking Liberally claimed they won the Warblog War by assimilating us, but we ravished their men and turned back their women, so Wonket wins!

Pragmatist2 September 14, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Good God! Thee people are almost as old as me! So much for my young and trendy image. Did you had out coupons for Depends?

102415 September 14, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Shut up!

owhatever September 14, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Well, Trixie, you know what I always say.

Baconzgood September 14, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Must be nice to go about the country and get hammered with your Wonkette fans.

Jus_Wonderin September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

"Nice work if you can get it. And you can get it…if you try…………."

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Kind of like being Romney, but with booze and without all the assholes in the crowd.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 14, 2012 at 12:48 pm

It's official. All the lady commenters I have a crush on are way out of my league!

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 5:39 pm

We'll be the judge of that, get yer kit off darling!

wolvenwood13 September 15, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Awww, and we thought chivalry was dead – NOT!

prommie September 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm

I am one of the oldsters around here, but damn, I do fucking look way younger than this pack of codgers.

taylormattd September 14, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I didn't want to be a total cunt, but I have to concur.

102415 September 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Photo shopped.Don't believe it.

ttommyunger September 16, 2012 at 10:51 am

Kids!

OneYieldRegular September 14, 2012 at 12:50 pm

You all look fabulous. Obama's second term cabinet, right there.

Baconzgood September 14, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I find this easy to masterbate to.

Geez, I was stuck out on an island off the tip finger of Michigan – so much for my stalking ability, Lizzie – hope the world straightened up for you guys for a moment….

BTWBFDIMHO September 14, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Chicago 2013??!! By then President Romney will have put the Editrix in a libtard concentration camp and outsourced Wonkette to the Planet Kolob.

Isyaignert September 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

You can smoke in NYC bars? In Seattle you can't smoke within 20 feet of a building, which puts most of the smokers out in the middle of the street.

BaldarTFlagass September 14, 2012 at 1:21 pm

I think those might be "electronic" cigarettes.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:37 pm

The bar had an outdoor section which is where we were.

Isyaignert September 14, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Thanks for the explanation Lizzie – you look like a lot of fun on a date!

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:58 pm

More fun than you could stand.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Strictly speaking, smoking was illegal in the outdoor area where it was going on. There's some rule that it can only constitute 25% or less of the outdoor serving area, yadayadayada, but yes, you can smoke outside in bars here.

if you're lucky.

chicken_thief September 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

What with the delightful Wonkers NYC photog gallery, the smirking Sir Mittens of Hairgel felt left out.

Drink a LOT. (Ever see a fat wino?)

banana_bread September 14, 2012 at 10:33 pm

SPEAKING OF CHICAGO. Unofficial Woknet debate viewing party at my house! No, seriously!

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 1:22 pm

'Twas a good evening indeed. Our Editrix is not only lovely, but charming, and Lizzie has a megawatt smile that lights up the room (and a 2-megawatt camera … I'm still seeing spots!) Actor112 is exactly as pictured in his avatar, btw.
Walking back afterwards, came across an unmarked building with numerous large black cars parked out front (one of them a Maybach), and an assortment of men (crewcut blonde, dreadlocked black, vaguely middle-eastern brown, etc.) standing out front. They had one thing in common: they were large. And alert.
On the Broadway #1, I am joined at 42nd St. by a 6-foot tall presposterously gorgeous blonde. (Ralph Lauren would give his left nut to have her model his stuff.) Her companion: two inches taller, swept-back black hair, mandatory 3-day beard, and (like her) cheekbones from another planet. It is, after all, Fashion Week. They get off at West 110th St., and the entire population of the car is like, "WTF?"
Then, on the street in my nabe, an airplane wing left out for the morning trash collection. I kid you not. It is aluminum, and tomorrow is recycling day, so it's all good.
Just another Thursday night in New York. Tonight is Friday, when it gets interesting.

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I'm glad you got to fire the Kalishnikov.

finallyhappy September 14, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Did the wing just fall out of the sky??? That is amazing? Around here, we just have old sofas and the occasional toilet

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Uh-oh … maybe we should have left the Kalashnikov alone?

Nothingisamiss September 14, 2012 at 5:37 pm

And around HERE, those things are out on the lawn as decorations/usable items, not trash.

James Michael Curley September 14, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Holy Shith! That wing certainly looks like a Cirrus SR20 and if it is it probably is from the plane that Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle crashed into a building on the upper East Side. It has all the look of Cirrus like the vanes on the flap and alleron which drastically reduced turbulence and was a bit of a game changer for light aircraft at the time. Cory Lidle and his flight instructor, for what ever reason which was never discovered, made an intrusion into LaGuardia air space and turned left to cross Manhattan, striking the building in the mid 70's. They both were killed but the residents of the apartments survived with various injuries and burns. In a weird coincidence one woman was the elderly lady who was attacked by the Cat in the Hat at the Thanksgiving Parade in the '90's.

Noo Yawkers – I can really imagine some dude going home and finding the thing on the street after the fires and the excitement dying down and taking it home to put in his storage space thinking, "Maybe I can use this for something someday."

Biel_ze_Bubba September 16, 2012 at 5:01 am

Cessna 152, methinks.

I was working about 20 blocks from where Lidle crashed; we were all seriously spooked by the scores of police and fire vehicles screaming up Third Avenue, which you don't get for your average fire. (It was 2006, and people were still in 9/11 mode.) From what I read, Lidle was too low over the river to make a tight turn, which would have cost altitude that he didn't have. He had to go wide, so he circled around one tower, only to find another right in front of him. I doubt that his plane left any pieces this big.

But yeah, in NYC, someone would do exactly that, and I'd not be surprised if this thing was gone before the Sanitation guys got there. We also have scrap metal scroungers who cruise around in the wee hours of recycling days, looking for stuff like this.

James Michael Curley September 16, 2012 at 9:12 am

Looking at your original picture again it has more of the silhouette of Cessna with the bend between the flap and the aileron then the Cirrus which is straight. (Looked into buying one in the late 1990 and flew it a few times.) So it being there is even a greater mystery. Though I haven't gone into NYC much in the last decade and a half, I long learned there are many questions one just doesn't ask.

proudgrampa September 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Oh, you New Yawkers are HAWT!

Looks like all of you had an absolute blast. Next time, Jerusalem?

cromiller September 14, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I missed my chance to get a mugshot photo our Editrix, but at least my back wound up in the background.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Your back wound? Hope it heals OK.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm

The redhead with multiple pics here, was awesome, I was borderline stalking her, she is a lurker but i cannot remember her Wonkette name, but she should comment more, she was very fun.

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 1:38 pm

I would (will!) have a beer with all of you, and elect you President, also.

Lamey September 14, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I see how it is, dressy for fancy New York, not dressy for filthy Philly. To be fair, I'm pretty sure the NYC bar location did not require one to hike to the third floor just to be able to take a whiz.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 1:48 pm

There were hot dogs. And a big plastic pig. And the bathroom had a sliding door. So, it wasn't that fancy.

James Michael Curley September 14, 2012 at 7:51 pm

A lot of the bars in that area have the bathrooms down stairs and are about as large as 1 & 1/2 the area of those old brown AT&T phone booths. The sliding doors both accommodate the cramped area down their where the kitchen may be and comply with some kind of NYC ordinance about interior doors in a commercial establishment not opening into traffic areas. +++BONK!+++

NorthStarSpanx September 15, 2012 at 10:03 am

[shhhhhh James, I was trying to downplay how awesome the NY event was by not hurting Philly's feelings]

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Dear god my face somehow fills the entire frame, how horrifying.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Mea Culpa, you were much taller than I and so I had to shoot pretty much straight up!

HistoriCat September 14, 2012 at 2:01 pm

So you're the one with the glasses?

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I was gonna say, the brown one, but yeah. FUN FACT: I actually do have hair, my head does not simply vanish into the night sky as pictured.

And you are quite a handsome fellow in real life.

fuflans September 14, 2012 at 1:47 pm

our editrix has a fabulous wardrobe.

Monsieur_Grumpe September 14, 2012 at 1:50 pm

You know the trees are going to be turning soon in Minneapolis. It doesn't get much better than sitting downtown on a patio overlooking the Mississippi while sipping on your favorite beverage surround by a bunch of intelligent conversing Libtards. And if you’re really nice I’ll bring my woodchipper.

Hint HINT!

fuflans September 14, 2012 at 2:16 pm

i would so come up for that! we would bring mr fuflans' godson to the bar too!

Biel_ze_Bubba September 14, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Woodchipper? Aren't we supposed to do it with votes?

102415 September 15, 2012 at 2:34 am

No, I saw that movie. Woodchipper works just fine.

James Michael Curley September 16, 2012 at 9:14 am

Wood chipper, even before Fargo I used to sadistically joke was the NJ DIY Divorce Kit do to an incident in the mid to late 80's.

Lucidamente1 September 14, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Wonkette meet-up in my city, and I missed it. I has a sad x infinity. (But I'm glad a good time was had.)

Who's the looker in the red waistcoat? Phwoar!

Incitefully_Joe September 14, 2012 at 2:04 pm

I'm a little bummed we didn't post the photo of Danny, the bar's manager. Not only is he the winner for Best Moustache, but after everyone was shoo'd inside, he regaled us with old bartending stories involving Jimmy Buffet and advice on how to be a good bartender and/or patron. Danny is sort of the best, he got us pizza.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I have a great pic of him, will post to my Flickr.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 4:47 pm

I actually reunited him with a long lost friend from their World Fair days. The guy (then 15) ran the Alaska exhibit with his folks and they hung out for two years. Can you imagine coming of age – the life and times of The World Fair in New Fucking York?

actor212 September 14, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Wait. "Shoo'd inside"? Everyone?

How come I ended up outside the entire time? Not that I minded, I had a really nice long discussion with Frances Martel about Cuban embargoes and my cigars, but how the hell did I miss that?

Oh crap! I drank the wrong beer?!?!?!?!

Self-Uploader September 14, 2012 at 2:13 pm

It was fun. I left early as I only have a short window of time in social situations before the panic kicks in and it was frightening to see virtual people in the so-called real world. (Also my better half, whom I'd dragged along was hungry).

wonkette chicago 2013 is way better than the olympic bid.

Chet Kincaid_ September 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I'll RFP some designs for Wonkette Village on Northerly Island.

You should, it is great.

James Michael Curley September 14, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Do it. I haven't been there in a decade but it is fabulous. I was there once and had a Southern Fried Turkey (or Chicken) Breast on a big Belgian Waffle with Brown Gravy on top.

I have former NJ HS mates all over the country who wine nonstop over not being able to get real NY/NJ Home Fries.

Question is, were they made with onions or not?

James Michael Curley September 14, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Very good photogs LL. Good color balance, composition and no red-eye. I hate red-eye and even though I now have a camera which supposedly eliminates it, I forget to turn it on and still depend on a thirty year old flash attachment which has timing to suppress it.

You know shooting from below drops a half decade of everyone's age.

Nesnora September 14, 2012 at 2:21 pm

FUCK, I live in NYC and I missed it. Freedom just died, in my heart.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 4:51 pm

"Editrix and Jack" – is that Stuef?

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Yes! He was so sweet and not at all bitter and snarky.

HistoriCat September 14, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I know he takes a lot of shit around here for the Post that Made Breitbart and the Child Who Must Not Be Named Cry but I'm glad to hear that he's not bitter.

Crank_Tango September 14, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I'd like to think it was the post that killed Breitfart.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 2:57 pm

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Agreed.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I just sent MrLimeylizzie the pic of you and I and he wants to paint you! He thinks you look Siberian!

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 7:38 pm

WHAAAAAAAT? I am soooooooo floored. That is about the neatest thing I've heard (someone wanting to paint me.)

Mangolian. Siberian Yup'ik. Thai. Chinese, Latina. . .I am mistaken for any of 'em, all of 'em I'm put in front of over the years.

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I knew he would love the way you look, you have a completely original look, those amazing black eyes, plus he is probably tired of painting me!

MosesInvests September 14, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Hey-how about Austin on November 19? Weather should be nice, and we can toast the election results (or, God forbid, drown our sorrows about them), and drink to my divorce?

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Is this a celebration or a mourning? Sorry about the divorce MosesInvests.

MosesInvests September 15, 2012 at 10:31 pm

I don't know which it is-a little of both, maybe. It was getting to be a really lousy marriage, but divorce sucks. We filed Thursday, so it's been on my mind. Becomes final on 11/19, so one way or another I'm probably going to want to get hammered that night. And I don't even like getting drunk. Thanks for the good wishes-if you're ever in ATX, let me know.

I once met another woman from a message board- turned out we both lived in the same area(now) and she grew up here in Silver Spring. We both identified as Jewish women in our late 40's(ten years ago) and decided to meet for lunch at Corner Bakery in a shopping area. Her daughter was concerned that I might actually be a large male serial killer and told her to be careful.

Isner_Mahut September 14, 2012 at 4:06 pm

You were all so much nicer than I could have hoped. And better looking and tanner. Can we make Wonketting Liberally (or Drinking Wonkily) an annual event? Monthly, even?

Limeylizzie September 14, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I would love that! It was so lovely, wasn't it? I can say that every single person I met was really smashing, did we speak? I was so jet-lagged that I cannot remember any names other than the 3 or 4 I spent the most time with.

They were fun, the aunt was grumpy and awesome and the uncle was courtly and charming and kissed my hand, I would have let him go further but his wife was there.

NorthStarSpanx September 14, 2012 at 7:40 pm

He was charming. But I got a kick out of her, she was a 'pip.' Is that appropriate?

commiegirl99 September 15, 2012 at 12:15 am

Fuck you, "RUINED LIVER," I know who you are. No, they didn't pay my tuition, they "administered the trust," because not everyone in my family is a drug addict terrorist.

I am a non-drinker, so the task fell to me!

glasspusher September 14, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Well done, Lizzie! I always tell people that the pictures will look better if I'm behind the camera, but clearly you enhance them either way.It's funny, but even in my hard drinking 20s, so long ago, there was this zone of sobriety around my camera for me. Even when I was hammered I was still able to do everything right with the camera. Probably because I had been doing it for 10+ years already at that point (the photography part, not the drinking!)

valgal2342 September 14, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Finally a good photographer! That is until a great photographer, me, gets to one of these things!

valgal2342 September 14, 2012 at 6:39 pm

And being from Kentucky, shall I bring some fine bourbon, cheap cigs and bourbon dipped cigars?

I'll take the compliment.

She was lovely, I will let her out herself, but she had such a fantastic face and , for some reason I couldn't get a good picture of her, she has one of those really animated faces , so I was just snapping away at her like David Hemmings in "Blow-Up"! If I was a boy, or lesbian, I would totally want her for my gal-pal, she seemed like she would be huge fun and would be low-maintenance and cool.
