ROCHESTER, NY – While many Rochesterians are elated to see a new brew released by everyone’s favorite local piss river-based brewery, some old school Genesee drinkers are frustrated by the uniquely pleasant flavor of the new dry-hopped version of the classic Cream Ale.
“I don’t know why they would ever tinker with the perfectly good chilled bath water mixed with battery acid flavor of the original. Much like living in Rochester, it’s not meant to be enjoyed.” Said construction worker and crane enthusiast Samly Cuomo Rivers of Hilton
“Don’t get me wrong this beer tastes good, it goes down easy, and probably won’t give me gas that smells like a pile of burning diapers. But it will never measure up to the original because it will cost twice as much and I’m trying to get loaded and fall asleep in a lilac bush.”
ROCHESTER, NY – 86 year old Barry Mariotti is tired of the mainstream media and George Soros working against him to put him in a nursing home against his will.
“It’s that god damn Antifa, which definitely stands for anti family because they have infiltrated my family to force me into a home even though I am very competent and just won’t accept the Jewbama administration trying to poison my oatmeal with gay milk!”
“Black Lives Matter movement is a bunch of malarkey, if they would just stop resisting arrest they wouldn’t be killed.” Mariotti continued as he resisted his heart medications because the nurse is a “Hilary Clinton Benghazi operative”
ROCHESTER, NY – In a not widely publicized move, smoke shops have been deemed essential businesses by the state of New York. That means the 3 foot masterpiece of glasswork you purchased with your stimulus check is actually essential to living through these uncertain times.
“Listen if we don’t let people get their vape juice, their grape swisher sweets, and their grinders during these very uncertain and unstable times, how can we expect them to stay sane and not just start purging? It’s a safety measure meant to prevent anarchy, and to promote calm during these UNCERTAIN TIMES!” Shouted Governor Andrew Cuomo, fresh off a mega hit of that loud he got from his cousin Rivers
During these um, uncertain times, us writers really rely on the use of uncertain substances to maintain our uncertain sanity. The times, they’re just so uncertain that finishing this paragraph? Well that’s going to take an essential trip to the smoke shop to find a nice piece that doesn’t burn the beasters I just got so fast.
“Stay safe and smoke loud” Snoop ‘Uncertain Times’ Dogg”
ROCHESTER, NY – With isolation and social distancing having no end in sight, locals are beginning to get ornery about average weather for our fair city.
“I mean it’s bad enough we have to stay home and order Marks shit ass pizza every day, but now we are getting snow in April for the very first time? Normally April weather is perfect here in Rochester where the climate does not fluctuate. I blame China.” Said local pizza maker Mark Marker of Mark’s Markzzeria
“I guess there’s nothing left to do than sit at home and go instagram live while I do play by play of the 1999 Bills-Titans playoff game while shotgunning Genny lights” said Marker Marky of the Marksons Markeria as he jet skied off the Susan B Anthony bridge.
ROCHESTER, NY – With the news of sports leagues across the world canceling and postponing seasons due to the COVID-19 outbreak, one local sports squad is planning a return to business as usual.
The Rochester Rhinos ownership announced plans to play their full season in front of empty bleacher seats at Durand Eastman middle school in Irondequoit. When asked if they were taking precautions to avoid the spread of the deadly virus forcing the world into isolation, owners Nancy and Bob Macanudos said “what? There’s a virus? Is that why our neighbors are wearing masks and telling us to stop recruiting immigrants for our defunct soccer team?”
“We just figured we bought this soccer team and we have this Peruvian family living in our basement begging us for outdoor time so why not just pay a school janitor to let us scrimmage on the playground? We’re out of our god damn minds due to syphilis.”
IRONDEQUOIT, NY – Preparing for the potentially extended quarantine is hitting local residents harder than a garbage plate hits your colon on a Sunday morning.
Local dad and self-proclaimed brewmaster (he has a home brewing kit he has yet to open but did one-time mix Labatt Blue and Sprite and claim he invented White Claws) Darbert Landerball has already been forced to crack open his prized Flutie Flakes purchased last millennium.
“The way I see it is I’m hungry and nobody on the eBay has ever made an offer higher than $2.50 for this damn treasure. Still tastes like the shitty Frosted Flakes knockoff it always has been. After I’m done with these I guess I’ll eat the TO’s and freezer burnt Let’s Dough Buffalo Sabres ice cream I’ve had for like 8 years.”
ROCHESTER, NY – In a brazen attempt to reach the millennial and zennial and whatever the kids 17-21 call themselves these days, the CEO of Vector is trying to appease the younger workforce who desperately want to die by stabbing them with the company’s famous Cutco knives.
“We have a generation that just tweets that they want to die all day because the worlds gone insane and climate change will destroy us all. So I’m out here just committing assault with an extremely deadly weapon to get them to understand that death isn’t that great but these knives are truly the best in the industry” said CEO Barrister Chairester, who was absolutely drenched in blood while he stabbed me repeatedly with the sharpest knife I’ve ever felt.
ROCHESTER, NY – In an effort to curb complaints from concert goers frustrated by the long wait to get inside for concerts, MSA management has offered to provide blankets for those waiting in the cold. The fact that these blankets are definitely laced with the same disease used to wipe out Native Americans is just something you have to deal with if you want to be warm during the hour wait outside for a Journey concert.
“We’ve heard all of the complaints with our venue, be it the price of bud light being $9, no air conditioning during the summer that makes it a sweat lodge during a Godsmack concert, and most of all people who are frustrated by having to wait an hour outside in 0 degree weather because we only hire 2 people to work the door. Here’s some lightly used, lightly diseased blankets we found behind The Salvation Army, hopefully this will alleviate some stress for y’all” said Armory Operator and butt chugging enthusiast, Randy Bandiddle.
ROCHESTER, NY – No it’s not Julia Roberts hanging out with anal gerbil enthusiast Richard Gere, but the Roc had its own Pretty Woman scenario play out this past weekend when a lady of the night was given a free breakfast voucher at the Strathallan downtown from her client for “exquisite service in the industry.”
Alexandria Bae didn’t have to yell “big mistake” at the omelet station as she was treated to all the coffee, juice, and mini muffins she could ever want for an estimated value of $17.99.
As an added bonus, Alexandria even received a complimentary Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookie at checkout, completing what was a beautiful romantic evening with an unknown Xerox executive.
ROCHESTER, NY – Winter has arrived and with that, parking in the city just went from wildly inconvenient to an absolute waking nightmare for those who wish to go out in the city or just live there without the luxury of off-street parking.
Nowhere is that need to park anywhere but the snow and ice-covered streets more necessitated than Meigs Street, where your mirrors and tail lights serve as an obstacle course to drunks trying to navigate down a 4 foot wide, unplowed road at 3 AM during nonstop snowfall.
But here are some tips and tricks to steer clear of having to go to the detailing shop because some dipshit played bumper cars after a long night grinding at Vertex…
- Take an Uber – No way to get your car clobbered if you leave your car home in the suburbs or wherever it is you live to avoid the hellscape of parking anywhere in the city on a weekend. Why’d your buddy even pick JD Oxfords? Do you even like him enough to go hang out there on a Saturday night when it’s 10 degrees out? F*** you Jeremy.
- Throw some parking cones around your car – Hey if the city isn’t going to plow Meigs, throw on a safety vest and pretend your car is a construction site. Maybe just maybe it’ll help push travelers to the other side so they can hit those cars instead. If you get a ticket from a Parking Monitor, just throw it away, parking tickets aren’t real.
- Park at Mark’s Texas Hots – They say if you park there, you’ll get towed: and they’re right you will be. And you’ll be towed to the scariest lot you’ve ever seen where nobody is even there and you’ll have to handsome dude who just rolls up in a beat-up civic your credit card to pay $180 in the hopes he can actually let your car out. But hey it beats the bill you’ll get at any repair shop for the damage of a hit and run am I right?
- Go to Hooligans in Greece or Webster – Just bail on city plans and go to the suburbs, where you can park your car safely away from careless drivers and can just go inside and get into a fight with someone who looks like Ronnie from the Jersey Shore.
