Humor and Foul Language


"A real New Yorker has a way of speaking: a sharp tongue and utter confidence in humor as the appropriate tool for unraveling any event. When humor doesn't do it, there's always foul language to fall back on, although that approach is usually reserved for traffic related matters like taxi accidents and Jersey drivers."
J. Schwartzman, "When They All Went to Maxwell's," The Reading Room
