MUTT & JEFF DON'T GET THE JOKE
IS THE MANHATTAN MINI STORAGE AD INAPPROPRIATE OR AWESOME? WE SAY AWESOME!
Welcome to the city where ad copy writers never sleep, Fred and Jeff. You may not like it, but the truth is you two and international man of mystery, Saul Katz, are a joke. You have run this team and the franchise into the ground. Let's count the ways: payroll-joke, farm system-joke, medical staff-joke, ability to write a press release-joke, still paying Bobby Bonilla, Ollie Perez and Luis Castillo-joke, named new stadium after a defaulted bank-big joke, owning SNY but having no idea how to market the team-bigger joke, building a stadium that was more of a tribute to the Dodgers than the Mets-shitty joke, and the icing on the F'd up cake of hilarity...THE BERNIE MADOFF scandal that you didn't just take a hit on, but possibly played a role in? I hate to break it to you fellas but you are a joke, and now you have made the NY Mets one. Manhattan Mini Storage is not the bad guy- you are. Met fans get the joke because they have a sense of humor. They have to. Rooting for a NY baseball team that's not the Yankees takes a mix of heart, humor, and a dash of self loathing. New Yorkers take pride in their pain and with that pain comes a gallows sense of humor. We as Met fans wear the orange and blue as a badge of courage. We take the shots from friends, family, Philly, and random people on the street yelling, "The Mets Suck!" And still we pull for the Mets. Now it's your turn to take the shots, Mr. & Mr. Wilpon. If you can't handle it, then you are not Met fans and not real New Yorkers. But we never thought you were.
We applaud Manhattan Mini Storage for their New York sense of humor. Check out their website below if you have more shit than you need and nowhere to put it.
