I love Overheard in New York. I noted a good one this morning:

Upper East Side girl reading book about knights:  Mommy, what does our family crest look like?

Upper East Side mom:  Poor people being crushed by a boot.

    I’m wondering if they’re the crushers or the crushees?

      That’s the beauty of the comment to me. First I thought they were the crushees, but it is “Upper East Side Mom” talking, so maybe they are the crushers.

      Kind of awesomely sick either way.

        Seeing that it’s an Upper East Side mom, I’m voting for crusher. Now I’m going to go schmear some Chaim Witz on a Ritz.
