Writing satire on the internet can be a dangerous game. Even the very best satirists run the risk of being taken completely seriously from time to time. Hence, it's not a big surprise thatthis post about a couple so desperate to live in Park Slope that they pay $300/month for an apartment with no bathroom was picked up as a real news story by England's Daily Mail. But rest assured, everyone. If Park Slope isn't going to tolerate public urination, ice cream, frozen yogurt, or chickens, it's definitely not going to tolerate these two (fictional) wackos.
