'Hot Chicks Room' sign will now bring ruin to compost

Dave Itzkoff at the Times reports on an impromptu ceremony outside the future Upright Citizens Brigade home on Avenue A today. Amy Poehler, a star of “Parks and Recreation” and a founding member of UCB, presented the founding directors of the nonprofit group Earth Matter with that darn "Hot Chicks" sign. Per the article:

The sign will decorate a compost learning center run by Earth Matter on Governors Island. This “Hot Chicks Room” will feature a greenhouse containing chickens who, in their own way, will teach visitors about the nutrient cycle and waste-reduction practices and help create a fertile soil additive for the island.

gotta say the only party coming off as corny (uptight, humorless, parochial, ridiculous) here is the east village.

Best free publicity ever, I think she doth protest too much. (signature collector may have been paid though)

I guess my new tavern, The Pussy Pit will have to be
called something like The Cooch Cave.

Billy, nobody was being humorless, the sign isn't funny. It also isn't offensive. It is just annoying/fratty and made no sense. Bye.

Guess my plan to open the Labia Lounge should be on hold as well.

OK, so am I the only one bored out of my skull over this whole Hot Chicks Room sign imbroglio, or do I simply have the attention span of a gnat? Just wondering.
