Cuomo approved his own plan? Great job bud, we'll put that one up on the fridge.

My theory is that it's under-endowed males who draw genitalia in the snow. They have a fixation on what they're short on.

I for one am pleased that the comments on this post are of the penistrator variety and not of the crazy old conspiracy theorists ranting about the mayor and the city council variety. A breath of fresh air on EV Grieve today, finally.

Well, now that you mentioned it, 9:23 a.m., the mayor and/or the city council could be resposibel for the snow penis and know the identity of and are in cahoots with the penistrator. You know, to distract New Yorkers from the real issues.
Bah Humbug.
