Miss Von Schtoop reads this Globe story about panhandling at Mass. Ave. and Melnea Cass Boulevard and finds it pretty funny, from the Bulwer-Lytton opening sentence to the lack of any mention of all the Boston Chargers kids who equally annoy motorists:
... They open the article with such a cheeseball line: "The call went out: "Yo, po-po!" and within seconds, the panhandlers who meander with regularity through the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard near Boston Medical Center scattered to parts unknown." Really quite unforgivable writing.
Pretty soon someone there is going to start an article with the line "It was a dark and stormy night.." at which point we can just hire a few wreckers to tear down 135 Morrissey Boulevard because all hope will have been lost. ...
