Two white flags flew mysteriously from the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday morning, as if the borough didn’t invite enough jokes already.
Upon closer examination, the surrender had some deeper significance — the American flags were actually painted white.
Drudge, naturally, saw a metaphor (and a slow news day?):
Rumors the stunt was for a film shoot were quickly contradicted by reports that the NYPD was investigating, and ultimately pulled down the flags.
Brooklyn will rise again, because Queens is just too damn far.
