Dear Daily News,
Several alert readers have pointed out that today’s newspaper has an article entitled “Tree grows through office at Cove Auto Towing in Queens” by Barry Paddock – just days after I published my own piece about a tree growing through an office at Cove Auto Towing in Queens! No mention of Scouting NY or anything, but I’m sure you guys came up with it all on your own anyway.
I am reminded of another Daily News article earlier this year by Katie Nelson, “Old-school (legal) graffiti makes appearance as a 7-train painted on a delivery tractor-trailer,” which appeared literally two days after I wrote about how old school legal graffiti made an appearance on a 7-train painted on a delivery tractor-trailer. And again, no mention of Scouting NY.
I’m really glad I’m able to keep providing you with original content for your publication free of charge. In fact, if you go to the archives, you can find over 400 articles detailing the unknown minutiae of New York City to crib from.
Just please, do not ever credit me.
I hate when people do that.
PS – Reader Scott suggests I point out that I’m being sarcastic and that I actually don’t want you to take my stuff. I feel that is obvious, but you never know with some people.
