  • Went downtown to check out what Hurricane Sandy had left behind.
    Saw these guys in Chinatown selling things for $1.
    Everything was for $1.
    Even stuff that costs more than $5, was being sold for $1.
    Where did they get this stuff?
    The warehouse, they said.
    What warehouse?
    Who knows?
    Everything was $1.
    $1 $1 $1 everything $1
