Yes, That Bridge Is For Sale, Why?

Ah, tourists. So loving of our great city and yet, so easily duped. This is Map Wrap, which promises to add a touch of the New York Subway to any gift. Each sheet of "MapWrap" measues 20" x 30" (51 x 76cm) and two folded sheets come in each pack. And look! It's printed on Recycled Paper! $4.50.

How to save $4.50:
1. Approach token booth with friend or spouse.
2. Ask for two subway maps.
3. Recoil at attitude of token booth clerk.
4. Approach token booth on other side of tracks.
5. Repeat steps 1-3.

Why? Because it's a hell of a lot better to say, "And that's a real New York City subway map." Plus, you'll save yourself from having to answer why they've cropped it so that it appears that Mahattan ends at about 96th Street.

If you can't make it to New York City, give me your address and write me a check for $4.50 (plus $2.00 shipping and handling) and I send you a subway map. It will be more than I'll make all month from this blog.

Well the genius part is it's recycled, meaning they probably follow your procedure for their product. Cha ching!
