Some snarky overheards

I was skimming Mobtown Shank yesterday and started thinking.

What if I could make up an Overheard that would sum up a neighborhood?

So I came up with faux, snarky Overheards for a few Baltimore neighborhoods.

If you have any you'd like to contribute, please feel free. 

Here are mine ...

In Hampden, where even short people look down on you:

"Have you heard the new Steve and Estelle?"

In Fells Point, where bums outnumber bars:

"Hey bud, you got a dollar?"

In Federal Hill, where two brain cells is too many:

"Here, bra, lemme pop that collar for ya."

In Canton, where 30 is the new 20:

"Are seven pairs of flip flops too many for one dude?"

In the Inner Harbor, where chain stores and restaurants are the only option:

"OMG! The dolphin totally just splashed me! LOL!"

In Harbor East, where Whole Foods is the place to see and be seen:

"I totally can't tell you had work done."

In Station North:

"Were those gunshots outside or sound fx from the avant garde DJ playing next door?"

In Dudalk:

"Are these acid washed jeans and 80s blonde dye too much?"

"Naa honey, just right! Let's go to Howards!"

My brain still kind of refuses to believe that 'Harbor East' exists

Steve and Estelle are amazing! I heard them play at a party in Charles Village. Do you know if they have any shows coming up?
