I got this video from Thy Tran’s blog. As I mentioned in her comment section: It’s funny, cuz it’s true. It’s also sad, cuz it’s true. The exposition on the “bodega food pyramid” is hilarious all by itself, but Dallas and Rafi’s thanks to the gov’t forces that be for helping keep poverty alive and well in the Bx is political satire at its best.
It’s also not a Bronx thing, either. The place I call home, West Oakland, is infamous for having 53 liquor stores and no grocery stores in the area. Near as I can tell, it’s a real thin line between a New York bodega and an Oakland liquor store.
