Grand Central Provides Ample Opportunity for Shamelessness


In an incredibly demeaning stunt of promotional stupidity, Bank of America has installed a 20-foot wide, 7-foot tall sofa in Grand Central, which will contain "loose change." You know what's coming next: Those pitiful folks in attendance will then have an opportunity to go digging for change in the giant couch. The change can be turned in for MetroCards and gift certificates — but, if you're actually going to go couch diving in public, with your face in the cushions and your ass in the air, you really don't deserve to eat or use public transportation. In fact, we're going to have to ask you to get some freaking pride or leave Manhattan altogether.
