COBBLE HILL—Somebody left some sort of gloppy, revolting meat-object hanging on the front gate of Court Street boutique Teddy. The blog Pardon Me for Asking has photos, but this is one of those times where you're probably better off just imagining it. The store owners seem admirably cool-headed about the incident, writing, "We are as surprised by that nasty little present as anyone who sees the picture. We are checking with the local butcher shop and have informed the police, but we really don't think it is anything other than some moron with a sick sense of humor. Our cameras will catch them if it happens again. Grossness and stupidity combined! Yuck." [PMFA via Gothamist]
