IFC, the channel of Portlandia if that says anything, is sponsoring the LoCo Awards & Sweepstakes, a celebration (which is actually just a huge promo for one of their new shows) of those zany, cheaply made local commercials that we all love to hate so much.

When federal agents slaughtered more than 250 geese in Prospect Park midway through the summer last year, boxing them up and tossing them into a gas chamber under the cover of darkness, we hoped the worst was over.

New Yorkers are easily identified outside of the city by any number of things. Maybe the way they expect everything to move faster, taste better, or speak clearer.
