There’s no denying that Breaking Bad was among the ranks of the great shows of the past decade. Be that as it may, a themed coffee bar (it’s too sophisticated to be called a coffee shop) in its honor is hardly the look it needs to perpetuate its roguish persona. But alas, Williamsburg wouldn’t be Williamsburg without capitalizing on the love “men” have for Walter White, but really, Jesse Pinkman.
Just the sort of thing to allure the hopelessly dickless
The 2,100 square foot space will be opening on the douche bag row known as Wythe Avenue, where the Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn Bowl, Output and Verboten already serve as a conglomerate magnet for assholes. And so, to bring in Walter’s Coffee is only natural. The difference between this location and its original one in Istanbul is that, well, Istanbul is filled with “men” with far bigger dicks than the ones found in Williamsburg.
Throughout the course of history, a great many “men”–both real and fictional–have proven themselves to be utterly sociopathic. From Napoleon Bonaparte to Walter White, tendencies toward megalomania and a general lack of conscience have run rampant among the collective male psyche.
Napoleon: a pint-sized sociopath
In a way, there’s something envious about this quality. To be able to just not care, to say, “Fuck it, I’m only ever going to think of myself and my non-existent dick, forever and always,” is rather courageous–but also completely smarmy and deplorable. Women, while often veering toward vacuousness, at least possess decency and compassion. Try to get that from a “man” and you’ll be met with a grunt or a false boner as he attempts to “console” you with sex.
