Jenny 8. Lee Fires Washington Up


By Patrick 

The NYT’s Jenny 8. Lee (you know, her) recently blogged about WMATA’s recent ad campaign that boasts about Washington’s smaller rats (compared to New York City, presumably):

    Washington’s system may be rat-free, but its subway map also has all the sophistication of Fisher Price.

Oh. Snap.

DCist’s Sommer Mathis calls her “Jennifer ‘I probably shouldn’t make pathetic attempts at insults with a middle name like’ 8. Lee.” But Gawker says, “Dear D.C.: Whatever, Our Rats are Better Than Yours.”
