Bushwick’s Pizza Party, the sibling bar to Boobie Trap (which has been making its own headlines for haircuts this week), posted the above pic on Instagram today, saying: “Tired of cleaning up piss around the toilet so we thought we’d give ya a desired target.” The only problem is he probably likes it.
