New York Post Launches Tour Bus

The New York Post now operates a tour bus. Yes, we’re serious. For just $49, the paper’s bus will provide tourists with a 2 1/2-hour pun-filled tour that goes through Midtown, SoHo, Greenwich Village and lower Manhattan.

Just what will riders see? How about the The Plaza, which inspired this Post headline: “TRASHED! [Charlie] Sheen in coke and hooker fueled rampage at The Plaza.”

“Overall, I want it to be fun for people,” said the Post’s publisher, Jesse Angelo, in a statement. “That’s the whole point. Every tour on earth tells you about The Plaza. None of them tells you about Charlie Sheen.”

We’d say tours don’t tell people about Sheen because no one wants to hear about the idiot actor, but sadly enough, we know people do care. Enjoy, America!
