Oh shit! I wondered why I hadn't seen him in a while. Thanks for posting this.

Fuck you, you miserable twat. I haven't even watched this video but I guarantee this dude who cut carrots for a living will be more sorely missed than you.

I thought that would get a rise out of someone.

Is it lonely under your bridge?


5 stars for anybody keeping the art of the street vendor alive.

When I lived in NYC I walked by Union Square every day and I never noticed him. What the hell?

I really want one of those fancy slicer-peelers. Even beyond the grave he's an excellent salesman.

Looks like you can buy them online, at http://www.simplygoodstuff.com/star_peeler.html

But it doesn't seem right to be buying it there.

My wife and I have been saying for a few years that buying a Star Peeler from him would be one of the last things we did before leaving the city, if we leave the city. Wish we'd done so - I saw him on the street probably twice a week over the last few years.

In conclusion, fuck ShamWow Vince - this is how it's done.

I want one of those. Partly because I stir fry a lot and a freaking hate using the mandolin, and partly because I'm just sold.

What a character. Wish I knew about him sooner; I would have paid a visit.

Neither red wine, nor Alex Chiu's magnets saved this man from the grave. God DAMN you, Trans-fats!
Mike Tyson?!
I want this slicer right now. RIGHT NOW.

When my best friend moved to NYC a few years ago for school, she drew a picture of this guy and mailed it to me. She was so excited about him, and I didn't really get it. I never got a chance to see him when I visited there, and I regret not doing that now.

You had me at potato.

Jesus fuck this guy can sell.

Well, could.

I want to buy this potato peeler. Oh god, I need to buy this potato peeler.
