Like sitting on a gold mine
New York Post | Submitted by: wingnut
For three weeks, they'd been lounging on a discarded couch on a litter-strewn sidewalk near the Bruckner Expressway, only to learn from Post reporters yesterday that cops found $8 million in cocaine hidden inside. The news left one homeless woman staring aghast at the pile of beer bottles and broken wood where the already-legendary couch once sat. She was speechless, except for two words, which she repeated again and again. "Holy f - - -! Holy f- - -!"
