GUMBO and the Top 10 DUMBO Acronym Remixes

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 4:06 PM

DUMBO
Tonight in our little corner of Brooklyn below the bridges, Galapagos Art Space is hosting a first anniversary party for GUMBO, or Gay DUMBO, an amusing re-writing of an already redundant and ridiculous neighborhood acronym that makes us all cringe a little every time we use it. With the reluctant encouragement and participation of my colleague Henry Stewart, here are the Top 10 DUMBO Acronym Remixes.

GUMBO: Gay Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
B CUMBO: Bi-Curious Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
SMUMBO: Social Media Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass

More after the jump.

UHUMBO: Uber-Hip Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass (or Undocumented Hispanic Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass)
CARUMBO: Construction All-year Round Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
PLUMBO: People Live Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass?!
STUMBO: Stinky Trash Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
EFUMBO: Expensive Furniture Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
IWUMBO: Indistinguishable Weddings Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
OPSUMBO: Over-Priced Sanwiches Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass

Now DIYUMBO.
