Someone in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is trying to turn a pile of “vegan” dog poop into a conversation about gentrification.
Only in Brooklyn, right?
Local resident Zoe Nora spotted this sign advertising “artisanal urban fertilizer” made of poop from a “vegan dog” on a post at Lincoln Road and Ocean Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens over the weekend.
"Mainstream fertilizers are not organic!" the sign warned.
But the site listed for more information, fertilizebk.tumblr.com, had a very different message.
“You’ve got to be sh--ting me," the post read. "We really need to start talking about what’s going on in our borough before people actually start selling artisinial [sic] dog sh-t."
From there, the site directs readers to "GTFOBK.nyc," which stands for "Get the F--k Outta Brooklyn" and encourages Brooklynites to “talk about the future of Brooklyn” with the hashtag #GTFOBK.
“To the guy on the train drinking out of a mason jar #gtfobk” one tweet on the site read.
“Overheard in #Bushwick: ‘I'm getting a tattoo on 4/20 because that just happens to be the anniversary of my spirit journey’ #gtfobk” read another.
"Take a moment to mourn the neighborhoods we've lost to gentrification," reads a photo showing Williamsburg, Bushwick, Carroll Gardens, Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant and most of the northern half of the borough covered in shades of black, red and orange.
The #GTFOBK group — whoever they are — published a video on a canceled $25,000 Kickstarter campaign last month featuring workers at a pizza shop telling “hipster” customers to “get the f--k out of Brooklyn.”
An inquiry to the group by email was not immediately returned.
