This comedian's Humans of New York parody is spot on

‘Like if you cry every time’.

HAMISH BLAKE IS an Australian comedian and evidently a big fan of Humans of New York. The madly popular Facebook page features a daily photo and story from someone photographer Brandon Stanton meets on the streets of New York.

Hamish wanted to be featured while he was in New York, but it just wasn’t happening for him.

F this BS. I've been waiting on this street corner for about 6 hours now trying to get photographed by the @humansofny guy and I've got NOTHING. I'm giving this 10 more minutes and if he still hasn't shown, I'm taking matters into my own hands.... Source: hamishblakeshotz

Ten minutes later…

He just went ahead and posted his own.

I grew up on a ketchup farm in Mississippi. We would go out all day and dig up bottles of ketchup then sell them by the side of the road for 10 dimes, which most people just call a dollar now. It wasn't till I was 18 that my pappy told me there's no such thing as a ketchup farm, he was buying those bottles in town and burying them in the middle of the night just to give us something to do the next day. They cost him two dollars a bottle, so we were losing a solid dollar every bottle, plus the time spent digging them up and him sneaking out every night to bury them. After I found out I moved to New York to become a jazz dancer. I became a hit and danced privately for many well known celebrities and world leaders. I would sometimes dance quietly for Einstein in his study, he said it helped him think. I was dancing softly in the corner when he came up with the E equals Mc Squared stuff. You seem quite young to have danced for Einstein You're very kind young man. @humansofny #hamishsofny Source: hamishblakeshotz
