Lafayette French Pastry Shop Sells ‘Drunken Negro Face’ Cookies

By

Okay, one thing is to operate a kitsch-en serving slutty pancakes la Shopsins, but the proprietor of Greenwich Village's Lafayette French Pastry Shop, Ted Kefalinos, has gone way too far by selling pastries he refers to as drunken negro faces (for the inauguration, he changed the name to Obama heads for a day). Actually, one customer claims he referred to them using the N-word and told her that theyre in honor of our new president. Hes following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln; he will get his. Kefalinos denies this, and tells Fox News that the cookies are a work of art, and that some of his African-American customers like the image: Its not unflattering. I think its a fun face. You know, the Villager has it that those Obama fries at Rays Candy Store were a bad idea and that Rays is struggling. As far as staying in business goes, drunken negro faces have to be the worst idea in the world.
