Tel Aviv, Sheinken: The city is going crazy about popular local website Secret Tel Aviv’s new interactive map, with Secret Tel Aviv’s key demographic groups leading the way. The doctor-phobic, who previously had to crowd-source their medical diagnosis on the site, can now meet up and consult with like-minded people as a completely suitable and safe substitute for actually, like, you know, going to the doctor and stuff. In addition, strangers can now find the exact location of that piece-o-crap couch you’ve been trying to sell for 100 ₪. Most importantly, Tel Aviv residents finally have a better way to source a sweater for their pet chickens. The Daily Freier talked to some of the map’s biggest fans yesterday at that coffee shop on Ben Yehuda near Frischmann.
“This new map is AMAZING!!!” enthused MASA Program participant Melissa C. as she consulted with several like-minded residents whom she had just met through the map. “Now, let’s say you met a really nice guy who is a Lone Soldier? And you had an amazing time with him last week at the beach before he had to go back to the Negev? But now, you have, like, a persistent rash on your left arm and stuff? Now maybe you can find out, like, what it is?” Melissa’s voice trailed off as she continued; “…….Asking for a friend.”
Despite the enthusiasm for the new product, not everyone in the community shares in the excitement. The Daily Freier caught up with its old friend, Yossi the Talking Household Mold, and talked to him about his views on this new application. As he tidied up his new place on Bograshov and hung a framed picture of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef (Z”L) up on the wall, Yossi shared some of his observations about the Map. “When I first heard about the Map, I gotta admit, I was kind of excited. Like, now I can learn prevailing wind conditions for the coming weeks, the addresses of prominent shputzniks and how to avoid living near them, maybe find out which buildings in Central Tel Aviv contain sub-standard weather proofing around their windows. That kind of stuff, news I can use….. But when I open up the map, it’s all henna tattoos and bracelet bars. So yeah; if me and my fellow bridesmaids want to get white-girl wasted the night before our best friends’ Indian-themed wedding on the beach, I’m all for it. But until then? Thanks but I’ll pass.”
The Daily Freier wanted to continue mocking Secret Tel Aviv’s new map, but is secretly hoping to get some sort of widget for its newspaper included in this exciting and ground-breaking new application.
