Dyster/DeSantis Jokes - About as Unfunny as Ever…

October 21, 2014

Since the team of Mayor Paul Dyster and his senior planner Tom DeSantis are going ahead with their plans to "improve" Jayne Park on lovely Cayuga Island, and frankly we are doubtful that it is going to improve an already pretty perfect park, what better time than to tell some jokes at their expense.

What they lack in humor perhaps will be made up in snarky bad taste…

Dyster and DeSantis; We haven’t seen a team like this since pestilence and famine.

Tom DeSantis is making history every day at city hall. He created the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad legacy out of thin air and then declared Paul Dyster’s street to be historic.

Dyster and DeSantis are just getting started with the train station “transformation” of Niagara Falls. Their next two projects are a buggy whip factory and a hoop skirt boutique.

Is it possible that the mayor and his chief planner are simply two misunderstood geniuses? Nah.

Paul A. Dyster and Thomas DeSantis…the Abbott and Costello of government and planning.

Dyster and DeSantis are doing the best they can. And that’s the problem.

The mayor and his planner hear voices that us mere mortals can’t hear… the voices of Curly, Larry and Moe.

DeSantis and Dyster are big proponents of the Olmstead park use and development theory. Uh-huh. We all know Olmstead approved of asphalt walking paths, boat launches and parking lots.

The other day Tom told the mayor he wanted a rug. The mayor offered to drive him to a wig store.

Tom taught the mayor everything he knows about planning a city. Now, that explains everything.
