Watch a puppet explain how to be a perfect NYC tourist (video)
Yes, really. This hilarious creation should be required viewing for sidewalk-clogging, picture-taking, tracksuit-wearing visitors.

You don't need to tell us twice that tourists need to learn how to behave. Maybe that's why we're so taken with this video, in which a puppet named Johnny T., who tawks like that, explains the basic tenets of not-obnoxious touristing. These include visiting the outer boroughs for a taste of real New York, trying "all kindsa cuisines" instead of eating at the Olive Garden and, of course, that there are two speeds in New York: Move fast, or get out of the way. He also recommends that out-of-towners stay home between the hours of 4 and 6pm, when residents are trying to get home. Hallelujah.
