NEW YORK - Some New Yorkers make the news for taking a stand. Jesse Taveras is suddenly famous for taking a seat.

The 19-year-old Bronx man was pictured on the front page of the Daily News Tuesday after he received a summons for sitting on a milk crate in front of the hair-braiding salon where he works.

"I don't believe this," Taveras told the cop who handed him the ticket, citing him for "unauthorized use of a milk crate," according to the New York Daily News,

'Don't blame me,'" Taveras said the cop told him. "'Blame (Mayor) Bloomberg.'"

The summons didn't say how much Taveras would have to pay for planting his bottom on the crate, which bore the imprint of Sunnydale Farms and a warning: "Use by anyone but registered owner is liable to prosecution, article 17A, General Business Law."

I think I saw a milk crate filled with clams and other shellfish at the fishmarket. Maybe you should come down and confiscate it/
