I work in Downtown Denver. I was just outside enjoying a smoke when a guy came around the corner in a wheelchair. Not funny. However, he was pushing himself along using BOTH of his legs. Okay, still not funny, but it tickled my warped sense of humor.
I got to thinking, I see weird stuff like this EVERY day and I'm sure those of you who exist in big city environments see interesting wildlife as well. Care to share?
Some of my other favorite "specimens..."
The lady who practically wears clown makeup, has hair like early Madonna and a huge silver hoop earring through her nose.
The little person, his name is Tim. I know that because he rides a tricycle with a big trailer and has about 30 of those novelty name license plates on it. Whenever I see him he tips his hat and says "hello ma'am."
The guy who looks like a mountain man (huge bushy beard) that walks down the 16th Street Mall yelling at the top of his lungs random things such as "HELLO 15TH FLOOR, I LOVE YOU" or "IT'S OKAY TO BE A CORPORATE SLAVE, I DON'T HATE YOU." Usually this happens accompanied by his guitar or a Bible being brandished with broad gestures.
The guy who holds a big brown sign with white paint. Today it says "Clinton raped Juanita." Not sure what that means, but it's enjoyable to see for some reason.
The Clarinet guy. He is older than old and sets up at various places downtown with a lawn chair and a box to collect money with various sayings all over it. He plays swing tunes and patriotic songs on a clarinet. He now has CDs available for $5.
