Found On The Southside

Whenever I want to see something that makes me scratch my head and wonder:

What the fuck?

I head over to the Southside. It is not my intent to sound like I putting this great neighborhood down: nothing could be further from the truth. Of all the neighborhoods in all of Brooklyn only this bit of 11211 straddling the BQE even comes close to some of the oddities I find here in Greenpoint. And on that note follows is something I encountered at the junction of Borinquen Place, South 1st Street and Grand Street recently. I would presume it to be an art work of some kind. Or some hitherto unknown pagan deity. Who knows? Life is mysterious.

Here is a view of its head. If you ask me it resembles Homer Simpson crossed with Mr. Peanut.* On acid.

Here is a frontal view. As you can see our little fella has rather protuberant buttocks. Astroturf appears to have been employed as well. Speaking as someone who once was both a teaching fellow and teaching assistant I have to admit nothing like this ever found its way into my classroom. It’s a shame, really. Had some fresh-faced student proffered up something like this I probably would have had a lot more interest in teaching. So it goes.

In any case if this item tickles your fancy (or you’re looking for a gift for that hard-to-shop-for person) better get down there fast. I doubt this urban artifact will be without a home for long.

*And bears more than a passing resemblance to the following, which is located on Metropolitan Avenue.

Yes kids, that’s a bigass portrait of Bernie Madoff being rolled down Franklin Street. The man behind the Madoff (and the dolley) is none other than Paul Richard. At last we met!  He was a very nice guy— if a bit coy.* He told me this portrait was purchased by a collector on the Upper East Side. Is this true? I’ll leave that up to you, dear readers, to decide.

*It should be noted that he seemed very happy to know the shit-laden manties on West Street were holding up.

P.S.: This one goes out to my ex-boyfriend Rich. Not only is he a married man now but he and his wife are expecting their first child. Congratulations Rich! You were (and still are) a real peach.
