A rant

  • Today's dance-off between two sign holders... Seriously? Handstands and flipping your signs about make it hard to avoid looking at you. 
  • Walking mattresses. So sad. You're dressed as a mattress. This is the saddest breed of human signage. How does your mother explain you to her friends?
  • Bickering tweakers. Thrusting your signs for condos in the general direction of traffic while you argue over "turf". Oh, you crazy meth heads. 
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Pizza Time must have been lost before you came along with your flamboyant martial arts Raphael. You make me feel weird. 
  • Air guitar. Just because Little Caesars gave you a guitar shaped sign does not mean that we all believe you're a death metal demigod. Ackkkk!
