This poster perfectly illustrates how the world makes me feel on a daily basis. I have a raging headache now from the circus act that spontaneously erupted in my brownstone apartment’s front yard—two young women completely flipping out over the sight of a dead squirrel. One of them was clutching a couple of plastic bags and tittering nervously, her legs frozen solid to the ground.
After five, maybe 10 minutes of listening to them squawk and flap around in obvious circles, I finally stormed downstairs to tell them to frikkin’ cut it out and CALL ANIMAL CONTROL. Sweet Holy Mother of God, what do they teach kids in schools, these days? I’m going to have to start whipping out Chekhov’s spray bottle out in public, so I can squirt water in people’s faces with a firm “No, no NO. BAD HUMAN.”
