Sign of the Times?


This afternoon at Central Ave. and Moreno in Montclair, there was a guy in a monkey mask holding a sign that said "Kiss my Hairy Ass." I pay attention to curbside sign twirlers ever since my husband informed me that twirling is considered an underground art form. But with a sign like "Kiss My Hairy Ass," I think this guy would have gotten my attention no matter what.

The flip side of the monkey man's sign simply had a question mark and a drawing of a banana. In other words, he was not "human advertising" for a business. Rather, he was just out there telling the world off on his own time. Or, he was trying to make people laugh. I'm really not sure which. Which means that what I saw was either really sad, or pretty funny.

THE END

oh man! I rode my bike out that way and took East end instead of central to get to the Montclair Circuit City. I wish I would've taken Central back like i had planned! I just missed it.

I am leaning twords "it's funny!"

I probably would have fell on the ground laughing had I come across the twirling angry monkey.

We all need a good laugh these days.
