You guys, we Americans are SO FAR BEHIND SCHEDULE for conquering Mars!
[from Captain Ken vol. 1 by Osamu Tezuka]
A mural on the back side of a “gas & food station” that’s visible from the windows of BART trains approaching or leaving the West Oakland station in California.
Our local attractions include:
- An amphibian exhibit
- Butter churning
- Lots of mud
- Almost daily dragon visits! They lick our buildings for salts and very rarely hurt anyone!
- World’s Most Kickable Town Idiot
- Mostly safe!
- Library with THREE books!
Yesterday at the coffee shop, I was reading stories about a PI named Max Latin and Amanda was drawing monsters. She asked me for a suggestion, saying she’d draw one for me to color, and I said “How about one with really long limbs and kinda wrinkly, like a Gahan Wilson drawing?”
When she drew the face of this creature, I said: “It looks like a sad dad monster who waits in the park, trying to lure children to play a game of catch with it.”
So that’s some of its luring cry on the left. If you walk past an abandoned field at night, you might hear a spooky “hey, sport!”
Just keep walking.
