Tell me if you do. Once again, I would not, could not make this stuff up.
- Driving down the street with sloppy, handwritten signs decrying a political party and saying "the worst cities and states" are run by them. What exactly is the driver hoping for? That passing vehicles will suddenly jump up and say, "Why, YES, my good man! You must be right! Let me go change my voter registration RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE, and let's all move to a state run by your guys!"
- Another genius calling me last week and insisting that we should move this event (the location of which is printed on posters, brochures, etc., and scheduled with vendors and volunteers) right into downtown. "Because," she said, "Lots of groups get permits at the last minute and do that." Yeah - protesters!
I simplified my reply: "There's no parking downtown."
Caller: "Oh! Okay."
Since that worked so well, perhaps it should be my answer to everything from now on! It might work. It's Portlandia, after all.
