Walking Invisible Dogs in NYC

tags: , , , , , , ,

As a NYCer, I can tell you that NYC is filled with weird people, but on some days, the populace is weirder than others. For example, more than 2,000 people walked "invisible dogs" down the streets of Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon recently. The leashes were on loan from the current owner of 51 Bergen Street, the factory space where the invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s. Participants of all ages spread out from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, very seriously walking their very silly dogs.

LOL, baby, LOL.

That is absolutely ACE. I needed that today.

BTW, Grrl, I have become convinced that either I have done something that has really pissed you off, or your email is automatically consigning everything from my yahoo email account straight to spam bin. Just by way of test, did you get my email about my passing through New York a month ago and just didn't have time to respond, or was it simply something you never saw?

OMG! i have no idea what happened! your emails don't seem to go to my spam bin .. so really, i apologize. i have NO IDEA what happened! (no i am NOT mad at you, not a chance!!)

I'm very glad you're not mad at me. :)

I've replied with an email, by the way. The interesting thing would be to see if gmail bins it server-side.

Haha. Like it a lot! The bit where the guy cleans up the invisible dog's business with a plastic bag is the highlight for me.
