It’s National Hot Cocoa Day, in these United States.

It is quite amazing, really, the stuff you find scattered around the streets of Western Queens. Intentionally castoff manufactured items, or simply lost ones, abound. Recent effort found one wandering home via Sunnyside and this anamorphic headgear was simply staring me down as I approached.

Can’t blame it, I mean… look at me.

On the same day, this little assortment was encountered. This is clearly NOT the work of the Queens Cobbler, a local serial killer who leaves behind single shoe totems to mark their ghastly activities, as the shoes are in a pair and the Cobbler has never been known to leave behind kitchenware.

Captured a few weeks ago, the shot above does seem to bear all the evidentiary trademarks of the Queens Cobbler, however.

Someday, the Cops will batter down a storage room gate somewhere in LIC and find the lair of this footwear obsessed predator.

  1. In regards to the anamorphic bear(?) hat thingy photo, what different image greets the viewer when viewed at a different angle or is it a wide angle shot skewed to fit a more narrow screen?

    Wait, am I still in ex communicado for heresy, generalized naughty political badthink, witchery, etc. and therefore persona non grata if in fact a non-person? So, sorry- for the post, not the heresy or witchery and I’ll go back into oblivion now.
