Aardvark

Somebody dropped an aardvark in the middle of town and put a party hat on its head. Now it lies there, bathing in the sun, in the sand. Oh, and it’s about the size of a whole block.

Whenever I walk past it, it makes me smile. Somebody had the temerity to think that up. And even though it’s kind of, well, … wild by city planning standards, a committee signed off on it. Not what committees do habitually. But they did.

Because it is just so right. And funny. And original. It stands out.

When did you last dream up an aardvark?
