This morning I was taking my walk, and I was relatively deep in thought, contemplating things I might write about as well as other goofy stuff. I pretty much had the sidewalk on one of the main streets in town to myself. However, I noticed that one person was approaching me from the opposite direction. He was a Charles Manson-looking guy with a scraggly black beard and wild looking black hair. He also looked fairly grubby.

I moved over to the far right of the sidewalk to ensure that each of us would have sufficient room to pass, and I returned to my daydreaming. As this guy was passing me, at the point when his head was about two feet from my left ear, he shouted, in a voice just like Satan’s voice in the Exorcist, “BASKET YER VETO!!!!. At least, that’s what it sounded like. Now two steps behind me, he shouted again, “BASKET YER VETO!!!! MMWAHAHAHAHA!!!!”

I damned near shit.

I figure he must have been one of the “Undecideds.”


  1. That’s just plain strange.

  2. .. down South, I think that translates to “pistol whip me unconscious, Mister… PLEASE”… funnily enough, many down here would oblige the poor sod…

  3. WTF? You know, if you’re gonna go through the streets looking creepy and yelling to strangers, you should at least have the courtesy to clearly represent your point. (You can tell him I said so.)
