Big Balloons and other interesting things

I see some pretty interesting (to me, who is easily amused) things on my commute to/from work. Now that the Hideously Mis-Named Elgin O'Hare Expressway (Which goes to neither Elgin, nor O'Hare) is my route du jour, since Lake Street is all fardleschnockered up, I get to see things like this:

You see that? Are they only just NOW cleaning up from the mess they made making the Blues Brothers movie???? This is the 3rd time I've seen this. Either this trucker is hauling the same 3 Chitown Police Cars around in circles thru the suburban expressways, or .... maybe it DID take them this long to clean up after the movie. I guess they might could have been ones left inside that abandoned mall they used...

Is he not adorable???
What I like best is the sandals and white-painted toenails. The t-shirt and shades are cute, but those feet just crack me up!
