As I was walking to the library, I saw a van parked on Columbus Street, near 82nd. This old, formerly white van, the lower third of which was covered with reddish mud, had the following written on it;
Please bathe me. I am ashamed of what the other vehicles are saying.
In the old Yugoslavia, a common joke was to paint "Australia or Bust" on the many abandoned, broken-down vehicles along the roadsides.
that's cute. but shouldn't it have said "Australia or Rust" instead?
