Halloween Portland style
The other night I spotted Death strolling down Hawthorne. Along with the sickle and hour glass, he was carrying a sign that said "Vote no on 35." Something I didn't know about the Grim Reaper: he's only 5' 4.
While stuck at an intersection this morning, I noticed an anthropomorphic salmon standing on the sidewalk. She was wearing a "vote yes on measure 34" sign around her neck and waving her arms to simulate swimming. The fish did this every time someone honked.
An Oompa Loompa I work with is a staunch Bush supporter.
I guess this is what happens when Election Day falls so close to Halloween.
