Feet For Sale

Back In the 80s in NYC, Bob Camp called my attention to man selling a pair of human feet. They were in a very nice box, and he was only asking $75.00. Sadly neither of us had that kind of scratch at the time.



Sometimes I really miss the city, where people bring their weirdness to the streets.

In LA you're usually strapped to wall in a basement by the time you figure out someone wasn't, what you expected.

In NYC they bring even more of the weirdness to the subways.

True Haven, weirdness and fluids.

Hahaha, that's so weird! How were they even preserved?!

Vincent Waller said...

I'm not sure. They seemed very dry. So maybe they were freeze dried.

Yikes! Bizarre story, Vince. Did those pair of feet reek of anything, like bad athlete's foot? I want to hear more cool, weird stories like this in the future. It's what's still keeping me motivated to study and draw at this point, despite all the work I've been getting.

I'll stick with mine thank you.

LA sounds a lot like the south. The only difference is down here people will draw you into their weirdness by first acting very kind and sincere. Before you know it you've got a rope around your neck and a bunch of drunken, mullet sporting, snaggle tooth f*cks have you surrounded and demand that you squeel like a pig!

LA doesn't sound all that different from the south.

Did the feet come with a shoe option? I mean, even Barbies were sold with a starter set of clothes.

I wonder what other kinds of weirdness you'll find in NYC.

Everyday I come here and see severed feet and drag queens.
Post some new artwurk already!

Sorry JW, it's been very busy out here. I'll try harder.

You sir, are forgiven.>;)
