Surrealism in Real Life...

 - - Driving along a major roadway during a snowstorm the other day,  I beheld a most remarkable sight...a clearly-miserable African-American Statue of Liberty, his head spikes battered downwards by the stormy was wrong on so many levels!

...It was a costumed representative of Liberty Tax Service, standing by the roadside in a simulated copper Statue of Liberty skin to lure customers to the tax service.  I have seldom seen a more incongruous, out-of-place, and unhappy figure than this, whose woeful situation and absurd presence added an unintentional comic note to a dismal winter day!
