The Best Thing That Happened to Me All Week

posted by on August 16 at 9:58 AM

Last night, just before 11 pm, I was walking past the police station at 12th and Pine. As I passed the entrance, a man in a head-to-toe Carmen Miranda costume (complete with towering fruit turban) came storming out.

He looked at me and shouted, “THEY WOULDN’T READ ME MY CARMEN MIRANDA RIGHTS!”

I love a man who can really commit to a pun.

That's the best thing that's happened to you this week?

Damn. That would be the best thing that's happened in my lifetime!

I've really got to get out more.

Come on, did that really happen? I don't think so.

I am sure it did happen. I saw the Carmen Miranda guy at Hot Mess at the War Room last night. He was wearing a feather headdress instead of fruit and I he could have shaved closer, but he did seem committed enough to inquire about said rights.

@4: YES!!!

@6: Oops. Maybe it was feathers, not fruit. But either way, Carmen Miranda Guy DOES exist.

Must've been the same sexy, bearded Carmen who appeared at Three Dollar Bill's outdoor screening of The Gang's All Here, starring that other Carmen Miranda.

How lucky for him that there was someone outside the station at the right time to hear the joke. Unless he had been running in and out of that door all night...
