Ack, I should have done this sooner and tacked it onto the 'quote of the day' post, but better late than never.
[sidenote: odd that it's Friday the 13th for the second month in a row. How frequently does that happen?]
Lisa was telling me about a frequent customer at her place of employment. His real name is unknown, but the staff refers to him as 'The Joker'.
Because he wears a picture perfect mock up of the traditional purple (Batman) Joker getup, complete with all the tiny details you'll catch only if you obsess over the TV and movie versions of the character.
He's apparently had his face tatooed in the maniac Heath Ledger Joker style - white face, smeared blood red smile, the whole shabang. Tatooed. As in 'I'll look like this forever'.
And what's really odd is that he browses, shops, and purchases as if he looks no differently than the little old lady down the block. Apparently this isn't just for attention, he actually lives the part.
Let's hope he avoids the messy 'serial killer' bit tho' eh?
