Twenty Fourteen: More Action Figures & Mosh Pits - Less Ignorant Cops

January 11, 2014  •  206 Comments

"Are we that interesting? That you must photograph us?" said one of the officers who approached me on the sidewalk last year in Five Points - a college bar district in Columbia, SC. Immediately I had flashbacks to what it was like to deal with these types of humans at middle school lunch. "No sir," I responded, "But that guy with the cheese head and the pillow is comical. It's visually stimulating. Even the light works."

It's Halloween night and big surprise - the police have had their brains devoured by hordes of zombie students. The officer then informed me that they (or at least he or someone in the group of officers) did not appreciate their souls being stolen since the zombies had just eaten their brains.
