A few weeks ago, Larry called on his way to work and excitedly told me the following, which made no sense:

You have to go the long way to work and pass State Street and Woodrow Wilson. There’s a man with a dummy and a huge sign and it’s about Jesus and the dummy and…you have to see it. Bring your camera.

Even though I sighed and rolled my eyes, I dutifully took my camera to the corner of Woodrow Wilson and State, but the man and his dummy were gone. It was raining pretty hard by the time I got down there, so I figured they had both gotten a little hungry and decided to eat a Snickers bar and wait out the rain.

His sign, though, was still standing there. It pretty much says it all. I wish I’d seen the dummy.

    yeek!! i saw the “dummy preacher” during the campaign; i was walking up east capitol from miller’s, and–see, the dummy rides on his back sometimes, and sometimes he carries him, right??

    and i waaaay ran across the street. v. v. scary.

    HE’S IN STARKVILLE, TOO!!! He left his sign on the side of Jackson and 82. He’s really scary and that dummy freaks me the fuck out.

    If someone could scrape up a picture of the dude and his dummy, I’d be soooo appreciative.

    the morning after the election, this guy was working the northside/frontage rd. intersection. he had posted signs at all corners. the one nearest me had a line proclaiming “the beast ronald wilson reagan 666”, then warned of the second coming of said beast.

    I bet if he heard my chicken go “haaaaaaasssssss,” he’d make another sign. It was my chicken rising up!
