As I headed towards the west side last night to catch the train uptown, I took some time to stop along the way to enjoy the decorations that can be found all along 6th Avenue adorning the otherwise drab office buildings that pepper the avenue.
As I approached Fidelity on 5Oth and 6th, in the Time Life building, something didn't seem right.
For years, what one would see in this spot was a tangle of giant Christmas lights sitting atop the pool
This year, you will find the most heinous, evil of clowns rocking back and forth in a Jack in the Box.
I stood in front of this vision and couldn't help myself, I started to cackle like a madwoman in front of the Time Life building, staring in disbelief. I think the sight of this awful, leering clown gave me a fit of the nervous giggles. But I mean, just look at him! He's clearly mocking me. Fucking clown.
I hate clowns so much that I realized that, had I been an employee at the TIme Life building, I might have had to quit due to the fact that I would not be able to walk past that thing every day for a month without skeeving. This is serious stuff!
Time Life, do us all a favor. Bring back the Christmas lights!
