Ya know, we typically reserve this blog post for those that are giving Pittsburgh/Pittsburghers a bad name. But, honestly, I can’t say that today’s blog post is specifically about Pittsburghers “gone wild” or “gone mad.“
All that I know is this: It seems like everywhere I drive, every town, has someone who has sold their soul to dress as the Statue of Liberty and stand on a street corner or in the middle of the street to attract customers into bringing their tax preparation duties to THEM!!!
(This is going to be a short post because there isn’t much more to poke fun at then a person dressed as the Statue of Liberty yelling their head off in the middle of Greensburg, or Belle Vernon or Bellevue.)
To those companies employing the dancing, yelling Statue of Liberty Stand-ins…..Do you REALLY think that hiring a local unshaven person (including legs), putting them in a $2.78 Statue of Liberty suit, along with the $10 (Times Square fair market NYC value) Statue of Liberty foamy crown and then have them yell or spin a sign, while the wind blows the Statue of Liberty “robe” up over their belly so that we can see their jeans, instills confidence in ME that I should pick up the phone and call YOU to do my taxes? Save the, costumed characters and sign spinners for hoagie sales, Ya Jagoffs?
