Another sight we saw on our trip to Burkittsville. This was not really Burkittsville, but downtown Frederick, which is actually a place I'd only driven through on the freeway before. We had quite a nice time kicking around here (although trying to find a movie theater is like looking for a needle in a haystack.... if that needle had been closed ages ago but was still advertised on Google maps) and the historic downtown area was really fun just to walk around. Then as we neared the more modern business area, we saw this guy reminding us that there were income tax services within mere feet of where he was standing.

Please, if I ever get to the point where I have to do this to make ends meet... just buy me an old van and I'll go live in it down by the river.

The photo doesn't do it justice, but this guy looked like he should have been fixing your HVAC system, not standing on the side of the road holding a store sign. He clearly had not yet found the humor in the situation nor a way to enjoy the task like those guys in downtown DC who hold signs and dance like a monkey for your entertainment. So when we turned around and drove past him again, this time with The KingofHearts hanging out the side of the car with a camera pointed at him, his look read, "THE STATUE OF LIBERTY IS GONNA KICK ALL YOUR HUDDLED ASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE."
