Downtown Food Beat

Food (Chicken)So, I know the story behind this photo. An inebriated gent was enjoying a meal of roast chicken on the Scarth Street Mall mid-afternoon and wandered off without his “leftovers”. At the time this photo was taken (8 p.m.), the carcass had been sitting out for four hours or so.

As for the photo after the jump…  don’t know what’s up with that. But it’s consistent with a pattern I’m detecting in the downtown.

  1. The empty margarine and yogourt containers belong to the uber practical office types, probably from that Federal Taxation Building on 12th, altho, why they leave them and not continue to exploit re-use value over buying more stylish Tupperware is a question. It could be they’re ‘single-use’ reusables, and begin to break down and leach toxins into the food after multiple washings. OK< another question tho is why not garbage them yourself? Guilt? Do they think homeless people need them? Whatev.

    As for the rotisserie chicken, that rules. But is it Safeway or Extra Foods/Mike's? I'm guessing the latter.the chickeney-tinge of the meat and placement of the rotisserie whole screams Extra Foods/Mike's, as does the tray – Safeway tray's appear to be larger tham EF/Mike's trays, while Safeway's chicken's just aren't that creamy white underneath that golden seasoned greasy skin.

    Anyway, conclusion: Yogourt containers, abandoned chickens…from two totally different demographics and socioeconomic classes and thus unrelated and no, not part of a related pattern.

  2. This looks similar to my own shower my Partner and I got a hold of just lately,
    so happy about it for those upon the fence when it comes to acquiring
    one, do it, you wont regret it

  3. No, we’re not going to annoy everyone by using Captcha to stop spambots. I’m impressed that they’re getting through our defences, though.

  4. Captcha would annoy some of the people some of the time (posters, for a moment while posting); don’t the spambots already annoy most of the readers most of the time?

    We don’ see no steenkin’ defences.
