A SURREY WITH A LUNATIC FRINGE ON TOP ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Hold your horsepower, folks, you won't believe what rolled-in to 7th and Montana on Sunday: A Happy-go-Lucky Family made the scene peddling a contraption that resembled a cross between a bicycle and a go-cart. "Look," said Kathy, "It's a genuine Surrey with the Fringe on Top!" "It's not a Surrey," interrupted a Mysterious Newcomer at the next table, "It's a Tuk Tuk: A vehicle that is commonly found in Thailand, used by natives as a form of public transport." I looked at him like he had three heads. "Furthermore," he continued, "they come in different varieties. In Bangkok, for example, one might find many motorized Tuk Tuks ..." He went on, but by that point the Surrey with the Fringe on Top was long gone and I was focused on a New Discovery: The spirit of Cliff Clavin -- the Know-it-all-Postman from Cheers -- is alive and well at 7th and Montana ...!

Cliff was a good character, but not as good as NORM!
