The New Year arrived with a bang at 7th and Montana this morning as competition reared its ugly head. "I think Wal-Mart has now surpassed 7th and Montana," said Howard, who sent me a link to a video filled with more than two dozen snapshots of weirdos from Wal-Mart, all set to a tune by a man known as "Mr. Walmartian" who claims that "every night is Halloween" at Wal-Mart. The video -- Walmartians -- features everything from men-in-drag to women popping out of their spandex, not to mention a stray butt crack or two. Well, Mr. Walmartian, if you're out there, I'll see you your two dozen weirdos and raise you a psychopath. Meet Mr. Bong, a new loon who descended in our midst at 7th and Montana this morning like baby new year. He roller skates around the neighborhood while playing a Bongo drum and yodeling like Heidi on acid. And something tells me you won't find him at Wal-Mart ...!

Wal-Mart may win the Halloween wacko award, but your corner gets the other 364 days.

There used to be a black man who beat a barrel at night on the downtown streets of San Antonio. I think he was called Bongo Joe or something like that. He became quite well known and people gave him money.
