day 230: mannequin crime scene

Driving down University Avenue tonight, on the way home from Brick Oven with the kids, #2 and I both saw a crime scene out the corners of our eyes.  We both gasped as we noticed a half-clad woman lying on the sidewalk, head detached.  What else could we do, but stop and take pictures.  A quick u-turn at the light and we found ourselves in the perfect spot to decifer the evidence.

Lying in front of a small office.  Face kicked in.





Left with no dignity.






And a crown that matched her torn dress.






Yep, it was the Liberty Tax mannequin.





Poor thing.  Nobody likes to pay taxes.  And just because you have a nice figure and a matching outfit, don't think you are exempt from wrath.

Oh that's. . . funny? Too bad you didn't get there in time to rescue Lady Liberty! Love your "exempt from wrath" there. :)

The rise is mannequin violence is alarming!

I've seen people dressed in those same clothes, waving a sign while dancing. They best beware!

Terrible. And you didn't even pull her dress over her bum to give her back a little dignity before you took pictures? ;)

I didn't want to tamper with the evidence. :)

I think that's awful. Those Liberty Tax mannequins are *veery* expensive. No matter how funny it may be, it's still vandalism; both destructive and against the law.

Good grief!! You scared me half to death. I'm glad it wasn't a real person!

Good luck tomorrow!!

Oh my gosh I would have FREAKED!! I have bad night vision to begin with, and it would have taken a LOOOONG look for me to figure out what I was seeing!

(And way to go, endorsing public nudity and vandalism, Kaz. Cuz that's totally what this post was about, right??)

Didn't her momma tell her to always wear panties with dresses and skirts? She must have missed that memo.

Love this photo, and that you guys stopped to take it!

Oh my gosh. That's one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. She' probably going to need some plastic surgery after this.

The way she's just barely peeking out of the banner in the bottom pic is the icing on the cake. I'd be afraid to come back out too.

Note: I in no way support heinous acts of vandalism, no matter how funny they are. But I mean, who knows, maybe the wind did it.
