Never alone with a Strand
I love the elaborate silliness of stuff like this.
In London, last summer, A. and I came upon what looked like a big silver dog sitting in the middle of the pavement in the Strand, right in front of the tube station.
Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be a large replica of the Scottie-dog player token from Monopoly, and was sitting on a chalked recreation of the Strand Monopoly-board location. No-one else around seemed to be paying it the slightest attention.
We entertained the fanciful notion that it was part of some insanely elaborate game of Monopoly played using board locations at the real London locations. Even by the standard of Manhattan chess or Pac-Man it would be a major undertaking, though.
