At 12:36 this morning, right as I was settling down to Conan’s second unscripted monologue, a big-ass flatbed truck and a bunch of police cars slowly moved down a blocked off Willow Ave in Somerville.
What was on the flatbed? I’m guessing some sort of giant HVAC device, but it’s dark out. I could read tomorrow or today’s papers, but I’ve got fart jokes to write. Instead, I’m going to pretend it’s a cage containing a reanimated mammoth on its way to Tufts for further study. Will it escape, mauling dozens and teaching all of us a valuable lesson about the hubris of science? Yes, at least in my fevered imagination.
I posted more, yet even crappier camera-phone pics on my Flickr page.
