A Walking Blood Cell in LIC

Nothing is more surreal than crossing the street in Long Island City yesterday beside what I can only guess is a giant, glasses-wearing red blood cell, and overhearing him talking to the guy next to him about how hard it is to find an affordable 2-bedroom in the city.

They went into a Mexican restaurant, then came out moments later and went back the way they came.

  1. He’s an advert for Red Cross blood donations. I don’t know what his name is, but I like to call him the Hemogoblin.

  2. That’s hilarious!

  3. And now the theme from Bosom Buddies is playing in my head. Great shot.

  4. Thanks for making me laugh out loud, especially the part about their conversation. I needed that.

  5. It looks like a drop of blood, but isn’t a red blood cell. they’re shaped like donuts with too much icing.
