Imponderable 114.2: So, did Sari marry that hot dog vendor or what?

We’ll be back tomorrow with the regular Friday Imponderable (#115, and it is a doozy from Japan. All the best Imponderables come from Japan.) But today, we’re back with an update to the last Imponderable, the one about the guy who parked his cart in front of the movie theater with the big sign asking Sari to marry him.


Well, either this guy won’t take no for an answer or the guy was too lazy to take the sign off because just the other day we saw this parked in front of the theater again:

The next time we see him, we are totally going to ask him what’s what with Sari. (That is to say, we will ask the guy if A- he looks normal and B- not inclined to spit in my food out of spurned anger.)

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this vital issue.


Imponderable #114: Sari, Will You Marry Me?

25 Oct

October 25, 2013

It was a rare night out for Mr. Blog. The Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride (me and Allan Keyes) went into the city to see the RiffTrax guys (formerly the MST3K guys) do their thing on Night of the Living Dead. It was hysterical and if you want to catch it, too bad. It was one night only. but more on that in another blog.

When we left the theater we saw, parked partially in the middle of traffic, a food cart hooked up to a pickup truck. No big deal, right? Then take a look for yourself.


Romantic, right? I guess so. There didn’t seem to be anybody around. There was a guy checking out the coupling connecting the truck to the cart but he may have been a thief. He was dressed in dirty overalls. We hung around awhile, hoping Sari would come strolling out of the theater on the arms of another guy but no, nothing. Was Sari in the theater? And if so, what movie was she seeing? My guess- Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Sari didn’t come out, and there was no one around the cart anyway. And why the cart in the first place? Is there some special significance to it?

Did Sari ever see the sign? Did she agree to marry the apparently invisible dude? Did the cart get a citation for blocking traffic? Or was this all just a weird NYC thing?
