ANNOUNCEMENT: Name A Stranger Challenge
So that @picnarkes has had another fancy idea: why don’t we write, every day in July, a few hundred made-up words about some weird bastard we saw in the street? He’s calling it the Name A Stranger Challenge (in July). It sounds like just the very kind of daft idea I’d enjoy and it lends itself well to our current spate of acronym-laden twitter hashtags so I’m going for it!
I’m going to try and write it about one of the strange strangers I meet while the Challenge is on (rather than the vast array of crazy fuckers I’ve already seen wandering the streets of Sheffield) so hopefully my first post will be late this evening. If the stars align I’ll get a couple of freaks eyeballed so I can get ahead of myself and have posts waiting first thing in the morning!
Please note: it is entirely possible that in the course of this Challenge I may inadvertently or intentionally ridicule and caricature the homeless, the socially maladjusted and the mentally unwell. Please also note that I’m going to enjoy every minute of it because they are so very, very funny.
