Just Counting Cars

I saw these two sitting on the corner of 57th Street and 5th Avenue on Thursday night. Obviously, I was super curious to find out what they were doing with these crazy counting contraptions while they were watching the traffic. I asked, "What are you counting?" Their response? You guessed it. "Just counting cars."

It nice to see that the city still has money in the budget to keep them employed in such a worthwhile occupation. Excellent use of pencils too. You never see people using pencils anymore. You'd think since they're sitting right smack in front of the expensive Bergdorf Goodman window displays that the store would spring for some designer duds to spiffy up this intrepid duo's appearance.

This would make a really good performance art piece, don't you think?
