ABC Wednesday - Q is for Quirky

quirky_oops_alligator
Y'all remember ABC Wednesday - O is for Oops, etc.? Here's that same TriMet sign, altered. How quirky is this? Someone has added an open-mouthed alligator, waiting patiently for the falling cyclist. George Townboy, have you been in Portland and not let me know, bringing some of those gators you've been photographing in Florida?

If you're of a mind to, please go to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place for loads of other ABC Wednesday blogs! Look at the list of links per Mr. Linky.

That sign made my day.

Love your sign and the other photos, too! I thought the alligator was really there...imported from Florida??

The alligator is so so funny!

The sign is mindboggling!

The whole photo from yesterday is a much better composition then your intended crop.

The presence of the second figure walking into the shot focuses the other two elements, whereas in the crop without him the stripy guy is moving out of the picture.

Very funny.
Who would have thought there is humour at city council :O

Didn't I just read that Portland was the best city for bicyclists in the U.S.? I mean, I know my city's distinction as one of the worst hasn't stopped me from commuting by bike, but alligator attacks might send me back to my car. Sweet.

Great "Q" post. I did not even post a "Q" Just was not feeling well yesterday.

so i wonder if it's safe to walk along the edge, or if it's only bicycling that's dangerous... i think i wouldn't ride a bike.. and YEAH ME!! for guessing right yesterday =)

How did I miss you on ABC Wednesday? I pride myself on making it to everyone.....! Can you hardly wait until "Q" comes up again? I am running out of ideas!

Thank you for sharing this sight. I get homesick when I see it. I lived in Portland for 18 years and miss it greatly. I do enjoy seeing what you post everyday.
