Keeping Portland Weird

I was downtown for one meeting (NW24th and Quimby) and had another at NW14th and Everett so I decided to walk.
While walking up the street on 23rd is coming at me a completely naked man with a hand-written sign around his neck. I thought maybe the sign would indicate why he’s walking around naked, some political statement, something, but the sign was in pencil and I couldn’t read it from a distance. And of course I don’t want to stare at this naked guy trying to read this sign. So I keep glancing and can finally read it as he comes by: “I lost my pet.”
Ah, Portland.
