Hello, Seattle

I love Seattle (despite the only mediocre winter weather).  Where else do people rent goats to clear brush in their yards or put statues of pigs all over the city?

Look what else Seattle does:

Ampersand

A random ampersand on a pole...

Seattle must have something with goats…

"Fainting Goat"

"Fainting Goat"--it sells ice cream and gelatos

(For the real story on fainting goats, see this video).

Oh, and for those of you who don’t know, the title is a reference to a song by Owl City, a one-man band originating in Seattle.  I’m actually not a huge fan of Owl City (I think it’s kind of a ripoff of The Postal Service), but they’re not terrible either.

“Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
On the docks and your boats
I sail above your inlets and interstates
Through the rain and open wind” ~Owl City, Hello Seattle
