A gentleman calling himself The Count of New Mexico just phoned, offering his custom motorcycle jump ramp services. Says he has a number of pre-fab units already assembled, without buyers, just waiting there at the lot.

He also said he knows I don’t ride motorcycles or have any interest in riding them off ramps. He said he knows I do have an interest in setting up an extra-legal mobile carnival and petting zoo for use in the many parking lots of abandoned retail stores in the area.

I asked him if he wore a cape and if he would mind if I wore a cape while standing next to him in publicity photos.

He then hung up the phone.
