Notes from Chris

Comedian Todd Lamb often posts odd signs from a fictitious person named Chris on lamp posts in New York City. They form an ongoing story about the life of an eccentric man who wants to meet other people like him. The Village Voice interviewed Lamb about the project:

Tell me about the Chris character.

I feel like a lot of New Yorkers are in their own little world, whatever that world is. I wanted to see if I could break them out of that. For Chris, all he wants to do is meet up with people, because he's not busy. He's the opposite of all these New Yorkers who are booked solid throughout the day, and even if they had free time, they wouldn't want to meet up with you.

Chris has lots of time and is wiling to meet you for the most mundane things. And no one wants to do those things except Chris. Like, Chris wants to eat some Fritos and move a mattress. He just wants soda, snacks, and your time. via Super Punch | Interview

What's sad about this is that I totally would have thought "Chris" was completely serious considering how many weirdos there are out there.

I found a new friend. His name is Chris. Maybe we can meet him in back of Con's house at 4pm or so. I have lump charcoal and some starter fluid. Let's see if Long Pig really does taste like Razor Back. If Con has no ketchup or coleslaw lets just forget it.
