A guy speaking to the excessively chatty stranger-from-out-of-town who’s taken the seat next to him at the fifth floor coffee shop in BG,  as said stranger launches into what seems like the fourth conversational gambit of his $6 capuccino. The other guy says: Look, you're an employee right? You're just here to make everyone in this place feel great?


My proposal re the gigantic billboard for Animal Planet TV show (or whatever) nearby on 1st Street, which is fitted with some kind of motion detector and has a weatherproof speaker system mounted on the wall above it and which emits a cacophonous chattering of loud jungle creature sounds anytime you walk past it, is simply that the whole thing be taken down immediately and installed at the deathbed of the person who invented it.
