No Title - too disturbed

 

Well, it's nice to know I can still be shocked.

 

Today on my walk home I stumbled upon (although not literally, thank god) a very unpleasant sight. On the corner of a major intersection was a man, drunk and unconscious, slumped motionlessly against some steps. Three very large piles of vomit lay around him, one directly beneath his face. But that was not what I noticed first. What had initially drawn my attention to this grotesque scene was the fact that the man's pants were down around his ankles, leaving all hanging (well, squishing) out the back. I didn't want to look too closely for fear of the image burning itself permanently to the back of my eyeballs, but I'm pretty sure that the vomit wasn't the only product of his bodily functions that had left its mark. Oddly enough, he didn't really get much of a second glance from the passers-by. Perhaps the sight of a man passed out in his own excrement and filth is not noteworthy. Blech, I say. Blech blech blech.

 

There is no photo for obvious reasons.

yuck....i don\'t know what to say about that. I can\'t believe that ppl just kept on walking by him without even taking a glance. Weird! Sorry u had to witness that. Take care.

that\'s one reason i\'m not a huge drinker... yeah i drink sure, but there isn\'t too much attractive or pleasant about most drunks really. I\'m not trying to be mean, but honestly someone all falling down, can\'t understand a word pass-out drunk... ummm, ain\'t nuthing pretty about that in any culture.Now, onto SHARING THE LOVE my long time favorite and always friend.I can\'t believe you\'re getting fewer hits lately considering what a great site this is - and i\'ve posted a blog saying so with your link. Spread the word kinda thing.I\'ll be dropping by at least once daily too, admittedly i\'ve been busy and haven\'t been as often. Me bad lol.omg i\'d be thrilled to help share the love hahaha.

Ugh!Maybe you should go back and take him home with you Mander. It\'s always a good thing to do a good deed, and it is nice to have civilized company visit from time to time.

hmmm, i\'m hoping this dude was passed out because of drinking or drugging too much, but you never know. I\'d hate for him to be ill with cancer or AIDS and dying on the sidewalk.ugh.

Thanks for passing on the photo- and for once I drop by and do not leave in a state of hunger. In fact- I don\'t think I can eat again for a while. Ew.
