Default Odd thing you saw today

Yesterday evening I saw a car with a fake foot, like from a mannequin or something, tied below the rear bumper. It was just low enough that the toes would drag along the pavement as the car was driving.

I've been playing South Park: Stick of Truth, in which the children are playing a fantasy game and are all dressed up as warriors and elves and things.

I was in the pub on Friday, when towards the end of the evening a group of people suddenly appeared from the back (they must have been out in the garden all the time). They were all quite short and on the round side, and the women were dressed in pseudo-medieval corsets and Disney princess type stuff, while the only guy was wearing a slightly tatty green Robin Hood style costume.

They looked exactly like characters from the game... they could even have been cosplaying that, for all I know. It was odd enough suddenly seeing random cosplayers in the pub anyway, but even stranger that they looked like characters from South Park dressed up.

I was out late last night and as I was driving home around midnight, I saw someone doing yard work: looked like they were raking leaves.

Mine at Safeway (on the 25, IIRC) came out to exactly $30.00

Walking home, all the trees in a certain part of town had legal notices posted to them. I read one and it was pseudolegalistic sovereign citizen nonsense about notifying the authorities that someone isn't a freemason. I thought it was odd that there weren't any on lamp posts or walls or mailboxes, only trees, perhaps due to part of their legal theories.

In Seattle, if you post a notice on a lamp post or telephone pole, it generally gets ignored by the authorities (unless there are so many notices they're a hazard of one kind or another). But if you post one on a tree, it gets taken down fairly rapidly (I saw this in action once, with a yard sale notice). Perhaps your poster expected something like that.

At the grocery store today, I saw "French Toast Bread" made by Freihofer's(thicker slices). I never knew such a thing existed.

A car with the license plate "BMW 1". It was a Mercedes.

and

A grocery store circular with a first page that advertised several meat items at 19 cents a pound, limit one item, with a $100 purchase. On the next page, many of the same items at 99 cents a pound, limit one item, with a $100 purchase.

Someone needs to hire a proofreader! I'm sure the store will post notices at the meat counter that say Oops! We goofed! Big time!

Is it you have to buy $100 worth of it at the special price to get the price, or you only get the price if you buy other stuff worth $100?

Because $100 worth of $0.19/LB meat is a looooooooooootttt of meat.

I'm guessing either: 1) The owner used to drive a BMW and kept the same plate when they switched to a Mercedes. B) The owner has an odd sense of humor. Perhaps they're making fun of BMW owners who want to advertise to the world that they have a BMW through personalized plates.

The fact that it's got that 1 on the end of it reminds me of a guy I knew in high school. He had a Ford F250 with the license plate "TRUCK2". That was his third choice. TRUCK and TRUCK1 were already taken.
