World's Smallest Woman

I didn't post yesterday because of a little known condition called 'Posting Paralysis.' It's the blogger equivalent to 'Writer's Block.' How do I thoughtfully, sensitively, comically post about the world's smallest woman on display in a box at the San Gennaro Fair in Little Italy?

A day later and after much head scratching, my commentary will still suck. Just know for the record that I don't condone this however I have fulfilled my duties as your investigative blogger.

The World's Smallest Woman sign is on the left. The woman on the right is in no way related to her.


This is Educational.


Are all cultural exhibits supposed to make us feel sad and uncomfortable? You may recall my friend Cameron who has found himself in poopier situations.


There's her master, husband, supervisor, soulmate, pimp, I have no idea...collecting $1 from adults and .50 cents from children for the educational, cultural exhibit.


Doesn't she look happy with her little amenities...chair, TV, picture frames, and a smiling Dan on her right?


Oh, there we go! Thumbs up! That's what I was thinking...Thumps Up! Way Up and Up and Up!!



After viewing this entry I feel dirty. And NOT in the good way.

I just want to know what the "$10,000 REWARD if not ALIVE & in PERSON" is for (4th photo.) Is that a bounty on her life?

No way! I was going to post on this, Jonah didn't tell you about the hour I stood there, clinging a sweaty dollar in my hand debating the moral questions surrounding such an event?

In the end I snapped the pix of the signs and left.

I can't believe Cameron still wears flip flops. What a brave, brave man.

Hey, Chelsea. Chelsea! Found you again.


I don't think Andrea'll mind. Just in case, I'll keep it short and stumpy.

Andrea: I am so sorry. Dennis' whole thing is that he finds comments I put on other people's blogs, and then he writes letters to me there. It's sort of like having an entourage all up in the comment "club".

Or stalking. It's also like stalking.

You need to be afraid...and stop whatever you did/do to get yourself a stalker! If you're physically being stalked you just move into a hotel but what's the equivalent action online??!! I'm free to brainstorm.
