A piece of cardboard stuck under a cart along the Black Horse Pike at Mays Landing caught my eye this morning.
Let me explain to you before I need help with an explanation.
As I was driving to work, I saw an Acme cart on the side right next to Pike’s shoulder. It’s okay, there are shopping carts there all the time. However, this cart had a piece of cardboard stuck underneath and I saw something written on it.
Puzzled, I made two U-turns and stopped at the cart to see what was written.
It reads: “Do you even know why you are shooting me” followed by “Happy Halloween”, something that looks like “Bourne Identity”, “ha ha” and maybe a rough drawing of a device. Photo.
Now I’m not quite sure what that means. I never saw “The Bourne Identity” from start to finish, but a google search for this quote did not directly reveal that it was from this movie. And I don’t know what Halloween has to do with it.
And, beyond that, why was it written on a piece of cardboard that was stuck under a cart that was by the side of the road? No one would ever see it (except me, obviously). And it wasn’t like the box had accidentally got stuck in it – it was rather securely attached to the cart.
Ever since I took this photo this morning, I keep thinking that there was a camera hidden in the woods to see if anyone would actually stop to read the sign. I mean, it seems possible. I imagine.
And I must stress that this is not the first time that I have come across cryptic and curious notes on the side of a road. Just last year a small plug stapled to a post on the promenade Also made me stop and do some rude investigative work.
Anyway, if you can shed some light on this shopping cart note for me, I’d love to hear from you.
