A Simple Page of Strangers
Quite simply, things have gotten very stupid and strange at the park. And if one more person comes up to me and says “I know I asked to be on your site, but could you take me off now?” I’m going to throw them the fuck out of the whole goddamned park!

Girls & Men of the Square, Amazing Strangers
