FOUND by Andrea Marion

I found this sign posted along my road recently. A bike ride up the road revealed 7 more of these signs, each as incoherent as this one. One simply read “Grapes and Coconuts.” Each of the signs were laminated, indicating that this was a well-organized group which meant business. I became worried that whoever was posting these cryptic signs was planning a revolution, probably involving guns, fruit, and angry mobs wearing faux preppy islander clothes. This mystery remains unsolved.

Best Song of the Year

FOUND by Paul Spencer in St. Paul, Minnesota

While waiting in line at the post office I found this post-it note among some debris on the counter where people prepare their packages. A moment later a very, very old Asian man, having just sent a package, came slowly down along the counter. He stopped where the debris was and casually poked at it and moved on. It didn’t occur to me until later that it may have been his note.
