What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Definite Madison character: Thong Cape Scooter Man

Not sure how long he's been doing his thing, but I saw him on and around Sherman Ave a few times last year.

Don't expect to find young characters. You don't get to be a character (or have a bunch of good stories) without a certain amount of mileage, IMO.

Sheesh Jason! I welcome you to visit any of Madison's local bicycle shops and ask to speak with the owner. BOOM! Character galore!

A fun fact for Prof. Wagstaff:

The word "bozo" derives from the French slang term "bouseaux" (meaning "hick, peasant, or yokel"). However, bouseaux literally means "cow turds." ("Cow turds the Clown" anybody?)

mel, floyd, pants

tunnel bob? I think not, transcends the category.


Sheppy loiters nearby, unremarked.

Meade, clearly. & his muted band of grumping trolls.

ID-ing characters requires an investment of some time, so ya notice the behavior patterns that otherwise don't stand out. e.g., keedo, xtopher. Not everyone juggles, wears purple or renames themselves loon. Or walks around in chainmail and asuit of armor. Some just run for office & hope no one notices.
