Report on Trip to “San Luis”

Minotaur recently returned from a trip to St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America. He continues to believe he traveled to a place called “San Luis.” He provided the following report on his trip today to two Brownie Girl Scouts who approached the compound in an effort to rescue an escaped platypus:

“The airship landed first in Dallas City, state of Texas, United States of America, and all the passengers exited in haste, as if summoned by some powerful wizard. We walked in an enclosed hallway that went directly from the ship to an enormous building filled with many people and shops. In a men’s restroom there, I watched two strong men performing an act of service for another man who was quite a bit older. One of the strong men was firmly holding the older man’s face in the sink and the other was washing the older man’s face vigorously. From what I could overhear, it seems like they were helping him remember where he had put a briefcase full of diamonds.

“After this, I wandered around the building for many hours until I learned that no one was coming to get me to take me to San Luis. Instead, I would need to board another airship that would take me the final leg of my journey. The appointed time for boarding the vessel being quite distant still, I lay down to rest in the first quiet place I could find. Imagine my surprise when I woke up and learned that it was a service animal relief area.

“I then went into a gift shop looking for a clock with hands that run widdershins.”

Trip Report: New York City, Part II

Recently a report of Justice Minotaur and Mr. Cornwall’s spring 2013 tour of New York City was posted on this site. In the interval of time since then, Minotaur and Cornwall have received stinging criticism regarding the photographs posted with the story. The photographs have been described as “banal” and “lame” and “the furthest thing from useful in helping the reader appreciate the beauty and context of the sites visited.” Minotaur has responded by going into a deep depression, not unlike that suffered by canines who have discovered that the life span of a dog is about one-seventh that of a human.

Minotaur, opining that it is “regrettable but necessary that we pander to the immature tastes of those who frequent this blog, trying to bear in mind that we were all once children emotionally and intellectually,” has asked Cornwall to publish a few additional New York City photographs here. Please see below.

This was a drunk hobo who somehow had acquired a tuxedo. Minotaur befriended him and gave him a million dollars cash.

Minotaur and Cornwall shared a cab with this woman, who said her name is Panoply Twig and that she is the CEO of Johnson & Johnson. She said she is a follower of this blog and checks it "about fourteen times a day" and that she will personally kill anyone who speaks critically of the blog.

Trip Report: New York City

Justice Minotaur and Mr. Cornwall visited New York City for four weeks in the spring of 2013, with the latter taking detailed notes on a paper grocery sack from Tamerlane’s Jug & Loaf. Upon Minotaur and Cornwall’s safe return, the notes were accidentally misplaced in the hollow of a fake cane, which Minotaur uses to pretend to be disabled when he wants to use handicapped parking spaces. Fortunately, the notes were discovered in the pretend cane this morning by an aggressive weasel.

On the trip Minotaur and Cornwall visited Central Park,  the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum, Neue Galerie, the Guggenheim, the National Design Museum, Times Square, Liberty Island and Ellis Island, the Museum of Modern Art, Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, the New York Transit Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, the Japan Society, the Manhattan religious edifice of the Mormonite people, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the Bronx Zoo, the 9/11 Memorial, Prospect Park, Coney Island, Battery Park, the Admiral David Farragut gravesite, the New York Botanical Garden, Citi Field, Gantry Plaza Stake Park, Federal Hall, the Grant Memorial, Hamilton Grange, the Green-Wood Cemetery, the African Burial Ground, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the New York Earth Room, Governor’s Island, 5Pointz, BLDG 92, Socrates Sculpture Park, the New York Aquarium, the Old Stone House, the 69th Regiment Armory, the Schomburg Center, the American Stock Exchange Building, the Apollo Theater, the Chester A. Arthur House, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and the New York Public Library. They saw a strange stage performance in which lions and other jungle beasts were imagined to have human traits and to express many of their opinions in song.

Photographs of this deeply moving vacation, tour, and emotional retreat are provided below.

With more than a year having passed since then, the car has probably been repainted or sold for parts, and the offenders will probably get off scot-free. Photograph by Minotaur.
