Who was that masked man?

1 August 2012

Yes, that is indeed a guy in a lucha libre outfit in a convenience store and an ostrich. And, of course this happened in Mexico City… you know, the place Salvador Dali once said was too surreal for him.

No one seems to know why, but the luchador (and ostrich) ran amok in a unnamed Mexico City convenience store, but the owners are reluctant to press charges, fearing the big guy (whether human or avian isn’t clear) might come back to do some real damage.

    I see that Mazatlan is no longer the sleepy tourist town… though the event could almost have been staged by Soriana.

    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — In the capital of one of the world’s most dangerous countries, a hooded, masked man jumped out of a car on an assault mission.

    His target: a crumbling wall on a garbage-strewn corner. With his accomplice acting as lookout, the man plastered a giant black-and-white reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” — wielding a pink pistol. In minutes he was gone.

    In a country where just being on the street at a certain time of the evening is enough to get shot at, it takes a lot of guts just to keep smiling.

      The event to which Charles refers to was just some guys setting fire to a stolen car abandoned at a parking lot of a large shopping complex that has a Soriana store as an anchor. That there was ammunition in the car seems to be responsible for early reports of a “car bombing” incident. And, it happened quite a ways from the “tourist zone” as some reports had it, and at an hour when the stores were closed.

      I doubt it had anything to do with Soriana in particular… I used to live just around the corner from where this happened: it’s a large parking lot without security cameras … and has been a convenient place for people to abandon stolen vehicles. At least, unlike the last one that made national news, whoever left the car didn’t also leave a couple of headless corpses sitting in the back seat.
