Turtles disrupt traffic
Here’s one you probably won’t see in most news reports. I only heard it second-hand on the radio during my morning commute. The traffic reporter commented about slow-downs on the upper level of the George Washington Bridge in New York City because folks dressed up like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were doing something or other on the bridge’s pedestrian walkway, and thus all the cars were slowing down to look. He had no idea why the Turtle characters were there, but I blame viral marketing (what we used to call a "publicity stunt" in the old days — in this case, for this Friday’s opening of the TMNT movie).
Oh well, it could be worse — it could be Moomins.
