Street scene in Covent Garden, London in August
I suppose this chap is a street performer - though some might say there is minimal performance to sitting on a cleverly hidden stand and supping a pint of the amber nectar. I beg to differ - the stress of being very much on show to the general public must be exhausting, especially when your movements are limited. I think he may as well be handcuffed to a bench. Clever though.

Until you figure it out and then you think "how much does he make on a good day?" or " does he gain fulfillment at work?" or "how long does it take to clean the gold paint out of his hairline or ear holes at night?" or "is he safe?" then like everyone in Covent Garden you bimble off and get distracted by 1,000 other eye-catching sights and consign him to obscurity again.
