While at the park, I stumbled upon a subculture so bizarre/interesting/disturbing that it caused me to be late for my trip to the zoo. The only thing that tops this one is a Renaissance Festival. It's a Revolutionary War re-inactment. The whole "encampment" was packing up after a long weekend of fake shooting each other but I had to wander around and ask some questions.
Are there set hours for the "battles"? Do you get a lunch break? Late at night, are there sneak attacks or do the colonists and the Brits sit around a campfire drinking beers together? Is that nose ring a clip on? Does the old guy in the puffy shirt take off his Steelers ball cap during the fight???
