Wicked Pissah? Hahdly

Some sonofabitch tore down the giant orange dinosaur at the Route 1 Miniature Golf and Batting Cages in Saugus, Mass. last week.

Route 1 in Saugus has more kitsch, per capita, than any road in Massachusetts. The orange dinosaur -- along with other unique local features like the fiberglass cows and cacti of the Hilltop Steakhouse and the leaning tower of Prince's Leaning Tower of Pizza -- is an intrinsic part of what makes driving to and fro Boston (especially Logan Airport) what it is. (As drives go, it is what it is.)

Back in the day, I used to work on Route 1 in Saugus (at the long-defunct Strawberries Records & Tapes location next to the surprisingly non-defunct Honey Baked Ham outlet). So trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

If this is another one of those MIT pranks, I'm going to have to track down my buddy Will Hunting from Southie so he can give those pussies a wicked awesome beatdown.

Post title explained heayah.
