We have been an admirer of the website The 12534 ever since we discovered that this site had the good sense to add Mr. Wonderful’s World to its list of “notable blogs”. Flattery does get you somewhere in these parts. Despite the pleasant ego inflation, it remained a mystery here at 114 Warren as to the identity of the diligent and discerning author of The 12534. Tonight, in the midst of Hudson’s Winter Walk hoopla, a large ginger bread man walked into the Davis Orton Gallery accompanied by a handler.
He claims to be the web author of The 12534. But how are we to know that this is true? The only bit of wit that passed his lips was a retort on spying our platter of ginger snaps, “Oh, I can’t eat any of those, that would be canibalism.”
We were lucky enough to get Mr. Ginger Bread Man to pose with Ms. Wonderful.
