Angry Man Throws My Props While Performing; He Did it For the Children.

I was performing at Union Square, I had a good crowd, it was close to when I was stopping. A man without communicating, starts kicking my props. He doesn’t stop, and then throws my kart. I tell him to stop. The crowd starts booing. He communicates, “Then put on some pants, there are children out here.” Well I start putting on my shorts, but still he gives my kart one final blow. That pissed me off, so instead of getting angry. I shout, “I love you, I love you, give me a hug”, he walks away. I end the show, clean my props, fix the dent he made on my kart.

Later, he comes back and tries to offer me a puff of his joint, I say no thank you and then he communicates in a calm way that he’s on the crypts, and he’ll kill me if I wear my speedo. There are children out here.

The second video is taken by Normal Bob Smith, who documents all interesting and weird activity that happens at Union Square.


After much thinking about yesterdays episode, yes the guy made me angry, by kicking my kart for no reason. But I’m also aware that every human being needs love, and if I could redo this scenario, I would of told everybody to give him love instead of booing him. Booing, probably made him kick my kart a second time. That’s my theory. I appreciate everybodies feedback and support.  And I will probably follow his wishes not to wear a speedo.  Union Square is a great place to express freedom but it is also a community of people and for now I will respect his wishes unless he gives me more grief.
