One of the wonderful parts of living where I do is the fact that, during my commute each day, I pass what seems to be an abandoned Mystery Machine (as seen above) outside of the potato chip factory.  It’s one of those moments that is weirdly enjoyable in its randomness, and reminds me that even the most mundane setting can have elements of fantasy in it, making me think of a middle-aged Freddy making Doritos all day, then slogging home to a fiftyish Daphne who is addicated to diet pills and secretly having an affair with Velma.  Not all real-life cartoons would be quite so depressing, though, as there’s also the option of visiting Mad King Ludwig’s Castle Neuschwanstein, the inspiration for Snow White’s Castle, or perhaps the real-life Smurf Forest, which is just outside Jersey City, leading us to today’s hand-painted query…
