Neighborhood watch

There was an orange and black neighborhood watch sticker on on the window next to the back door, in the laundry room of the house I grew up in.  It featured the silhouette of some creepy guy with a popped collar and a fedora for some reason (gotta look out for those Baby Boomers, they’ll git’chya!).  I thought it was just a limited issue thing, but then I saw this outside one of my favorite ramen restaurants (Daikokuya in Little Tokyo), and it made me wonder if this image was more highly distributed, and therefore better-known than I had previously thought.

Regardless, it was nice to see a familiar face 🙂

This guy is everywhere!  A quick Google search for ‘neighborhood watch’ and this guy pops up all over the damn place (although occasionally he seems to be wearing a mask, and strongly resembles Homestar Runner).
