A Car With a Dead Body in It Has Been Sitting on Capitol Hill For "At Least" Twelve Hours

The car may have been there at least 12 hours, but that doesn't mean the body has. RIP.

What the fuck

I wonder if they got a parking ticket while they were dead.

There's a new thrift shop on Capitol Hill?

Condolescences to family and friends of the deceased person. And please, it's not a Dead Body. Its a deceased Person or dead Person. Because would you say there was a live body found in a car? No. You'd say Person.

Did Ansel report the "no plates" claim without looking into the tinted rear windshield, where in plain view a dealer plate might be posted? Because it's causing a lot of ridiculous speculation.

@4: Out of the Closest has been open for awhile now. Related: You know that Lifelong has moved into the space that Red Light used to be in?

Stinkbug dear, I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't been on Capitol Hill in ages.

Anyone is allowed to.
No visa, no special requirements.
Go. Smile. Enjoy.

caution&daring dear, the fault is entirely my own - I'm far too fat and lazy for such an undertaking, and I hate looking for parking. However, I am very much looking forward to the light rail opening, so that I can have some stately adventures in the old neighborhood.

@4/8/10, I love you. I love you the way Australians love the royal family ---- i.e. I think everything about you is wonderful, but you have nothing to fear from me. Thank you for making SLOG so much more fun.

@11: I'm right there with you. Catalina is role model to us all.

So there's a dead body in plain view literally on the same block as The Stranger's offices and they won't notice until the SPD seals the area off.

There's a good joke here, but I'm too drunk and disinterested to craft it.

Just as ignorance of the law is no excuse, neither is inability to live.

If the "dead body" had been white, would "b-o-d-y" have been spelled more like "p-e-r-s-o-n" instead?

@15: That has got to be the single most brainlessly obnoxious thing anyone's ever said in the comments of a Stranger article, ever.

@13

The joke is that you said "literal on the same block" when their office is almost a block and a half away. Come to think about it, it's still not that funny.

@15, I appreciated your comment.

@6: Ridiculous speculation is what The Stranger does now.

@10: How does a mannequin get fat? What does a mannequin eat? Is it like that movie "Mannequin?"

@15: I doubt it. "Dead Body" seems to be the AP trend, not "Dead Person." A valiant attempt at race baiting, if not a little over the top. Keep practicing!

"It's art"

two block radius!

I wonder if the car will be on sale after the investigation is over.

ISTM "person" is conventionally a live one, "body" a dead one. "Dead body" is redundant, no?
