At first I was just checking out a carriage house in a Bloomingdale Alley but then I stumbled upon this sight. Perhaps this could be the craziest caption contest ever? Notice the flamingo there in the bottom left corner as well…

If this inspires any crazy captions I’ll be glad to pick a bonus winner for this week.
