I pay a man to recreate the evening news with toy soldiers and Hot Wheels

This Saturday we met a guy standing on the Haight St. sidewalk behind a hollowed out TV. Next to him a can read "INSERT $1 TO ACTIVATE." I put in a dollar, and he began a frenetic performance. He recreated the evening news using toy soldiers, Hot Wheels, scenery looped onto rollers, and countless horrible puns (Condaleeza Rice = bag of rice, Dick Cheney = chain). It was easily the best dollar I spent that day.
