Who is Amazing Larry? That question has baffled us for years. All we know for sure is that he was once on the shortlist of candidates for vice president. Before that he had a brief but memorable cameo in 1985's Pee-wee's Big Adventure:
Since then? Nothing. Aside from his abbreviated foray into politics and one moment of unequivocal greatness, we have very little knowledge of this enigmatic, yet clearly Amazing, man.
At roughly 5:45 PM I spotted a man I believe to be Amazing Larry standing outside our front window. I can report to you that Amazing Larry is alive and currently working for a West Lafayette tree service. He spent most of July 25th stripping our oaks and maples of their foliage and sucking down what appeared to be Basic Filters. Oh, he's a bit leaner in 2011 and his Mohawk is a little worse for wear, but that often happens when you ditch the pampered glitz of Hollywood for a life of manual labor.
Luckily, I had the presence of mind to snap a quick photo. Moments later, as in decades past, he was gone. Where and when he will turn up next is anyone's guess.
