Ugh, Our Stolen Arrow

Written on October 25, 2008 by mimecine

Our red neon arrow hanging outside the door of our store got … stolen tonight.  It’s nothing you just do like that – first, you’d want to turn the electricity off, neon lights up at thousands of volts so getting stung by the voltage really hurts. It even hurts your feelings, it’s that kind of voltage. Secondly, you would need a ladder to get up there. And a knife/snipper to get it off. So someone dedicated it must have been…


Our neighbor restaurant had a camera literally 2 feet from the arrow, AND YOU GOT FILMED! Actually, the officer who was here saw you, we haven’t yet…  But we will get a nice cd with the film of you on sunday or monday.

    Ack, indeed. I work around the corner and I was just wondering how long the arrow sign had been missing. That sucks.

    And an update: We mounted a green “swirl” temporarily the day after the theft, but yesterday when I put up a plaque next to the neon, I swept it with my ladder and cracked the neon, so now it really looks sad… All in my own making. Merde, or Merdre as Alfred Jarry would have spelled it.

    “you are not here”
    Your next arrow should be like Pompidou’s neon arrow. So big it’s unstealable.

    Heh:) Well we got a new arrow but the old transformer is a bit too weak so I’m trying to plug in a stronger one.
