Potcake Says XIV

Potcake is an itinerant street vendor in Nassau named Tommy. He has a shopping cart loaded with hubcaps that he finds on the street and he re-sells to motorists. He also fancies himself as a street philosopher, and makes cardboard signs with epigrams that he posts on the back of his mobile business.

Yesterday, the sign on the back of his shopping cart said:

  • "Potcake Says: What you cryin' for ?"

He calls himself Potcake, because potcakes are the wild dogs that run around Nassau since the seventeenth century. They are called Royal Bahamian Potcakes because of their heritage. They started out as terriers that came on the pirate and other ships, and mixed with every single canine species ever to come to the tropics, until their gene pool stabilised and they are somewhat recognised as a breed.

I see by the above pic (snapped while going by in a car), that Potcake has acquired a potcake, sleeping peacefully nearby. He always has a flock of pigeons around him as well.

For a while Potcake was quite nasty and sometimes xenophobic. I haven't put a Potcake Says update since March.

I have noticed that he has touched on male impotence. I previously noted that he had a sign up about Viagra, and about a month ago, he had a sign that said:

  • "Potcake Says: Man who cannot make love sleeps alone."
