So we were just walking through Downtown Miami, scanning the sidewalk for cigarette butts when.... AAH ANIMAL LEG!
It was loosely wrapped in paper right outside the front entrance of this construction site on Northwest 3rd Street, just a block from the Miami Police headquarters.
The rule of the Internet is you don't hit your readers with big, high-res photos of animal leg without warning them first. So... you ready for animal leg?
Now let's move on to another page so you don't have to stare at animal leg while you read the rest of this post.
At first, we thought it was a dog leg. For confirmation, we called our resident weird-shit inspector, animal activist Richard "Kudo" Couto-- last seen finding a human skull near Hialeah -- who drove to the site, took the photo that just seared your eyeballs, and reported back that it was a baby goat leg. Explains the hoof.
We were thinking a Santeria practitioner might be pissed at whoever was in charge of the construction site. We asked Santeria priest Carlos Valdes for insight. He told us that if this baby goat leg was the work of a Santeria practitioner, it was not necessarily left in anger: "It could be a worker doing that to get a promotion."
So there you (maybe) have it. It's a baby goat leg of career ambition.
Miami, don't ever change.
