"(Some) Lawyers Are Pigs" According To Lunatic

Everyday around 5pm, I drive past the corner of South Lamar and Barton Springs Road, where I see this pink figure:

What on Earth is this man doing in a pink suit, waving to people, flagging down cars, yelling things in the street and manically waving his sign?

Ahh, of course. Constructive criticism.

His name is Eric A. Anderson, and over the past 20 years he has dressed up as a vampire, a chicken, a Revolutionary War patriot, a judge, and a pirate to preach the word about lawyers. He's even spent time outside the Austin City Council meetings in a cockroach suit waving a sign that says, "Warning. This courthouse is infested with lawyers." But alas, I've only witnessed the pig.

What's his problem with lawyers? "They can sit at their desk for three hours and take a nap, and they can charge you for three hours of billable work, and you cannot prove whether they worked three hours or have taken a nap," he says. Sounds like somebody thinks they were overbilled.

He's doing an excellent job of Keeping Austin Stark Raving Mad.
