Chef statuary is everywhere

On the streets of Mexico City, a few blocks from the Zocalo, I saw this hip-high figure outside a restaurant. I took a photo because it looked awfully familiar.

And sure enough, there’s a chef’s figure on the counter at Nancy’s Cafe in Rancho Cucamonga, not to mention a life-sized version outside the Local Baker in Upland. They’re almost as prolific as garden gnomes.

    I have a couple of garden gnomes. Maybe I should keep an eye out for a chef statue to keep them company.

    Lovin’ the quote about being cynical. I might have to adopt that as my new motto.

    The ones in Upland/Rancho Cucamonga are named Paul and the Mexico one is named Pablo.

    Maybe this could be a new gig for William Postmus if he dyes his hair black and gets those glasses back on…community service anyone?
