-> Idling on a 6 foot giraffe (16-inch wheel, semi-custom from Tom -> Miller, he
told me later), he extricated himself from a padlocked -> straight-jacket. While
delivering his vendor's pitch.

I've always known Straight-jacket's and unicycle's go together... just not at
the same time.

Black pants, white ruffled shirt - pretty ordinary, considering. (Those of you
that attend this sort of conference know what I mean.)

Maybe he looks like one of these NY area performers:

Will Shaw - Tall, largeish nose, curly red-brown hair with bald spot on top
(sorry Will if you're reading this, those are your defining features!)

Joey Colon (Joey Joey) - short, olive-skinned, black hair, very Italian-looking
(so probably not Italian). Also known for sword-swallowing on a unicycle (I want
a picture for my web page!!!)

The latter, possibly. He was about my height - that's about 5 feet 11 inches or
so with shoes. Thin.

I can't imagine sword-swallowing on a unicycle.
