fire hydrant

Sometimes the most mundane things can make you chuckle.  At the corner of Oxford and Wendell streets in Cambridge sits a fire hydrant. More appropriately, the poor thing looks rather buried.  It’s a funny thing how our perception of accepted images works.  Enough of the connections are exposed so as to be a fully functional hydrant, but because it’s set a little further down in the pavement it carries a comical look of someone stuck in the mud.
