Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

How many Annabella Lwin look-a-likes are there in the greater New York area? I have a feeling someone’s going to find out on Sunday in Central Park, thanks to this Craigslist call-out for models to pose in a photographic recreation of Edouard Manet’s classic impressionist painting, “Luncheon on the Grass”.

Not that Bow Wow Wow’s 1982 album-cover homage to Manet’s original necessarily has anything to do with this coming weekend. But whoever put up that Craigslist ad included a link to the much-trafficked (and old) post on this blog that compares the before-and-after versions. So, even if just for general reference, I think this new endeavor will look to BWW’s “Go Wild in the Country” for inspiration.

Just for completeness’ sake, here’s the pop-punk imagery, in full-color:

I’d venture out to the Park on Sunday, except I don’t want to crash the party under pervert-like circumstances. Besides, the weather forecast is looking chilly, including possible snowfall in the days prior, making me wonder if it’ll come off at all.
