I think it’s funny that most hitchhikers look like folks I’d rather not share a ride with. In that way it seems like an evolutionary dead end. By the way, doesn’t it seem that crust punks are really over represented among people trying to thumb a ride?
Sometimes I see a crazy looking hitchhiker with a giant backpack and think that it’s completely full of either severed heads or pudding cups; because it couldn’t possibly be anything else. Maybe his whole life is in that backpack, you might say. I would agree %100: Severed heads or pudding cups.
