Go on, read the rest of the story. You know you want to.
A man walks into a bar. He’s carrying a carpet under his arm. He wraps himself in the carpet, lies on the floor, covers his face and waits for people to step on him. A sign taped to the bar reads: “Step on carpet.”
People step on the carpet — dozens, in fact. The more people who step on the carpet, particularly if they are women in heels, the happier the man is. Some are timid, others are audacious. Some dance on the man. Some step on him while ordering their drinks, completely unaware that a live body is underfoot…

The rest of the story was exactly what I expected from the intro. Good for him, I guess.
It was a totally unexpected weird story for me. I thought, well, I don't want to ruin the ending for anyone else but I was expecting something completely different from what I found. Delightful story though.
From the excerpt, I was expecting a parody on the American Voter. Possibly that is his "deep" story ?
I was sure the guy in the carpet was gonna turn out to be David Vitter...
Saw this already; nice understatement around the fact that this man is not even the only game in town -- Kevin the Carpet running the same racket.
