Chicagoans use some weird stuff to hold a parking spot…a creepy little armless mannequin boy anyone?

Today is the last day for Dibs items. The city of Chicago will start picking up anything left out in the street this week.

If you’ve never heard of “Dibs” it’s a Chicago tradition. Once you’ve spent the time to shovel out a parking spot you put something there to save it.

Big Wheels, strollers, chairs, sawhorses…they’ve all been used to claim dibs on a spot.

But there are some much weirder items and I just discovered this Tumblr with pictures of all the wildest things…including that armless mannequin boy.

Good luck going down this fun rabbit hole today!!
