Call me a philistine if you want, but one of my favorite chapters from Moby Dick is "Cistern and Buckets". It's one of the last times you hear about Queeequeg in the book, and he's shining and badass. It's the part that cemented him as my favorite character in the book, and one of my favorite characters in all of storytelling.
There's only a few days left of Fun-a-day Boston. Come February I will start scanning, photographing, and posting all my Queequegs. Many are just too big or funny-shaped for me to bother right now.
