A local artist, Frederick Tryer, known for his commentary on romance (or lack thereof) in the bar-drenched world of North Brooklyn has perhaps taken his latest performance piece too far. Although his aim was to be awakened by the person whose kiss awoke him first, Tryer has yet to open his eyes since falling to sleep yesterday.

His assistant, Molly Akkolite, a 21-year-old majoring in studio arts at an unknown college, commented, “To be honest, I can’t tell if this is part of his performance or he’s genuinely blacked out from all the Rohypnol he took to ensure only the strongest kiss could rouse him.”

The Burning Bush speculates that this is actually Tryer’s attempt to profess his love for Akkolite, who he’s simply waiting for to kiss him–and that, once she does, he will jump to his feet and cry, “It’s been you I’ve been waiting for all along.” It wouldn’t be out of the realm of soap opera possibility in this town. In the meantime, someone might want to call an ambulance for him (or just take another picture for Instagram).
