wide berth advised

fell in love with this passage from page 93 of david foster wallace's massive tome infinite jest:

"It's a herd of feral hamsters, a major herd, thundering across the yellow plains...With respect to a herd of this size, please exercise common sense. Feral hamsters are not pets. They mean business. Wide berth advised. Carry nothing even remotely vegetablish if in the path of a feral herd. If in the path of such a herd, move quickly and calmly in a direction perpendicular to their own."

this is how i imagine them:

zoe jong at burning man
