Contest, eh? We meet again, Wade. All right, but I don't see how I can add to such a super sketch. Ohkkkayy. It is a balmy day, and Javert has taken a patrol next to the Spanish Steps. His hat has blown off and is perched over a pidgeon by the steps, so he's sneeeeaaaaaaeeeeking up on it, ready to club the poor bird if he tries to fly away with his hat. He's thrown the gloves over the hat to keep the bird quiet beneath.
A long walk, indeed. 8-D Regarding the gladiator thing, I did google it (I have a limited knowledge of history ) and the most relevant thing I could find was a couple of photos about some random modern gladiators on the steps, so...
Forgive my lame attempt at humor! My reference was for the old Coliseum in Rome and its gladitorial games - and the Russell Crowe/Javert connection with his Oscar-winning performance in the film 'Gladiator'.
Love the way Javert is sort of saying, "Hmmm... hmmm." Maybe you should have a caption 'contest' to explain where his hat and gloves are. Let's see... I say he's pacing outside a milliner's where he's having his hat 'blocked' and brushed to look 'just so'. His gloves are clutched in his left hand. Then again, maybe he's just waiting for the stars to come out... or down the red carpet.
