Christmas is over, but we still have characters up on the housetop. No reindeer pausing. Just a man fleeing police sirens. After the eviction speech in chapter thirteen of Invisible Man, the narrator is forced to make a get away and escapes across rooftops.
A gallon of Liberty Paint to the first reader who can name another classic character who tried to make a getaway in this fashion.
ETA: Can you believe there really are some Liberty Paint stores out there? I retract my earlier offer and award the winner a virtual high-five instead.
