O…Kay.

Granted, it’s for a good cause, but it’s… peculiar.

…Brooklyn cab driver L.G. Khambache Sherpa hopes New Yorkers will join him in doing just that – crawling on hands and knees with him during his ongoing 15-mile, six-day”Crawl-a-thon” from Inwood to Ground Zero.

Sherpa says the pain is all worth it if he fulfills his goal: raising cash for tsunami victims in Asia and 9/11 emergency workers at Ground Zero – as well as to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first scaling of MountEverest.

“Hopefully, some people will come join this mission and crawl with me – not only physically, but spiritually also.”

“I thought he was weird,” said Alfredo Garcia, 63, of Inwood. “But he’s
doing it for a good cause. I like the idea.”

Be sure to check out the photo of him in his crawling costume…

    Is it just me, or does anyone else see the irony of having a cab driver named Sherpa?

    So, how do you drive a taxi while crawling?

    Maybe you just jump on the taxi driver’s back, but that sounds like an awfully slow way to get someplace.
