Where Do They Get These People?

St Patrick's Parade Composite

Participants in last weekend's St. Patrick's Day merriment. I have no idea where some of these people materialize from. Kilts and tats with a half-painted face? Sponge Bob (the dumbest cartoon show ever) with very feminine legs? A tuba player with a vague resemblance to Gumby? I don't know. It's probably a good thing that people get to act out this way once in a while.

By the way, yesterday's post was meant to be ironic, you know, cross on a beer drinking shirt, Christian clowns. Most people seemed to take it at face value. I think I went right through ironic and landed at obscure.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day itself and is supposed to have the Thursday Arch Series. How to handle that? You will have to come back and find out.

We're bringing out some muscle today on Downtown St. Louis 365.

Hummm je sais pas que bob l'éponge avait d'aussi jolie jambe, maintenant je regarderais ces aventures. Belle brochette de portraits, vivement le carnaval à Evry

The arch will be green I imagine. These are a bit strange and I think that's a Farquharson tartan.

Do you remember the movie King of Hearts?

I love all three!
I kinda wonder whether Bob the sponge wasn't YOU (in which case your son would have taken the pic) - those beautiful legs... :-)))

We count on you to bring us the crazy as all get out, the weird, the hilarious, the not to be believed... from the Lou. Keep at it. BTW, I'm envious of SB's legs. THere ain't no justice.

Ah, the wearing of the green!

An Irish Prayer

May those who love us, love us;
and those who don't love us,
may God turn their hearts;
and if He doesn't turn their hearts,
may he turn their ankles
so we'll know them by their limping.
