Oh... my... God...

Do parades suck or is it just me? I mean, you sit there watching giant paper mache craft project after giant paper mache craft project go by, with people you don't know waving at you while chucking candy at the nearest new-born, who just wants to lay in their nice warm crib and not get pelted with jolly ranchers. Usually this happens when it's either royally frickin' cold, or royally frickin' hot. Have you ever heard of a parade happening in either April or early October? Me neither.

Yet my wife is busy jumping up and down watching the Thanksgiving "Insert Sponser Here" Parade on NBC, while I'm here listening to Katie Couric and Matt Lauer drone on more uninterestingly than usual about the history of each float. There was also a musical number celebrating Bollywood with a song called "Shakalaka, Baby." Yeah, it was just as bad as you might think.

I'm ready for summer now.

Loved them as a kid but cant stand them now. They are really stupid and embarrassing to watch. Lame. I always say to myself they dont have anything new in the parades in the last 200 - 300 years lol..and the people that perform in them i feel they just get the lowest denominator cause Ive never heard of them and they all suck. Starting to hate holidays.

Actually, yeah - the town I grew up in was/is famous for their "Mule Day" parade in early April - 200,000+ people show up in this town of 30,000 every spring for the parade.  It's actually pretty nice - bring a blanket and stretch out in one of the yards of the antibellum homes that are along the parade route.  Only problem is, as the name implies, there are a lot of mules/horses/donkeys and all the mess that goes along with that.

NEver understood the facination with parades. Even as a kid I thought they were the most boring "event" for a crowd to gather.

Someone needs to take WBS to Fantasy Fest in Key West.  It not your  average parade to say the least.

Growing up, my cousins lived on the other side of the Rose Parade route.  Since I had to wait until the damn thing was over before I could go play with them I learned to hate parades at a very early age.
