King Mango Strut is this Sunday

The banana will drop at 2 pm and the parade will begin. Yup, The King Mango Strut is back on Sunday, December 29, for its 32nd year.

This year's Grand Marshal is Rob Ford straight from Toronto. Our celebrity guest is classic jazz artist Joe Donato.  

The lineup includes:

*Miami's Toxic Parks - they may end up selling parks' naming rights to heavy metal bands to display their logos: Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc. 

* Seniors Texting - ATD (at the doctors), BFF (Best friend's funeral) BYOT (Bring your own toilet)

* Kate and William's new baby George

*Anthony Weiner "Sexting" Scandal; aka Carlos Danger

*Sequester: government shutdown

*Horsemeat found in burgers; Ikea recalls meatballs

*The Jibberish hand language interperter  

*Spin the Wheel of Obamacare - watch how you lose your insurance coverage

* The People's Pope may be present a/k/a "Pope Pourri"

* Bullying football players 

It's a full day in Center Grove with a great after party when the Strut is done. Hope to see you there!

So, a notorious crackhead has been named Grand Marshal. And the Grove's movers and shakers wonder why fewer families want to live here?

Oh, Man! Wouldn't you know that the Dolphins' entire season comes down to one game, and it conflicts with the Strut. Ugh!

Swlip,

While the ass-kissers who put on the strut will bring the crazy Mayor of Toronto down, they will not allow anyone to make fun of Commissioner "Ethics" Sarnoff, or to do any stuff about Tomas Regalado.

Go figure,

Yes, Al. If anyone would get the joke (including himself) the Grand Marshal should be Marc Sarnoff.

That would be funny!

Hey, right on; sounds like a piece of the old, old Grove like many folks came here for way back when!?

It's not, though. We use to be able to make fun of our local politicians. The city now requires a permit in exchange for the parade being censored (i.e. no making fun of Sarnoff). Our once irreverent beautiful parade has been taken over by the Grove Mafia, which is run by Sarnoff. Very sad!

Sarnoff is a sad miserable wussy, leave him alone.

There's so many "Sarnoff" ideas for the "real" strut. Check it out. From a toxic dump at his very expensive dog park across the street from his house to the rape and pillage of our waterfront, be assured that there will be no mention of Sarnoff in the parade that use to belong to us, the people of the Grove, the Banana Republic. Sorry, but all you have now is a commercial venue. Have fun. Drink lots. Support the businesses downtown. But don't think for a minute that you are at the real "Mango Strut"! Our loss is a commercial gain. The irony is apparent to anyone that remembers how it use to be. As Marie Antoinette would say, "Screw you, its my parade now!"
