Which would be only slightly less ridiculous than THIS protest song:
|I’ll give you a hint!|
There were some cool parts, such as large puppets and a skeleton marching band.
The most interesting part was realizing I wasn’t the only person who was there mostly for shits and giggles. As the march wound past the Library of Congress some lone not protester who I suppose is out there every Saturday morning accosted the puppeteers, screaming about how the environment was being trashed we were stupidly concerning ourselves with puppets. A guy near me, after a moment said “you know, he kind of has a point.” I turned to him and said “I’m just happy to have an excuse to be out in D.C. with a puppet!” He smiled at me and we carried on with the rally.
It’s not like the bigger issues weren’t being discussed. At one point I came across this pair of people discussing fracking … with their puppets! It was pretty awesome and cute.
Of course, this was a political rally at its core so one couldn’t expect to not see political puppetry.
|From the Big|
|To the small.|
|And even human sized.|
But it wasn’t all sunshine and felt. Sadly, even an event like this can have its casualties.
