Happy 2016 my fellow DWMachiners!
Time for some mummery! 🙂
It started with an LGBT group from Phillie’s gayborhood (their word, not mine.)
Traditionally, only men were allowed to march in the parade (dressed as women if such was the theme.)
OMG, Jesus was just doing the mummer’s strut in a theme called ‘beer from heaven’!
I ‘spose it’s appropriate since I think it was monks who made the best beer, trappists or something. Monks made wine, too. So did Jesus, well, sorta.
Hmm, they said no motors/engines are allowed in the parade, and the mummer’s strut is based on a dance called the cakewalk.
Reflection on the Mummer’s Parade- there must be a lot of naked birds now. . …
