What? Where?

 

Since 1884, parade group has challenged things as they are pointing out issues, questioning authority, using sarcasm and humor to  shine a light. Not all the cartoons are well received and become subject of council  meetings occasionally. Comic cowboys sometimes state the obvious and some times ‘the shameful’.

Life becomes so busy, hectic and overwhelming with everything that we try to cram in. Your life needs humor. Laughter is good for the soul. To tie in humor alongside injustices is a good way to spread the awareness. Increased awareness leads to change and at times improvements.

Capital One sez…..

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could use humor to bring about change as opposed to negative hate speech? Of course all of us have had a fill of this over the last five years or lifetime? Why can’t we all just get along or at least learn to appreciate that everyone is entitled to an opinion?

Yet, not all of us want to hear all of your opinions repeatedly on every flipping media outlet known far and wide. I turn on the news when I am ready to digest and sift through the mountain of  it (insert your favorite word here).

Comic Cowboys love you enough to state the obvious. Pushing the envelope  to shake it up.  If you blush when you read it, that’s ok. You have seen worse on  TV during the day. Finally, ask yourself how will you help change the problem?

Who knew that it would actually be sunny after all?  Truly, I had to sit down after all the whining and dining. Mimi needed a martini to sort out cartoons from parade and Springing into Mobile with Comic Cowboys.
