April Fools' Parade Full Of Hot Air
Media prankster Joey Skaggs
Wednesday, March 24, 2010 17:20 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Famed media prankster Joey Skaggs is highlighting everyone and everything thats full of hot air.
On April 1, his 25th Annual April Fools Day Parade in New York will honor the weird and stupid stuff that made this past year fun for fools.
Given the flighty economy, the theme is Up, Up And Away, with the parade being led by a Ben Bernanke doppelganger.
The U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman will be followed by other foolish impersonators including Sarah Palin, Richard and Mayumi Heene with their homemade balloon float, and Tiger Woods swinging his club.
To symbolize the up-in-the-air economy, 10,000 helium balloons each with a $1 bill attached will be released along the route.
Anyone can join the procession, and Skaggs says theyre still looking for a posse of hookers to follow their Tiger Woods.
After 25 years organizing the crazy parade, Skaggs favorite moment is the time a President Bush impersonator was chased down the street by an angry lynch mob.
