July 2003. A bunch of rainbows, an overcast day, and hundreds of shirtless men.

Trust Jesus. Interesting idea. But let's say I'm playing poker against Jesus. He bets big. Is he bluffing? He shouldn't be, since he's all honest and such. But c'mon, he must have some powers or something, so he's probably pretty good anyway. Should I just fold? Why is he doing that 'big arms' thing over the table? Does he have a wild card? Can he see my hand? These thoughts kept my brain occupied for...seconds, before a shiny object in the distance distracted me.

A number of gay-themed shows also had floats, including Will & Grace, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and, of course, Alf.

I hear they like rainbows.

Believe it or not, they were being chased by a bear on a tricycle. Yeah, I wouldn't believe that either.

Tropical Wonderwoman? Sure, we got that.

Does that mean I have to leave this piece of lettuce stuck in my teeth? Cuz damn, it's tickling my gums.

God, meet the gays. Gays, here's a wooden cross. Let the awkwardness begin.

Frank (waving, lavendar shirt) wasn't one to make a fuss, but he didn't think the two racoons going at it on their rainbow flag was an appropriate part of the parade.

Yes, I'm sure it is. But thinking that a pinwheel (even one with a rainbow) is cool? Well, I"m not sure anyone can help you with that.

I'm sure these angels were generous souls, but dancing on a float in platform heals while being blinded by your cape is a clear OSHA violation and I'm reporting that shit.

"Halt! Pledge your allegiance to peace and acceptance or my comrade here will run you through with flags! Only $5.99 a piece, by the way."

They have the strangest uniforms of any business I've seen. But the service is excellent.

There's some rhyme about lesbians and motorcycles. Hmm, what was it? Lesbicycles on motorcycles? No. Charlies on Harleys. No, that doesn't make any sense. Oh well, I'm sure it'll come to me.

Captain Ahab might not way to lay...er..I mean slay this mighty beast.

For a man wearing a pink sailors cap, that guy doesn't look very happy.
