The Worst Damn Parade in the Land

Reader and Twitter follower @AlKards sent us a link to the Westerville, Ohio (natch) 2011 4th of July parade where they had a "Tribute to Tressel" float.  Let's take a look, shall we?...

Like the t-shirt we "discussed" yesterday, they have a bunch of stats on there that are going to be, shall we say, "incorrect" as soon as the NCAA is done investigating.

And I can only hope Westerville's tax dollars didn't go into putting that awesome display on.

But my absolute favorite part of the " tribute" are the two riding lawn mowers at the end.  You know, because what's a parade without motorized yard care equipment?

ED. NOTE: Props to The Buckeye Battle Cry for their sense of humor and twitter response to the lawn mower comment: Dude, we already burned the couches... wasn't much left to sit on.

The citizens of Westerville would like to thank the fine folks at Westerville Terrific Tattoos Parlor for sponsoring their 4th of July parade!

Do these people really not understand what is coming? Or do they just not care?

I live in Westerville. It's a mixture of the two. They are oblivious to just how bad this could be for the next decade and they don't care because they remember watching all the games and "you can't take that away from me". It's inane and really annoying.

Westerville was the scene for the movie from the 80's "Heathers" with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. Maybe they should remake it....

or was it Westerberg...

Don't forget the "everyone in college football is doing this."
I've heard that so many times recently from idiots here that I laugh.

@BAH - ask them if that's the excuse they give when the cop pulls them over for speeding, and if so, how it's worked out for them.
