Quick quiz: This traditional folk festival in Colombia….

  • Commemorates the native people’s struggle for freedom
  • Is nearly 300 years old
  • Features colorful horseback choreography
  • Is a majestic tribute to Marge Simpson

Wait a minute, Blog Guy! If it’s 300 years old, how could it have anything to do with a 20th century cartoon character? Do you get my point?

I do indeed. Thanks for setting me straight, stranger.

And readers, please come back tomorrow for photos from the 200th anniversary of Seattle’s Betty and Veronica Festival…

Shra, I’ve been in Afghanistan since the beginning of September. All I have see is “Blueberries” and the fashion models (occasionally he has a decent female model shot) here on Blog Guy’s site.

Ok, maybe that’s a bit of hyperbole, but not too far off. Anyway, Lois, even if she is just a cartoon woman with only 4 fingers per hand, is one hot mama. Any more detail than that, and Blog Guy couldn’t post, as I know this is a family oriented site…
