Oh Bay to Breakers – You So Crazy, Your New Costume Contest is, I Don’t Know, So Zany!

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I don’t know, I’m not sure how to react to the new attitude coming from the Bay to Breakers Civic event.

I’m used to hearing and reading edicts direct from that gay-hating Colorado billionaire who calls the shots at B2B but I haven’t heard as much of the vitriol lately.

Actually, I kind of feel sorry for them now. Not so sorry that I won’t mess with their logo…

…but I’m just so used to hearing about the latest crackdown on this and this and this and this and zero tolerance and you’ll be arrested and whathaveyou.

Anyway, they have a zany, wild costume contest planned, or something.

I still have hope for riot-geared cops and hired thugs enforcing the rules but, well, I don’t know, now.

Anyway, let’s play it straight, for now. All the deets:
