Holy Grail, Batman!

I got to work this morning, sat down, turned on my computer. The co-worker in the adjacent office came up and said, “Do you want this? It’s from 2006,” as he handed me a pristine, never folded, never mangled copy of Le Krewe D’Etat’s parade bulletin. It’s the one from after the storm with the theme “D’Olympics D’Etat” presented by the “Dictator’s Emergency Management Agency,” or DEMA. Here’ the conversation:

“Dude, you shouldn’t have given it to me, it’s the Holy Grail.”
“It’s been sitting right there. What do you mean?”
“I looked on eBay for one. There was one from 2007, I e-mailed the guy to see if he had a 2006. He didn’t and didn’t know where to get one.”
“eBay? Jesus, give it back.”

I could not find my copy, nor Nola hers, when we were posting about the parades this year. So in coming days as I warm up the scanner we’ll have visions of floats depicting D’Olympic events like “Refrigerator Hurling,” “Looter Shooting,” “Insurance Adjuster Wrestling” and “Breach Volleyball.”
