Fleet-Week-2006-fd0031.jpg

It’s that time of year again folks! Fleet Week kicks into high gear this weekend but tomorrow the first runs of the Blue Angels start over our fair city. Always a sphincter clenching event at the best of times. I work in a high rise in the financial district and there’s nothing that says FUN to me than a bunch of high powered fighter jets prancing around over the city like frat boys with a few too many beers in em.

The main festivities kick off on Saturday with the parade of ships and all the trimmings Fleet Week tends to bring with it. I personally will be holed up at the Porn Palace enjoying Arse Elektronika with our friends from Vienna and avoiding the crowds, although I’m guessing this event won’t be lacking in people.

    Resorting to the “drunken frat boys” stereotype is trite and demeaning. Not all fraternity members behave badly nor is interest in things-that-go-boom limited to them: see Burning Man.

    No, not all frat boys behave badly. That’s why I said “drunken” frat boys which in my experience do behave badly and most of the ones I know are damn proud of it. And we make just as much fun of the Burning Man crowd. Damn dirty hippies they are.
