Why didn't they just call it Carnival? It wouldn't sound as tacky; at least.

Then again... if a hotty with a bright smile carries me off on a vine, I'll be out of everyone's way :P

More trouble than I can handle?? That's a chance I'd have to take :P
Heehee.

Definately "don't feed/tempt the monkies. ." I will *cough* abstain from further blog talk about bananas.

Isn't it Ironic though, that the news of this festival is so close to a chat about Gay men being "promiscuous?" Jungles being a symbol of animalistic lust, passion, ya ya ya.
