Baby Yoda Crushes it as Thanksgiving Balloon:
(There wasn’t one in the parade as far as I know...but certainly it is only a matter of time before the internet demands representation.)
To be completely honest, we did not even watch the broadcast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade on TV. Our kids have always been rather uninterested in this New York tradition.
However, it was really, really windy this morning, so I did spend a good bit of time reading online about the various giant character balloon accidents that have happened over the many decades of the parade’s history. While there was only one incident serious enough to put someone into a coma- the Cat In The Hat was the offender- there have been many more mishaps that resulted in damage to streetlights, lost bystander teeth, damaged character dignity, and general panic and distress.
The parade proceeded today despite the winds, but I heard that they held the balloons very close to the ground, practically on top of their armies of handlers.
Certainly Baby Yoda would never hurt the rope holders or specatators, would he?
Late and very hurried napkin, (had to spend much of the day making the whole kitchen sticky with sweet potatoes) but Happy Thanksgiving nonetheless!
And, last but certainly not least, our younger son deserves the concept credit- I was just going to draw baby Yoda riding a wild turkey....much less appropriate!
