As New Orleans gears up for Mardi Gras Day the festivities have begun, many of the parade floats have already hit the streets, and at least two rather amusing floats featured a particularly hilarious theme mocking the disastrous rollout of Obamacare.
The big day falls on March 4, but the various parades began a week ago continuing from February 15 up to Mardi Gras Day. The next ones are to be held on March 2, 3, and 4.
But already two hilarious anti-Obamacare floats already hit the streets of the Big Easy.
One features a giant Obama head wearing a mask and an old-style doctor’s head mirror, in his hands are giant bags of money. Emblazoned on the head mirror are the words “BUY or DIE.”
Other placards on the float include, “DEATH PANEL,” and “BEND OVER.”
A second entry appears as a store front-like edifice with sayings painted in the windows and on the chimneys. One says “keep your doctor,” another says “keep your plan.” A painting of a woman on a computer sits steaming while her computer screen shows, “try back later.” Another window says, “loading, loading, loading,” while on yet another is written, “user error.” This one also has the words “death panels.”
Opposite the painting of the woman on a computer is an Obama figure holding a giant stickpin and wearing a glitzy top hat and tails, the hat saying “Dr. Prez.” Dr. Prez has a word bubble next to his head saying, “This is gonna hurt” and he holds a voodoo doll that says “patients” on it awaiting Dr. Prez’ giant stickpin.
So here is some rueful, dark Cajun humor for Mardi Gras 2014.
