Moshe Aron kestenbaum from Williamsburg NY says:
I was dancing my ass off at the parade, It was an unforgettable experience, the floats and stuff There was this geezer standing behind me who got a bit annoying hanging around with his air-pressurized horn and tooting it just behind me . The guy was lucky not to blow his horn in my ass next to me I would have shoved that damned horn up his rectal department.
