Sounds fun.

They've sold out (not surprisingly).

I don't get it. at this point it's quite clearly half the country fault that the GOP continues to exist.
Because you can't be this annoying and stay in business unless other people are ignoring the fact that you're annoying cu*tbag.
Clearly half the country shrugs off how awful these people are in the name of getting along meanwhile they insist on being as annoying as possible in the name of not getting along and sticking it to us.
Which means every awful thing they do is actually our fault because we won't remove them from our lives at every level.

You know I sort of considered myself sort of straight.
But I would definitely tap that

Lady, you might let your kids run around downtown at 9:30 at night, but that's on you for being a shiatty parent.  That's not on the drag queens.

That's weird and interesting at the same time.
But now I have to ask why the hell or tampon commercials and maxi pad commercials always done with blue water

Well fark your festival then.

The real money is not at the Casino. It's at the KofC Bingo, just saying.

Some people use pads for urine leakage, and for blood. Blue is a nice marketing color, so they use blue in replacement of pee yellow, and blood red. They use blue in diaper commercials too. I guess people do not want to see pee and blood.

Honey, do look at the size of these melons!
 
2021-07-12 9:56:11 PM  
I would love to go, if it were near here.
I used to be on a forum where one of the contributors was a big, hairy-chested drag queen who dressed in drag and told jokes. He (she) and friends did Drag Queen bingo and held Drag Queen Tupperware parties, for LBGQT charities. But she lived in Colorado. Still, I always wanted to go to Nuclia Waste's Bingo.

Are there drag-queen-bingo events that aren't raunchy?
 
2021-07-12 9:58:35 PM  
Since this is an LGBT friendly event at Melon Fest, does that mean this is a group of Draggin' Fruits?

I'll show myself out.

If Key West can do Fantasy Fest, with drunks, drag Queens, nude tourist, and 80,000 visitors without all the local kids turning into pumpkins, I am sure your town can handle one evening of Drag Queens.

I dunno, man. Dragon Queens can look farking HORRIFYING, like the one in the article. Kids really shouldn't be around just like they shouldn't be around clowns. *shudder*

Well. Yeah. My point is the picture above proves it's not as awful as one would imagine.

Farrah Moan was always irritating to me. I could never get over it, although the fight with Valentina on their Drag Race season's reunion was hilarious.

BenDeLaCreme, on the other hand, makes me feel funny in my pants for being simply delightful and pulling off the 40s pinup model look with aplomb.

Not to be nasty but deep down I felt drag queens were kinda a version of female black face. Can someone explain to me why? Not trolling I just wanna know because I'm confused.

"Dragon Queens" is now the name of my Asia/Queen all-glockenspiel British progressive rock tribute band.

I forgot about that look. That season was way toooooo long. Drag race stuff outside of the show is way way more entertaining than the show itself.

Letting my kids run around with the drag queens at 9:30 at night during the summer is how I do parenting right.

Damn if I am going to teach them to put on make up half as well.

I think Bob the Drag Queen had the best comment from the episode before the Season 13 finale, when Bob said at that point in Season 8, they were halfway through filming Season 9.

/UK Season 2 was awesome
//Down Under Season 1 was decent
///All Stars 6 is...fine, so far.

That is what I needed to know. It's a celebration of women. Not disempowering.

Family friendly is code for conservative friendly which means kids friendly.

"Family Friendly" can't mean that everything is okay for kids and adults as many "family friendly" events and places have activities that are only for kids. So why can't they have activities just for adults?

Or a Civil War reenactment, or an insurrection, or a lynching...you know, Republican ideas of a good time.

Howell city officials released a statement in response, which said the "event at a traditionally family-friendly festival celebrating the harvesting of Howell's unique melon was a decision made by the Howell Area Parks and Recreation Authority."

I had to look it up. It's a cantaloupe. The Howell Melon was supposedly gifted to them as seeds from a "hobo". That variety was killed off by disease but they continue humping this whole melon thing because, well, and I'm just guessing here, there is absolutely nothing else of any importance in Howell.

Okay?
Maybe but I doubt it.

But as long as we're bringing this kind of stuff up I've met one too many gay men that really did seem to hate women and were grossed out by the idea of a vagina.

"The Howell Melon Fest is supposed to be a family-friendly event and not one that should be sexualized with an event like this."

"Please be aware there will be many raunchy jokes for adult audiences only," the event's press release said.


Heaven forbid any consenting adult be voluntarily exposed to drag queens or raunchy jokes.

I wanted to see where it was and Google maps couldn't find it, so....

I know the area and it's not that far. 15-20 minutes from Ann Arbor
