Highlights of the King Mango Strut as I witnessed it.  I shall never forget the Chonga Girls.  Nice Catholic girls taking a swipe at bad form latinas.  They were a you tube sensation, here is their participation in the KMSrut.  I suggest you actually google you tube for Congaliscious and see them up close and personal.  kept me in stitches..  the One Ear Society took on the Weapons of mass destruction, Bush years.  We turned it into the Weapons of Mass Distraction. “The Weirdest Parade in the Universe that brought you The Marching Freds, The Synchronize Briefcase Brigade, The Booger King, The Million Chad March, The League of Dead Voters, Cuban Eye for the Gringo Guy, Idu Grab Prison, Weapons of Mass Distraction, Osama Piñata, The Hare Krishnas and the Running of the ...yes that would be the LW Hashers. “occasionaly we did a routine. We came out with Barets and black capes a la Francaise. Did a little number and exposed our construction cone brassieres with blinking lights inside, we out did Madonna.  It was a hit.  Not sure how we thought of these things.  definitely they were a distraction.

photo here was taken by Harry Emilio Gottlieb “Asked the old codger to please pose for me. By now he must be in King Mango Strut Heaven. The skimpily clad gals in the background are straddling a bomb or missile, that is wrapped in newspaper stories of the War. I even sold a few prints.”  Harry
