    Cross-dressing banjo players brawl on Mummer's Night in Philly

    Classic Deadspin account, with link to Philadelphia Inquirer story plus YouTube brawl video:

    Some Cross-Dressing Banjo Players Got Into A Brawl In Philadelphia On Sunday
    from the Inquirer:
    A few mummers dressed in pink as wenches enter the fray and people start shoving each other. One of the wenches makes his way to confront a paradegoer in the crowd gathered on the sidewalk. The paradegoer then jumps the barricade, which comes crashing down and the crowd spills into the street.
    A few mummers dressed in pink as wenches. Yes. That's what you read. And that's also what you'll see in that video — taken by a Two Street Narc who doesn't know how to hold the phone to properly capture video. You'll also see grown men sporting varsity jackets representing their respective prancing clubs.

    .....and JerzBarbie has now been entered into the witness protection program.


    Ahhhh the power of YouTube. This happens every year to some degree. Them wenches have been drinking for at least 16 hours by the time they are back on 2 Street. Anyone who goes there should expect death by wench. Otherwise they should go view the parade from Broad street.

    There's a lovely aspect to the parade when the winners are announced. They are serenaded by the losers.

    Y'all wish you lived here. Wenches are the best.

    An illustrated guide to everything you need to be a wench.

    For the record a wench does not play the banjo. Perhaps they know how, but they can't when they march because they carry a parasol. String Bands play the banjos and other instruments and they drill.

    Jameson anyone?

    This may be the funniest sentence combination I've ever read.
