German Carneval Float Constructions: Satire on the Street

German Carneval float: Blonde Is the New Brown

Not my typical post for this blog, but these German Carneval float constructions are so good that I felt I had to share.

Carneval is a time when things go upside down, and in Germany, that often means that the Carneval floats are merciless in their lampooning of current events.  This year is no different, with a number of floats that are on the border of being offensive.  (Which, one can argue, is where the clown should live)

These floats are 3 dimensional cartoons, but they are so well constructed, and well thought out.  I am jokingly considering if I could build one for a local Fourth of July parade, but it would be so out of character (and the parade where I normally am during the Fourth of July) is so red-state oriented that I fear that it might be attacked.  On the other hand, that might be good to create such a strong reaction that people have to act against you.  On some level, it’s much better than people paying no attention or even worse, being blase.
