Balloon Boy Redux

The float entitled "Yes we can be ecologist" is featured in the 126th Nice Carnival on February 13, 2010. The theme of this year's parade, “Roi de la Planète Bleue” or "King of the Blue Planet," was portrayed with 20 floats including this of the King himself carrying some very small trees or large broccoli heads.  You decide.  Of course this was all done with environmentally friendly materials such as polyuerthane likely flown over in a jet by Al Gore himself.  Nevertheless, this gaseous tribute has a certain "je ne sais quois" quality that seems almost fitting for a President who flew to Copenhagen hoping to save a flailing global warming agenda and came back empty handed.

No King, should be without a Queen and possibly a few court dancers:
