South Miami Manatees Are Latest Wussy Animals in Street Art Program
|Is that a surfboard on your head?|
No matter what good cause is being supported, or how many cute kids or worthwhile organizations are responsible for the individual sculptures, there really is no excuse for these enormous tacky herds crowding public space. Read on for details of the South Miami Manatee Fest.
And manatees? We thought the pink snails were bad. But these groupings of color vomit make Romero Britto's work looking edgy. Plus, who decreed that only native weakling South Florida animals can be given this "honor?" If the rest of the country isn't already convinced we're pussies, their minds will surely be made up now.
We do credit the latest program for upping the corn significantly with the inclusion of baby manatees in the warm embrace of their parent. Apparently, loveable, cuddly, fat sea cows were not wimpy enough without bringing pups into the fray.
You can pick up a map to find out where exactly these manatees are hanging out in different business throughout South Miami -- there's at least four at the corner of Red Road and Sunset Drive next to the Shops at Sunset Place. But no matter how tempting, please refrain from picking them up and dumping them in waterways.
