In an unprecedented mayoral decree, Alvin Brown canceled tonight’s scheduled Art Walk because, as he put it: “art is gay.” Mayor Brown explained “sure we want business and activity downtown, but not that kind, you know that kind,” as he made a limp-wristed hand gesture. “Besides,” the mayor continued, “There’s nowhere to park downtown.”
Tarl Peterson, an ambassador employed with Downtown Vision concurred, “yeah, it’s pretty gay, you know, art in general is just about as gay as it gets. I think we could do better with a Sports Walk or maybe a Guns Walk. That’d be a lot less gay.”
Representatives of art or the gays could not be reached for comment, but are expected to protest the cancelation by going anyway.
