2008
The Black Forest Fancies partner with Carver Middle School to make a parade float about the new political tides in the United States through their "Heroes" program. The students decide to make a float depicting newly elected President Obama wearing a jump suit and donning a boom box, riding a bull which is dragging a sinking boat carrying monkey ex-president Bush, sea monkey Laura Bush and sea monkey daughters. The students had been promised new books on a visit from Laura Bush following hurricane Katrina but the books never arrived. The students said that they wanted ex-president Bush to look like he was drowning, just as he had left them to drown in the floods following Katrina. It was an incredibly cathartic experience for us all.
