THE BELLEVUE AVENUE STAKES PT 4 of 7 DON’T THROW FOOD AT THE CANDIDATES

As you may recall from our last episode the race for city hall dominance is in full swing. The democrats has placed their money at the betting window on Temperament ridden by Stephanie Minor. Not to be out wagered with Joe Nicoletti on Hanna. Both candidates er um..horses have heavy weight backers.

The long shot candidate on Star Buck, Alfonso Davis makes a run at the half-mile mark only to be stopped by crabs-in-a-barrel who wanted to take his place. “It’s my turn one crab grosses”, while another crab grabs Alfonso’s horse by the tail. As in many political endeavors in the African American community a black candidate has to overcome what at times appear to be insurmountable odds.
Meanwhile there has been a shift in the lineup. Otis Jennings on Ty-Ra-Banks has gone to the outside as he lays on the whip, “Hey ya!, crack!” As he passes other republican mayoral candidates Jennings shouts his trademark battle cry, “It is better to look good than to feel good”.
Undaunted by the pre election posturing Van Robinson on Elmer-the-glue-horse is now neck and neck with Bill Ryan as they both jostle for position at the half-way mark of the race.
At this point the race has been eventful with a disqualified Unicorn to Mule masquerading as a horse. Just as you thought the race couldn’t get crazier a group of Murbro Parking employees with large sling shots start pelting the elected leaders and their horses with cow pies. (for those living on Winkworth Pkwy that’s cow crap)
Adding to the upheaval spectators angered by poor electoral selection in this contest begun throwing things directly at the candidates on the race track.
Take that, “splat!” as a key Lime pie hits Stephanie Minor’s horse Temperament in the face, “now that’s what I call social justice” shouts the perpetrator as he runs and hides behind the Jerry rescue monument downtown. He then posed like the statue acting like the statue as its characters point to a route that takes you beyond the mall.
As they speed past the halfway mark the horses are bunched up and it’s two early to distinguish one from the other. The only thing certain is that there’ll be excitement as these horses cross the finish line sometime in early May.
