Joe Cain Parade Called off in 2021

Friday night, the parading society in charge of Mobile, Alabama’s Joe Cain Parade voted unanimously to call off the storied street parade which includes “Cain’s Merry Widows” until 2022.

According to NBC15 in Mobile, all 36 of the parade’s permit holders met via phone this week, and made the decision. This brings the total number of Mobile Mardi Gras cancellations in 2021 to 22.

However, Mardi Gras isn’t the only thing not happening in Mobile in 2021, the city’s “MoonPie over Mobile,” which traditionally happens on New Year’s Eve as residents and tourists alike bring in the new year by watching a giant MoonPie be lowered onto the streets of Mobile has also been canceled.

It’s safe to say that 2020 is a year unlike any other year in history. More Mardi Gras cancellations are likely to come, its only a matter of time, and Joe Cain isn’t happy, but who could blame him?

Don’t worry Joe, if I have to come back down there and throw a parade with you, I’ll gladly do it. Rest easy, my friend.

Now is When We as Humans Need to Put Aside Any Differences We May Have and Do as God Calls His People to Do

It occurred to me recently, that there have been a lot of good things done in this world ever since this pandemic started.

People are helping people, they are giving to the less fortunate, delivering supplies to people’s houses etc.

Last night, a friend of mine who is in a nationally-touring band went live to address this pandemic, the effect that it has had on him and the other guys in the band.

But he said one thing that really hit home. “Put aside any differences that we may have and go help somebody in need.”

Basically what he was saying is, this is the one time in our lives that we are all struggling with the same thing.

As he spoke, I could hear God guiding his every word. You see, even though his band is unable to tour for the foreseeable future, he hasn’t let that get in the way of being the kind-hearted human that he is.

God calls us all for different things at some point in our lives. But right ͏n͏o͏w, I believe He is calling us to seek Him and He will guide us through these dark times.

I believe He is using this as a wake-up call for all of us. The kind of wake-up call that we’ve needed for hundreds of years now.

I have a feeling God is telling us, as a nation, to grow closer to Him and we will be perfectly fine.

If you have a neighbor, friend, etc. that can’t afford or is unable to get the essentials that they need now, do what God calls us to do and help them out in any way possible.

It’s time to stop being so self-centered and start looking out for those around us that need our help.

Why Did Clemson Pick that Tiger as their mascot?

I’m not exactly sure what Clemson University officials were thinking when they voted on a mascot, but there’s got to be a better-looking, more sober tiger mascot available than Clemson’s Tiger.

What made them think that those yellow eyes on that small Tiger head looked ferocious?

Why did they make the head that small?

It wouldn’t be that bad if his head wasn’t as small and he actually looked bathed at least half of the time.

But instead, he looks like a Tiger that hasn’t got much sleep, along with not taking a shower his entire lifetime.

Why does he look so ugly? I get it, the yellow eyes are supposed to be intimidating. Most of the time they are intimidating, to a certain degree.

But on that mascot?? I mean LSU fans have started a GoFundMe to buy you a new mascot. Maybe because, even drunk cajuns realize that the Clemson Tiger is absolutely horrendous.

You expect to have a dynasty? Okay, well you have the coach, the players, equipment and so much more.

But the one thing you are lacking is a mascot. Maybe if you would accept the Cajuns offer, they could help you build a dynasty. I mean, it’s worth the chance. It can’t get much worse.

Come on Clemson, you gotta do better.
