Each carousel protest I meet all kinds of great people. It's time to recognize them with their very own awards post. So many entrants, so few winners. To win an award in a certain category you must go above and beyond the call of duty.
So without further ado...
The "I threatened Daniel" award:
"If you take my picture I'll knock you out." Yes, this deserving winner is capable of making empty threats of physical violence just like in 3rd grade.
The "Expensive car" award:
This was a hard one. So many illegal aliens drive nice cars but the "for official use only" bumper sticker made this Prius the final winner.
The "This is why we need illegal labor" award:
"I am able to keep costs down with illegal Mexican labor which means I have more money to buy cheap Mexican pot." I told this guy that his bussiness was a failure because he has to break the law to compete and he responded with that quote. Classic.
The "I won't take a picture with Daniel" award:
This was another hard one. (So many people won't take a picture with me) But I had to settle on Consul Fernando Ugarte. I actually told him at one point that if he agreed to give me one of the goodie bags and take a picture with me that I would go home. He laughed.
Lunch is ready... more to follow.
