3/7/09

and the winner in the best use of shopping carts category goes to...

behind the smoke is the start of the 2009 chiditarod earlier today. the chiditarod is like the iditarod, only instead of dogsleds, it's people in costume. and instead of sleds, it's decorated shopping carts. and instead of racing over snow, it's racing over city streets. ok, so the only thing they have in common is 8 letters.

my personal favorite entrant was the popemobile/cart, complete with secret service-like security people scanning the crowd. other favorites include the tailgate theme, complete with grill in the shopping cart, and team tamale, where the whole cart was made into a cooler a la the tamale guy.

the tamale one reminds me of the best use of twitter i've seen yet - there's now a twitter feed which lets fellow tweeters/bargoers know which bar claudio the tamale guy is at. just follow @tamaletracker.
