In this web exclusive, the Dang Yankee reports on improvements to the campground at this year’s Texas Renaissance Festival.
This May, 2012, story from The Jambalaya News was selected as a Finalist in the HumorPress.com writing contest for the 2nd Quarter of 2013. In it, The Dang Yankee suggests a means to solve the incessant problem of gridlock on the federal level.
If you attended this year’s Contraband Days Festival here in Lake Charles, then you were in for a special treat. A man in pirate costume was seen strolling up and down the midway with a guitar, playing seafaring songs to the crowd. No, that wasn’t the treat; that was me. The treat was the kangaroos in the Australian wildlife exhibit. Even on my best day, I couldn’t upstage a real, live kangaroo.
Last night, our wenches went and did it again! This time, it was at the Krewe des Pirates ball at the VFW hall here in Lake Charles, LA.
See the movie: Wenches of the Bayou: Kung Fu Fighting.
The Buccaneer wenches are ruthless at the annual Christmas Ball and Pillaging. Watch them take over the stage while the band does “YMCA”!
If you’re planning to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, be prepared. And by that I mean, make sure your credit line is big enough to outfit the cast of a major Broadway production. Why? Because that’s what it’s going to take if you plan on buying anything from the vendors, even if it’s just an ostrich feather. Take it from the Dang Yankee’s experience, as described in The Merchants of RenFest, appearing in the current issue of the Jambalaya News.
The city of Lake Charles operates under a unique system of government during its Contraband Days Festival. Read all about it in The Dang Yankee’s latest contribution to The Jambalaya News .
