Here are some of the weirdest walks from around the world.



Dance of the Giglio

From the hill towns of Italy to the streets of Brooklyn, 125 guidos raise a papier mâché tower to cele­brate tracksuits, hair gel, and Saint Paolina of Nola.



Mermaid Parade

Every June, Coney Island is beset by buxom aqua-fetishists. We prefer our Coney Island freaks pinheaded, tiny, or bearded, thank you very much.



St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The only day that sees more puke on New York City’s sidewalks than New Year’s Eve. Oh, look, a regurgitated four-leaf clover!



Muff March

Some Londoners hit the streets in December to decry vaginal rejuvenation (i.e., lady-part surgery). We’ve never seen a vagina in person, so we can’t take a stand.



SlutWalk

No, not the walk of shame—these marches are a feminist cele­bration of women’s sexuality! They really need a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.



Naked Bike Ride

OK, so this is technically not a march, walk, or procession, but as a rule we’re all for nudity, so we’ll make an exception. (Although the image above has us reconsidering.)
