san francisco's bay to breakers captures all that's grand about the city, from diabolical ingenuity to extreme tolerance, from systematic tomfoolery to extreme nakedness.
that's why 65,000+ people participate in this 7.5 mile bojaunt across town, and that's why the kenyans who win the "race" in about 34 minutes are a mere footnote to the keg-filled floats that cover the distance in about 3 hours and 34 minutes.
however, this year's best of show had to go to Michael Jackson and his Neverland Child Care Center. this float consisted of a rolling bed with a spooky King of Pop sporting a white surgical mask and brandishing a black parasol. and, of course, plenty of Jesus Juice to go around.
here are a bunch of other shots from the festivities:
a few of us actually ran the race this year...
