You couldn't have asked for a nicer day for the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade which happened on the first day of Summer (6/21). While the freak flag flies high at this with pasties considered as formal wear, it was fun for at least one whole family. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio was there with wife Chirlane and their two kids Dante and Chiara who were also the official Mermaid King and Queen this year. Pictures from the 2014 Coney Island Mermaid Parade are in this post and continue below...

This shit is so lame and played out and packed with looooosers, next year they should march them onto to the pier and right into the ocean if they are all such fucking mermaids.

If I may say, friends ... there was indeed an excess of poundage at this year's parade.

NYC, lets kick DiBlasio and all his loser comrades back to the curb (where they belong), and get back to winning.

^ Yeah cuz NYC was "winning" with Bloomberg, right psssshhhhh keep sucking Bloombucks' dick and the 1%'s dick, clown.

This city is weaker than ever. The least amount of culture. Ever go to the East Village, Lower East Side, or Greenwich Village east of 7th Avenue on any Saturday night? Wack and dead, not the way it used to be. Long in the tooth shit.

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 1:40 AM

BTW "winning". You a disciple of Charlie Sheen or something?

DeBlasio just won the mayoral election and trounced his opponent Giuliani administraton leftover lackey Lhota, so he's "winning" big time so far.

But you can make him a mini-Obama i.e. a mini version of a guy everyone bitches about yet really don't know why they do if you like.

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 1:43 AM

I bet you like waif thin girls who can't take more than a 5" dick which is perfect for your 4" needledick herb.

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 1:46 AM

^you're poor and like fat chicks. Who cares what you think?

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2014 1:47 AM

BTW what's your problem with DeBlasio who hasn't even been in office for six months yet? Or are you like one of those dipshits who hate Obama for no reason other than he's black?

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 1:48 AM

You've got to love it. Our bottom scraping, race baiting, poverty pimp, mayor paints himself up as a smurf pirate and trots out his gremlin wife, his gimp son, and his cutter daughter,

What an inspiration for the greatest city in the world.

Such progress.

Obviously you care, Polly The Parrot who keeps repeating the same weak comeback.

Here's a cracker, bitch.

It's funny, the fact that you came up with the laughable notion that I'm poor and I like fat chicks shows that's YOU motherfucker.

Guys like you who rag on fat chicks = needledicks who could never go deep even in thick girls.

Nowhere close to 45 you fuckin unemployed loser posting right back at me at 2am on a Monday. Try self-employed grownass man with the freedom to post whenever I want unlike you you living at home with the parents broke bitch. I mean even if I had an hourly wage that's my hourly wage times more than what you make.

And say I was 45. I'll wipe the floor with you and then how would your 2X year old ass look?

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 2:02 AM

Wow 2am is the same loser still rambling on about how I live in a storage shed ,pathetic and so 2012. Try my own house dickless. You're homeless without your parents providing a roof over your head.

45 year old D. So mad.

BTW I created an email so losers like you could hit me up and the only person who wrote me was someone cool with me, so you're a bitch x 1000.

Posted by D | June 23, 2014 2:06 AM

Once again you harp on my age like it means something and it somehow makes me less or weaker than you when fact is it doesn't and I could beat your ass.

Pussy.

I'll take DeBlasio over closet homosexual who's ashamed to say he's gay, racist, despotic, nanny, pro-rich/1% Bloomberg any day of the week.

Such progress under Bloomberg - record numbers of people online and offline say NYC is a pile of shit.
