Death to the Hollywood Christmas Parade

We knew something was wrong. In November we asked "Does the Hollywood Christmas Parade Try to Suck?", and little did we know it wasn't spasticly waving, it was drowning.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce yesterday said they lost $100k on the parade last year and would probably lose $200k this year. Which is a lot for something that sucks as much as it does, so they're ending the parade forever.

But just because something sucks and cost a lot of money doesn't mean that we should just cast it aside, hell some of our best friends suck and cost a lot of money.

So we thought that someone should take ownership of the parade, or at least co-sponsor it for the $200k, someone who understands what it means to spend a lot of money on total crap: Hollywood.
