Good Neighbor Day


Chester County residents flocked to Downingtown's Kerr Park yesterday for the annual Good Neighbor Day Festival. As usual, many non locals - unfamiliar with "Good Neighbor Day" were disappointed upon learning that the Downingtown event has completely nothing to do with Ned Flanders - the popular Simpsons character.
"I was pretty pissed - I mean - 'Good Neighbor' - you know, 'hey Diddly Doo neighbor' - it's totally Ned Flanders. It's text book bait and switch. We came all the way from Maryland for this?"
Disappointment for many however turned to joy as they discovered the famous Inflated Uncle Sam (see amazing photo above). Just look at that Uncle Sam, all blown up, larger than life and perfectly framed by two strategically placed flower pots. Throughout the day, hundreds flocked to the inflatable Uncle Sam. Many dancing around him - others gained courage and moved closer to see if he was in fact real. And others took advantage of the top of the hour "Inflatable Uncle Sam speaks" portion of the festival where a few chosen Downingtown residents were invited to stand behind the blow up figure and pretend they're the Inflatable Uncle Sam. Although most lucky VIP's respectfully used their 30 seconds with the microphone, one jerk, who turned out to be from Coatesville, almost ruined the event by yelling into the microphone ,"Lambert's an A-hole and his truck is a piece of s**t. And his old lady's a skank!" He was quickly tackled and patriotically beaten by the locals.

I have heard the same thing about that Lambert fellow. I believe his old lady IS, indeed, a skank, and he has on occasion displayed behavior most commonly associated with that of a donkey's hind quarters.
Buenos diddly dias, good neighborino.

Lambert's old lady still around? Man, I thought she would have dumped him for someone with a nice truck by now.
