Seventeen Years of Muses

This year 1100 Muses will parade and we hope our excitements can be conveyed. They are humble ladies and don’t mean to gloat…but this year has the best bands and the very best floats.

Muses is known for great throws and this year won’t let you down. They’ve got a few items you will use all year ‘round. They’ll throw light up diamond and bracelets made of shoes. They’ll throw re-museable totes you can use however you choose. They have got a spa headband to pull your hair back right and a combination bottle opener/flashlight! There’s a red puffy pom-pom and cool fuzzy socks. There’s a necklace spelling out Muses on tiny blocks. And just when you thought throws could not get more deluxe….Muses has made their own rubber duck!

And now everyone here please let’s all give it up for the student who designed this year’s Muses cup! Sha' Bria Counsin is the artist and the design is quite cool. Her cup earned $1,000 for NOCCA – her school.

The parade starts out with Big Easy Roller Girls

They skate and they roll and sometimes they twirl

And before throws get thrown and the big bands begin

Grab yourself a Muses parade bulletin

They have bands all lined up, they have floats filled with throws

Crowds will exult from their heads to their toes

They’ll roll up and down streets, reign over all with love.

And if you really want a shoe, please don't push, grab or shove

The Muses will put on a fantastical show

It’s "Dr. Meuss on the Loose" and Oh! The Parade They Will Throw!

SHOEVILLE

Float 7 - Welcome to Shoeville

Welcome to Shoeville, in the state of boot

Where the former gov’nor blew all our loot

We have our highs, we have our lows

Oh, the woes of Shoeville’s woes!

Shoeville is known as the City of Sin

But it's in pretty good shape for the state that it's in.

  • Band – Martin Luther King Charter School
YAT IN DA HAT

Float 8 - Yat in Da Hat

He’s a favorite Dr. Meuss character, he's crazy and vocal

He's also the most undeniably local

He eats erstas, drinks Barq's, and says “Where Y’at”

Let's all give it up for the Yat in Da Hat!

  • Band - George W. Carver High School Marching Band
YERTLE THE TURTLE SOUP

Float 9 - Yertle the Turtle Soup

For Yertle the Turtle things got really hot

When a Top Chef tossed him in a pot

He used onions, pepper and celery and made a roux goop

Until he had a big helping of Yertle Soup.

  • Band – West Jefferson High School
ONE PILL

Float 10 - One Pill Two Pill Red Pill Blue Pill

One pill, two pill, red pill, blue pill,

Some pills show how things really are.

Say, what a lot of pills there are!

  • Band – L.W. Higgins High School
JOCKS IN SOCKS

Float 11 - Jocks in Socks Hop on Pop

SINKLERS

Potholes and sink holes and holes in the ground

The Sinklers make holes all over our town.

  • Band – Kipp Leadership Academy
Horton Hears a Who Dat

Float 13 - Horton Hears a Who Dat

If I ran the zoo

I went on down to the Audubon Zoo, and they were all for sale to you.

I went on up to the big old Fly and the sign said for sale

The land’s for sale, the grass is for sale and they only serve one brand of ale!

  • Marching Unit – Camel Toe Lady Steppers & Brass Band

No matter where you are

But will they let you pee there

If you weren’t born with that star?

  • Marching Unit – Pussyfooters
grump

Float 17 - How the Grump Stole Twitter

His name is President Grump and he’s a talkative critter

at least he is when he’s tweeting on Twitter

He calls people LOSERS and mocks them with zest

Claims they're all overrated and he's simply the best.

This float features tweets we’ve seen from this Grump:

“Parade satire is so NOT FUNNY! These Muses should and will be punished in a HUGE way!”

“I am not a GRUMP! I won the popular vote and Electoral College! This parade must be backed by @CNN and the failing @NYTimes”

“If I were there I would grab me a Pussy…Footer!”

  • Marching Unit – Dead Rock Stars
and to think

Float 18 - And to Think That I Saw it on Bourbon Street

I went down to Bourbon Street and what did I see?

Boobs and leather and what on earth could THAT be?

They’ve got legs swinging out windows and folks singing the blues

And this guy says he knows where I got my shoes!

  • Marching Unit – Rolling Elvi
SHINEY MCSHEEN

Float 19 - Mayor Shiny McSheen and his Resilience Machine

Hide the crime, move the homeless and all the things that we dread

The whole city should shine like the top of his head

The mayor says New Orleans is no longer hurtin'

Just don't sneak a peek at what's behind the curtain

  • Marching Unit – NOLA Cherry Bombs
circus

Float 20 - If I Ran the Circus

The new Gov didn’t know that he’d be ringmaster

To the Legislature's three ring circus disaster

There's a clown on the dais and a guy tight-rope prancing

and a representative over 160 pounds who’s pole dancing

  • Marching Unit – Bearded Oysters
green eggs and hamilton

Float 21 - Green Eggs and HAMilton

You know theater can never go wrong

When you take a play and drench it in song

We've got hit musicals inspired by history, or Disney

Tickets cost only an arm, leg or kidney

  • Marching Unit - Kolossos Art Bikes
what do I do

Float 22 - What Do I Do Now?

My time is up, I’m done and how

I just want to know…WHAT DO I DO NOW?

Do I lounge ‘round a beach, make a lucrative speech?

The options are many, I might even teach

Do I take up a new hobby, make BIG bucks and lobby?

Which reminds me, anyone out there seen Bobby?

  • Marching Unit – Organ Grinders
yennax

Float 23 - The Yennax

I am the Yennax and I live in denial

I won’t leave my job, just take me to trial!

I can't go to schools, but I show up at work

It's not like working is some sort of perk

I have my job, folks, and I’m telling you,

I intend to go on doing just what I do.

  • Band – Noisician Coalition
old once

Float 24 - You’re Only Old Once, If That

When you’re starting to sag and feel out of luck,

It can all be resolved with a nip and a tuck

Why advertise all the years of your life

when they can each be erased with one slice of a knife?

  • Riding Unit – Laissez Boys
wife

Float 25 - Wife 1 and Wife 2 and Wife 3

I think your White House is overrated

I prefer my home gold-plated.

Donald moved to DC to flex his new powers

But we know he prefers golden towers

  • Riding Unit – Pink Slip Float
uber

Float 26 - The Uber Battle Blog

It seems to us in these modern times

It sure does pay to be online.

We're banishing taxis with our handy app

That's what happens when you build a better mousetrap.

  • Band – BateBunda and the Dance Group
wocket

Float 27 - Is That a Wocket in Your Pocket? (or are You Just Happy To See Me?)

Is that a wocket in your pocket or are you playing that game?

They’re popping up all over from dusk ‘til dawn.

Find them now before it’s Pokemon GONE!

  • Band – Bloco Sereia
SIRENS

Float 28 - Sirens
