This feels like one of those things that should have gotten more coverage when it happened. During a parade for Spain's National Day in 2019, the parachutist tasked with bringing the flag to be used in the parade got yanked out of the sky by an errant light pole. Amazingly the guy didn't get laughed at. Maybe the whole event was just "too official" for anyone to really lay into him in front of the King? Apparently he suffered no injuries. The only Spain king he got was the king of Spain telling him it was chill.

The 1997 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. There had been high winds that caused problems throughout the day. As you can see, the folks holding on the Barney were already having a hard time keeping him under control. As it happens, Barney got caught on a lamppost and suffered a fatal stab wound to the right side. And then, NYPD came in to finish the job

How did you celebrate the New Year? Get drunk? Thought so.

Well, not to make you feel bad, but this dude put together a 200,000-piece Lego Rooster for a Lego float to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rooster.

Commissioned by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the rooster stands at six-and-a-half feet tall (that’s taller than my dad!) and took five people a month and a half to complete.

Andy Hung, Hong Kong’s only certified Lego Professional builder says, "I wanted to use Lego pieces that resonate with people from the East and impress my audience.

Congratulations, Andy, you’ve succeeded. Now get on that float and take a bow.

Looks like Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be black listed for parent's with small children for a few years.

Thanks to strong winds in Manhattan during the annual parade, the people walking with the Barney float lost control. The giant balloon swayed into a street light, puncturing a giant hole in Barney's side. #Rest In Pieces
