Viva la Fifi!

Apparently I missed the 2004 Kinetic Sculpture Race that took place back on May 1st. I guess it is sort of like Baltimore's answer to San Francisco's Bay to Breakers — except with less nudity. The two funniest named entries where the Cirque de Sore Legs and a tribute to Franz Kafka's The Metamorphisis named La Kafkaracha. Apparently La Kafkaracha had some difficulties in the aquatic section of the race. It is unfortunate that Kafka's story wasn't about a man who turns into a large waterbug. The most asthetically pleasing entry, in my opinion, was simply called Fifi. The story doesn't mention where Fifi placed in the race but I'm sure the sight of a 10 foot tall pink poodle inspired fear in the hearts of all who saw it.
