Notting Hill Carnival
Europe's largest street festival, London's Notting Hill Carnival, takes place on August bank holiday weekend: Sunday 27 to Monday 28 August. (Sunday is traditionally Children's Day.) The photo from last year's carnival looks like a Norman Rockwell comment. What a grumpy boy! How dare his mother force him into parading around dressed like a damned fairy! He'll never live it down at school. His only hope of regaining some street cred. is to flatten the school bully, who's twice his size. It's death or dishonour. God! Will mothers never learn that their sons have male dignity to uphold? This is boy abuse!
