Beijing gets the Olympics. Taipei gets the Deaflympics. Or is that being unfair?
Anyway, some sort of opening ceremony was passing by at the end of my street, so I grabbed my camera and was met with a Batman-esque (Tim Burton vintage) floating barrage balloon parade. Sports shoes, frogs, sea horses … and all guarded by a team of Star Wars’ Storm Troopers. It just makes so much sense.
Frog (the mascot) I understand (although why choose a frog? What do they have to do with hearing impairment?) Training shoe; I understand. Sea horse? …
Storm Troopers. Yup.
Storm Troopers avec floating training shoe. Use the force!
These are not the droids you are looking for.
