You just can’t make this stuff up! In a world full of modern day controversy and peculiar ideas, Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone runs away, far away with that prize.
In a tweet this past weekend, Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone Tweeted out:”Inspiring! Somerville will create the world’s first city sponsored alligator wrestling school – you can earn a Certificate of Insanity. Love the possibilities with events like the Flufffest – Gator fluffernutters anyone? @marty_walsh are you in? @MayorNarkewicz @MayorDriscoll”
Mayor Curtatone has hosted some rather interesting citywide events like the Somerville, Somerville BIG GAY PARTY and the recent Indigenous Peoples’ Day name change from Columbus and the infamous SOMERVILLE PITTY PARTY where he advertised on the city’s Art Council website:Are you feeling sad?
A pity party is usually a kind of party you have by yourself to wallow in sadness—wear pajamas, binge on ice cream, listen to sad songs. Let’s feel bad together! Join us for a big, public block party in Union Square. There will be artists, writers, and performers to offer sad songs and readings, and even facepainters to paint on some tears. Surprise us with your best melancholia.
But this new one surly takes the cake.
