Gun violence is never funny, but only in Miami would officials hold a rally to put an end to residents shooting off guns in the air to celebrate New Years titled "No More Stray Bullets." They even flew a giant sky banner over the county with the slogan.
We're not mocking the message, just lamenting the sad fact that this is even so much of a problem that a public campaign had to be enacted to promote it.
Seriously people, celebrate New Years like the rest of us: get drunk on crappy champagne, make out with something trashy with acne scars, cheap highlights, and lots of pleather attire, then pass out in the hotel rooms of some fun loving European tourists named Gunther and Helga you just met.
