Holiday Parade is running an exclusive contest on Absolutepunk.net called "Sh*t On Their Parade". Whoever posts the meanest, nastiest, and cold-hearted comment about the band, wins a free CD and t-shirt; you have to be creative. The only rule is: you can't make fun of the band's look or image, because that just lacks creativity and is super unoriginal. Post as many comments as you'd like because there is no limit at all; feel free to use pictures to get your point across as well.
