Wincing Devil Flash Mob Chantey Sing in DC! (7) RE: Flash Mob Chantey Sing in DC (Pix/Video) 31 Jul 08

It's over with, I can call it whatever I dang well please!

About 10 hardy souls showed up to serenade the Lone Sailor. A police officer strolled by, she didn't bother us, I didn't spit in her face or stove in her jaw, thus saving me six months in Old Walton Gaol. We sang two rounds, and were read the Riot Act (literally!). We peaceably dispersed, walking to Gordon Biersch for a bite and a brew. (I'm the one who read the Riot Act, just as a way of saying "You don't have to go home, but ya can't stay here!")

When's the next week without a chantey sing???

The Pix are at:

The YouTube Video of us singing Nelson's Memory is at:

The Riot Act of 1714

Our sovereign Lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons,
being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably
to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the
pains contained in the act made in the first year of King George, for
preventing tumults and riotous assemblies.

God save the King.
