Normally, inflatable promotional gee-gaws don't impress me. I loathe the inflatable snowmen, santas, and reindeer that clog up people's yards at Christmas time, and those air-powered humanoid figures that flail around wildly in front of auto shops, BBQ joints and car washes really give me the heeby-jeebies.
But something about this giant inflatable gorilla struck a resonant chord with me. I don't know why. It certainly helps that he's big as a house.
The soiree is just down the street from me. It's the Hillbilly Outfield Derby Party, raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
