We Love Mommas

Our Lenten Brawl was a success of biblical proportions. $1,300 is going to Birthmark Doula Collective, which is enough to buy TWO birthing tubs and upkeep materials for a year. Well done betters and bribers! This past throwdown saw the comeback of crowd favorite SlamRock O’Hagan. She was smashed by the Harlem Hammer, in the end, who had the intense eye contact skills and attitude to become our newest champ.

MC Nina was taken out by the woman who brought her into this world. Tete La Plenty showed us what tough stuff she was made of while her entourage glitter bombed the first five rows of the audience. Sister Mary Slammer graced us with her presence to provide blessings  and settle the centuries long debate of Christianity or Judaism when she beat the Circumcisor in a special arm wrestling holy war. Somewhere between weilding an umbrella and burning Chris Brown’s reputation, celebrity judge Rihanna found  time to practice her planking skills for a bribe-sponsored match between illustrious butt ref Big Ern McBurn and former contender, the Vagitarian. Immigrants, religious enthusiasts and many sassy folks all put on an amazing show and got our 2012 season off to a great start.

Humongous thank yous to DJs Justin and Brian Boyles (especially for the continuing after party at Handsome Willy’s), the Camel Toe Lady Steppers, Praline Dupre and the Howlin Wolf. Photos are by Katrina Arnold, check her out for all your freelance needs.

Look for our next brawl in May!
