The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a great excuse to sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and watch people sing and dance their hearts out for a few hours. It’s also a wonderful excuse to express opinions about all sorts of stuff on twitter.
Let me start it off with a tweet of my own.
I’m thankful to live in a country so comfortable that people can have strong opinions about parades. #MacysParade

This woman has strong opinions about Matthew Morrison for some reason.
I have no use for Matthew Morrison and I have even less use for Matthew Morrison with a terrible British accent. #MacysParade

Some people just want to see the balloons. You hear me, flesh bags! Go away extremely talented singers and dancers! I want to see sacks filled with helium!
i don’t want to see musical junk, i want to see GIANT balloons! #MacysParade

More boons! Me want boons!
This person is kicking it up a notch.
For real just show us the damn parade not all this musical Broadway shit. The parade guys come the fuck on this is lame #MacysParade

Check out this spirited exchange where people debate the merits of musicals. Hard to say who won, but we all probably lost a little bit.
Sometimes the pomp and circumstance is just too much for some people.
I’m confused #MacysParade

Some people use the parade as an opportunity to remind themselves of their likes and dislikes
I hate musical theater. Thanks for the reminder. #MacysParade

That same person posed a question that is the beginning of a scathing and not at all necessary article about the King and I.
Thanksgiving parades are an excellent opportunity to shoehorn your causes into.
Yeah. Get with it, you guys!

I don’t know what this means but it seems important.
This reverend saw the performance of fiddler on the roof as opportunity to confess something extremely provocative without further comment.
I saw Fiddler on the Roof once because I loved my father-in-law. That is all. #MacysParade

This guy’s learning valuable life lessons all over the place.
This guy’s putting some suggestions out there. Programmers take note!
This is a true statement.
This woman’s learning stuff.
I never realized how corny, uninteresting and irritating the #MacysParade is
