On January 30, 2010, just days before a historic
mayoral election, krewedelusion, The Big Easy's newest satirical
parade, will roll through the streets of the French Quarter. The
new krewe was formed with the mission to save the Universe, beginning
at its center, New Orleans. Its Captain, Oscar Diggs, announced
that Harry Shearer will be appointed to lead the festivities, the
city of New Orleans, and everything else from here on in. "Where
most Krewes appoint royalty to govern the pomp and circumstance
of parades and balls, and most of our democratically elected leaders

said Krewe Captain Oscar Diggs, "krewedelusion intends to truly
empower its leader to govern. Govern everything. Period. Case closed."
Keeping its annual theme a secret until the day of their parade,
krewedelusion is the root organization from which a myriad of small
upstart and existing parading clubs will blossom. "If you ever
wanted to start your own satirical krewe, this is the year to do
it and the club to do it with," said Captain Diggs. "We're
just planting the seeds this year." One such blossoming organization
is composed of those new New Orleanians who came to help with our
recovery process, fell in love with our city and stayed. Dubbed,
"The AlKreweists," these do-gooders will make their Carnival
debut this year among many other fledgling groups such as the "Krewe
Known entities rolling with krewedelusion include the Noisician

Club, Amigos de los Amigos, Krewe du Jieux, and The Pony Girls.
