I hear tell that in the Cotton Bowl parade, the floats have to be made out of cotton. I also learnt that in the Rose Bowl parade, the floats gotta be made out of different kinds and colors of roses.
I live in Northwest Arkansas and we have the Feather Fest and the Feather Parade (sponsored by Tyson, of course). In our parade, do all the floats gotta be made out of dead chicken parts?

It would be kind of hard to make the parade floats out of live chicken parts, so I think it’s gotta be the dead ones. However, you gotta remember that “parts is parts.”
Actually, I don’t think that they have to use just chicken parts at the Feather Fest (though I ain’t never seen or even heard of that parade). The high school bands they’d have marching wouldn’t like being dressed up in feathers, beaks, and eyeballs cuz it can get kinda itchy.
If’n you were a guy, I’d say that someone was jerkin’ your chain (which can make you feel foolish and good at the same time). Since you are a girl, I’d say that anyone who told you this was just funnin’ with ya.
Today’s Observation from Throckmorton P. Turdblossom: If’n you find a pair of panties in the glove box of your son’s truck, you can expect one of two things is gonna happen (and neither one is good): a shotgun weddin’ or he’s comin’ out of the closet.
