Last month we reported that a satirical website sent spasms through the Masonic community when they "humorously" wrote that 12 spectators were killed when drunken Shriners in a 4th of July parade drove into the crowd.
Yesterday, unfortunately, something similar actually happened.
Eight people were injured when two tiny Shriner cars collided during a parade in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and then careened into the crowd, according to the AP.
About 5,000 Shriners are in Chattanooga this week for the 73rd annual convention of the Southeastern Shrine Association.
