BO BO BO BO BO BO!!!!” That’s Anthony Weiner making dancehall-style gunshot sounds atop a float at yesterday’s West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. If this is the struggling mayoral candidate going Bulworth, we’ll take it. “Anybody here from Jamaica? Anybody here from Barbados? Anybody here from Guyana?” he yelled, attempting to sound like an island D.J., complete with a fake Caribbean accent. “Anybody here from Staten Island?” he added, ditching the accent. It is … not natural. Like Bill de Blasio’s dancing.

A very sweaty de Blasio took his awkward turn at the parade, too, trying out a dance move — “The Smackdown” — with his entire family. Luckily, they make him look a little bit cooler:
