In a few weeks I’ll be heading down to the Big Easy and do you know what starts in a few weeks in the Big Easy? I’ll give you three guesses! No it’s not the annual hair club for men bi-annual junket. And no, it is not the annual goat farmer’s convention and sheep shearing competition, although I have heard that it’s a blast. It’s MARDI GRAS!!!!
In a few weeks hundreds of thousands of people will come from all over the world to celebrate Mardi Gras in New Orleans, LA (NOLA) or the Big Easy. People will come to drink Hurricanes and Shark Bites. People will come for the parades and toss beads in the hopes of seeing the parts of you that are normally covered by a bathing suit. People will get arrested and people will go to jail. In anticipation of the event I have started a “Shades Bail Fund” fundraiser and you can contribute by sending a two-party out of state check to 1333 Meandering Way, Garland, TX 75040.
Mardi Gras’ is the time to let loose and get some sinning in right before Ash Wednesday and before Lent begins. The idea is to try to fit in 40 days and 40 nights of debauchery in for however long you are going to be at Mardi Gras for.
So come on down to NOLA, and bring some beads, beer and make sure you get a King’s Cake, because if you don’t find the baby in the cake you will not have good luck the rest of the year!!
