Well, I for one, am glad this story of what happened at Mardi Gras 1992 is coming to light.

So then, if you flash your tits, people will throw you more beads? Wow. Who knew?
 
2010-02-14 02:06:32 PM  
Beadgasm. There, I made a new word too.

I'm a prostitute who accepts beads as currency, so I'm getting a kick out of this article.

My god, is the world ready for this knowledge?

If you flash your dick, will someone try to toss a ring on it? Or perhaps a horseshoe...

I'm curious about something here. Is there one, single, farking person in the entire world who didn't know any of the things included as revelations in that incredibly short and pointless article?
 
2010-02-14 03:38:12 PM  
How come there were no tits in that article?
 
2010-02-14 03:38:22 PM  
Yeah, I think the tag should be replaced with "Obvious"

I will sell you Manhattan for 100 of your beads.

I learned that millar-mcune is a site I will remember to actively avoid from now on.

This practice, he reported, "began in the late 1970s, but its occurrence sharply increased from 1987 to 1991." (Ah, yes, those wild and crazy years of the first Bush administration.)

In other news, the first Bush administration apparently started in 1987.

Clock Spider Jerusalem: If you flash your dick, will someone try to toss a ring on it? Or perhaps a horseshoe...


I don't think I want someone tossing a horseshoe at my junk.

On a related note, one of the bands that I played in did a Mardi Gras show, so we bought a bunch of beads to throw out. Tons of boob-flashing. So we figured "Hey....why don't we throw out beads at every gig?" It always worked, no matter the time of year.

/Obviously, we didn't do that when we played free shows for the local retarded-adult-school mixers or the annual Catholic church extravaganza. Sure our standards were low, but you gotta draw the line somewhere.

Last I heard, the NOLA police were cracking down on such deviant behavior. Any truth in that?
 
2010-02-14 03:46:33 PM  
That story deserves Ric Romero as the author and an obvious tag instead of weird.

So that's when everything went "tits-up"...thanks

The real reason they probably didn't throw this kid any beads was because his father didn't love him enough to strap him to the top of a six foot folding ladder while he stands behind the ladder drinking beer and propping his foot on the lowest rung.

Ever since I was a teenager, I've dreamed of flashing my boobs for beads at Mardi Gras. I've just never been able to find anyone to make the trek with me. ;_;
 
2010-02-14 03:55:03 PM  
One thing the article doesn't cover and I think everyone needs to realize is this:

Showing your middle-aged "man-boobs" for beads does NOT work.

I dont know why but apparently it just doesn't.

Double standards. Typical. 40 year old women go nuts for Twilight but Miley's 40 year old male fans get put on watchlists.

I'm a married man now... but had you said something 2 years ago I would have supplied the car and the bead to the onlookers whom wanted to throw them
