I keep telling you assholes, the more you try to fight global warming the harder it is going to be to have warm weather and all the boobies in skimpy, tight bikinis just out there for the whole world to see.  Frankly I think you assholes are afraid of titties.  Shame on you.  You're no better than the Southern Baptists and the Mormons.

Not the worst Marti Gras ever. You could have gotten raped by a guy named Fat Tuesday

I see.  Climate change has drastically altered the migration habits of boobies.
 
2014-03-04 08:12:14 PM  
I'm glad I just happened to be here during Mardi Gras and didn't make a special trip.  I saw some boobies the last two weekends but last night was cold and tonight's even colder.  And raining off and on.  Webcams show the boobies are pretty bundled up tonight so I'm getting in some Stick of Truth time.

I'm pretty sure a little rain never stopped the city of New Orleans from remaining in its perpetual state of drunkenness.

I've never gotten the gist of Mardi Gras. I've never been, so maybe it's a "you have to be there to get it" thing, but all I've managed to learn about it is parades of people in ridiculous costumes roll through the streets, and they throw strings of cheap beads at the crowds, and some chicks will flash boobs to get more beads, and gratuitous amounts of booze is consumed by everyone. I'm not knocking it, sounds like a hell of a time, it's just, what the hell is being celebrated?

Getting to New Orleans is such a pain.  We need a digital equivalent of giving beads.  We send the digital beads, you Farkettes send the photos.  We promise we'll erase them.  Honest.

I tried sending one of my friends digital beads, and all I got was pictures of her wearing real beads. :(

Look, I'll even sweeten the offer.  If you send me pictures of you topless I WON'T send you pictures of my twig and berries.

Okay, my lawyer tells me I'm becoming threatening and hostile and threatening to send naked pictures of myself if my demands are not met could be construed as extortion.  But seriously... boobies.

I'm so sad and lonely.  :(

It's the spectacle of the thing.  It's the mishmash of a bunch of different cultures ranging from swamp people to French settlers to Caribbean celebrations and religion all melding into a slurry of gaudy insanity.  It's like Oktoberfest, really.  I mean, you don't have to go to Munich to drink.  You could just stay home and have a beer.  But you go to Munich during that two weeks to just experience the tradition.  Parades, beer, beer wenches, and loud songs being sang while standing on tables.

Countries all over the world have weird celebrations.  Why do various cities in Spain decide to cut bulls loose and try to outrun them?  Why do people go there just to watch it?  Why not?  

If it's not something that can resonate with you, then I don't know what to tell you man.  For me, I love being surrounded by various cultural celebrations, be they somber or tacky.  Watching how a people cut loose and celebrate is a great way to see a cultural's overall temperament.

It's a big party to kick off Lent, which starts tomorrow.  Of course, if you're not Catholic, you don't have to give up anything for 40 days to appease your deity...so you celebrate the boobies.


Mmmmmm...boobies

Yeah, it's not like cars, planes, trains, and boats can't all get there....
Judging by the Facebook feed from my NOLA friends, not a fark was given. Though they aren't hanging out on Bourbon St anyway. It's a "do it once" type thing. I won't go to the French quarter for it again unless I am on a damn balcony.

I was at the Infant Mystics parade yesterday at the Mobile, AL Mardi Gras and it was about the same.  Lots of good throws because there was no one else out there, but I couldn't feel my toes after I left.  Quite miserable.

The time my friend got shot as we were peeing between a building and a car right off Bourbon st. was my worst Mardi Gras.

A group of teenagers were popping tires as they walked down the street and my friend said "Duuudes?"  One of those "Duuudes" took offense and pointed the gun at my friend's head, but thankfully the gun mis-fired. When the "Duuude" lowered the gun it went off and hit my friend in the leg. I guess it could have been worse, but it was still bad.

I've been once, when I was in college.  I thought it would be better.  The port-a-johns overflow into the street.  It's absurdly crowded with overdrunk and obnoxious people.  Most places have lines to get anything.  There's puke all over.  It smells.  A couple of friends and I sat in a liquor store that had a table in the French Quarter and drank and watched the crowds.

My wife and I had a pretty good Mardi Gras despite the cold and wet.  We had a great breakfast at Le Peniche, met up with friends on Esplanade and spent a few hours watching various marching groups gather and pass by the R Bar in the Marigny.

I wouldn't want to trade our Tuesday for anyone else's :-)

I have been playing around with IFTTT and set it up to capture any instagram from the Quarter and upload it to my flikr. It's been a  mixed success Sun-Mon grabbed some cool pics and everyone looked like they were having fun. Today's haul is pretty lame though.

The only way to do it is with a balcony on one of the main parade routes. Don't wanna be down there with all the rabble....

No, the worst Mardi Gras ever was in 1979 when NOPD went on strike and the whole thing was basically canceled. Public support of the union evaporated. This was a bad day, but the Mardi Gras season starts on Twefth Night (January 6) and ends on Fat Tuesday. Parades started ten days ago. We had some great parade weather. Yes, it rained today, but Rex and Comus will still have their balls and the meeting of the courts. If a bunch of low-class, drunken, white trash had to take one day off from pudding and puking and whoring it up for cheap plastic we'll be throwing out tomorrow, no one here cares.

What Mardi Gras really is is a feast before Lent starts on Ash Wednesday. In years past, meat was forbidden for the forty days of fasting that marks Lent. So, meat stores needed to be eaten, along with any fatted calfs. A LOT of meat would be cooked, hence "Fat Tuesday." The boeuf gras, or the fatted calf, remains a symbol of Mardi Gras.

We have an apartment in the Quarter but we came home on Sunday. I-10 between here and New Orleans was closed due to ice on the road. Glad we came home.

I can't imagine enjoying Mardi Gras. I was in NO on a normal Saturday night (pre-Katrina) and it was elbow to elbow, smelled like piss and barf, and had would-be muggers following us. Good music and good food were the saving graces. I love a good party, but I like one where I am not being groped by skanky guys and washing vomit off my shoes. Plus the roaches, good God the roaches. We were in the FQ, in a lovely old hotel, and one of those mofos crawled across my sheets and about gave me a heart attack. I swiped at it and it jumped at me. I didn't sleep a wink.

You should have left the French Quarter for a bit. Your loss, I suppose, but locals seldom go to Bourbon Street.
