For once you can give pounds to Krispy Kreme instead of vice versa

If you live in New Orleans, you probably have better donut options than Krispy Kreme.  Keep your beads.

We already know exactly how your mom earned them, subby.

They do the same thing here in Mobile, Alabama.  Nine pounds of bead for a free dozen.  I guess the owners are in one of the parade societies

Ya know, the type of person who eats a lot of donuts ain't gonna get many beads. And people who get a lot of beads don't particularly care for donuts.

hExcuse my hignorance, but please elucidate the novel and intriguing activity of giving Krispy Kreme to pounds.

/Sounds exciting
//Maybe not

So the people who get the most beads this year will get the fewest next year?

You'll just end up with a donut on your tits.

So you're saying the Venn diagram for this scenario may actually look like a pair of breasts?

I remember dating a girl that went to Tulane University. I met her in Richmond Va. Anyway, She's showing me her apartment and in the corner of her spare bedroom, is a whole crap load of beads. I mean, a lot of beads. An insane amount. Being I didn't know anything about beads/mardi gras, I asked her about them.

"Oh at Mardi Gras, if you flash your boobs, they throw beads at you. These are the ones I collected. If they hit the ground and I didn't catch them, I didn't take them.

I looked at the huge pile of beads and looked at her, looked at the beads and tried counting in my head how many times she pulled her top off.  She noticed me bewildered and reminded me..."oh, all those beads aren't from just one night. I did go to Tulane for 4 years ya know..."

Oh nice....I've only been to New Orleans once, back in the late 90's. I went just after Mardi Gras and happy I did it like that. Not much of a drinker. More of a food fan and I did have some mighty fine tasty stuff there. Yeah I did the touristy things but I also got off the beaten track and did local faire as well.

2018-03-13 09:33:53 AM  
I was kind of thinking Mardi Gras wouldn't be allowed anymore.

Is it still happening?
 
2018-03-13 09:33:53 AM  
 I believe subby meant "drunk tourists of New Orleans who piss everywhere and then complain about the smell" of New Orleans. No one around here flashes for beads. You all invented that, and that's one reason Bourbon St. is all yours. Enjoy the filth you make for yourselves.

Yeah I was thinking the same but later on I grabbed one of the beads and dangled them in front of her.

She failed to remove her top. She said it didn't count if I had to take a set from her pile.

Rules...I tell ya....

For real, we used to drive over from Pensacola and have breakfast on the weekends just for some of that powder sugar covered crack.

Yeah, I'm thinking that going to a Krispy Kreme in NOLA is a bit like going to an Olive Garden in Italy.

Here on Long Island, fried dough with powdered sugar is served at mom and pop pizza places. They are called Zeppoli's.

It's different.  In the same way a grilled cheese on white is different than a Reuben on rye.

Stop making me hungry. There's 10 inches of snow outside and there's no way I'm driving to the deli in that.

I'd go through 12 inches to get to the deli.

Well, being I live in the land of the mom and pop deli, I go to them often so missing one day isn't going to hurt.Was recently in South Western GA for 5 weeks and the closest thing to a deli was the Publix supermarket. Granted they used Boar's Head but the bread wasn't the same.

I doubt you can find it up there, but if you ever get a chance to try/buy some Chisesi's Ham, DO IT!  You won't regret it.
