    Haha! Yep, lot's have been known to get into lots of trouble over the years!
    Though the police are really tolerant with all the party goers each year. I knew one person that came back black and blue every year from falling off curbs, and who knows what else, only to have to be told by those with him how he got that way!

    Watch out for dead bodies randomly floating by. We know that's a real issue in poor NOLA.

    Since I am a Catholic, I can explain what Mardi Gras is all about.

    It is the last night of revelry before Ash Wednesday, which is a day of fasting and no meat allowed.

    Following that are 40 days of Lent, which is considered a time of fasting and prayer. On all Fridays of Lent, Catholics may not eat meat. At Mass the word "Alleluia" may not be said, and the priests wear dark purple, and there are no flowers. The whole point of Lent is self-denial, and penance, to prepare for Easter, which is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ, proving that even death can be conquered.

    The reason Mardi Gras is celebrated in New Orleans is because the city was founded by the French, who are Catholic. Mardi Gras is a last time that people can go crazy before Lent.

    Damn good post!

    I am so sick of the secularization of our holy days and then ignoramuses acting like the secularized version are the only ones that exist.

    Thank you again!
