For those of you who may NOT know, today is what the Christians call Fat Tuesday. This is the last day of Mardi Gras and the beginning of Lent. Lent of course is what you brush off your clothes when they come out of the dryer. Excuse me for just a moment…Okay…I’ve just been corrected by my Lent Guru. Lent is when the Christians go and give up junk and pretend they are sacrificing.
I am NOT trying to insult the Christian Religions here folks, this is just a little Lent Humor…BACK OFF…In FACT, I myself am Catholic, or at least I think I am, I mean the Pope just resigned right??? Does that mean that all the Catholics in the world are FREED now? I don’t know, I never DID understand all the rules and regulations that follow this faith.
For example, the whole Friday giving up MEAT thing, NOW it’s supposed to represent a sacrifice, but back in the day, the Hierarchy of the Church did it because they were running scarce on meat and they determined it would be a good way to ration it.
Okay, enough about religion, I seriously don’t want to offend anyone. Let’s talk about Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras. Years ago (2)…Well, it does SEEM like years ago, I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. OMG…What a F**KING party, I did nothing but drink beer, grab as many beads as I could and showed my BOOBS more than Lance Armstrong winning that bike thingy.
Guys, seriously, if you haven’t gotten your daily fill of breast watching, HERE is the place to go. I have NEVER seen so many drunken people in my life, many of them women who would show their boobs freely for a couple of necklaces that the people throw from the floats. And YES, just in case you were wondering, I was one of those drunken very beaded up and boob flashing women.
I have never had such a good time in my life. Party after party in the streets and EVERYBODY was your friend. SURE…They couldn’t pronounce or even REMEMBER your name but they were indeed your friends. Hey…Do you think it was because of being topless??? Just askin’.
