Mardi Gras Mockery

Krewe du Vieux is always bawdy and irreverent. This year was certainly no exception. One float made fun of Michael Brown's absence during the Katrina aftermath showing an empty chair with an "Out To Dinner" sign hanging on it. Another float mocked the Comatose Corps of Engineers. Signs and costumes referenced Chocolate City, mold, toxic refrigerators and blue roofs.

In spite of the very cold and windy night, lots of people were out and about. Once the parade was over, we headed inside to warm up, eat, drink and dance. I drank lots of champagne and danced so much that today my swivel hips are very sore.

Oh, man, you live in the coolest place! Parades in the middle of winter. Parades all the time, actually. That's my kinda town.

These are the wonderful things we need to keep remembering during the height of hurricane season! :-)
