Get out the sequins, booze, trinkets, booze, masks and maybe some booze.

Your challenges, whether you choose to accept them or not, is to share any Mardi Gras memories and/or post New Orleans Mardi Gras photos that do NOT include young female type women flashing their ta-ta's. (it can be done, honest)

This is the first Fat Tuesday in ten years that I haven't been tending bar. All of my Mardi Gras memories are bitter...bitter and wealthy, but bitter.

My child, every day is Mardi Gras. It's a goddamn Mardi Gras and you're too dumb to understand that.

I went to Mardi Gras in Sydney last year. It was awesome fun. I'd love to see New Orleans Mardi Gras one day.

In Melbourne, we only have Pride marches. They're smaller but still cool in their own way.

I don't know if the carnival celebrations in Sydney, Rio, and New Orleans are the three best, but they are the best known.

What's Fat Tuesday?
Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday--the beginning of Lent. It is also known as Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Day. It is a day when people eat all they want of everything and anything they want because the following day is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of a long fasting period for many Christians.

Did you have seconds, or just go straight to thirds?

I actually did do thirds this year--something I hardly ever do--and I paid for it. I suffered with a freaking sugar high for hours.

At least it was in a good cause.

It is a great AV, Vix. Keep it in a safe hid-e-hole until next year.

You could use it for April Fool's Day.
