You Learn Something New Every Day, Episode 17,441: “Le Krewe d’Etat is a satirical New Orleans Mardi Gras krewe with their first organized inaugural parade in 1998.” Link. I looked that up after a TDE reader sent me this story about a pre-Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Parade last Friday: A twerking Miley Cyrus float and the Dancing Rob Ryans: It must be Le Krewe D’Etat.
I have no desire to be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. A small part of me would like to go, but I gotta believe something like that would suck the soul out of you for a least two weeks, which hardly seems like a good way to start Lent. But if you’re curious to know what’s happening today, you can find the parade schedule here.Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
