I’m pretty tired, but I had a great season. Although, I’ve heard of two incidents where riders on the floats were assholes.
Someone riding with the Krewe of Thoth apparently was throwing “Mamie Dolls” at older black women on the route and they were exploding on impact.
Also, a fool riding with the Krewe of Bacchus hurled a jug of urine at a guy. At least this guy went to the end of the route and filed a complaint. The link is here is you want to read up on it.
No word on the mamie doll throwing mf’er.
As much as I love Mardi Gras, there are people riding who are complete assholes.
A lot of racists up there too ( my next post).
I guess it doesn’t dawn on them that, they’re standing targets up there on those floats. It will though when someone pulls one of them off of the float or shoots one of them for messing with their family member.
Mardi Gras is a wonderful time in the city for the most part.
But yeah, a lot of assholes view it as an opportunity to practice their racists views…
or as a time to simply be a jerk.
Still looking forward to next year though.
Because for every ass riding,
there are five who aren’t.
They’re the ones who make the krewe special,
and help make Mardi Gras
something to look forward to.
