While Rob murdered all thoughts of sobriety at the Super Bowl in Denver, I drowned all potential recollection of the weekend in New Orleans with a rapid, terrifying succession of Bourbon Street drinks that knocked me on my ass and into a tense conversation with a Louisiana State Trooper. It wasn’t my first Mardi Gras or my first drunk, but there was a strange catalyst in the air of New Orleans that drove me to further add to the culture of the city by pissing on the outer walls of an unoccupied portable toilet. He strongly suggested I enter the empty port-a-potty before I began pissing on its walls. I abided. Lesson learned.
Shockingly, there is more to Mardi Gras than public urination and excessive intoxication. The bulk of it all surrounds the throwing of cheap, plastic projectiles into throngs of raucous onlookers. That alone always provides some excitement, and thanks to a tip, I got my hands on this excellent video of some kid being fucking decked by a large bag of beads thrown from a passing float.

There’s a dude with a baby in one arm snagging that crap out of the air and this kid got straight dropped with a surprise blow. I guess shit happens, but damn, what a throw by the goon on the float. I’m somewhat concerned for the kid’s well-being, but at the same time, I’m so mesmerized by the heat put on that laser throw, I’ll just assume he came out of it with nothing more than a few logos imprinted into his forehead. Or he could be dead? It’ll buff out, I’m sure.
The tipster didn’t say where or when this occurred. I’m going to assume this was somewhere in south Louisiana, but I’m not terribly concerned with specifics. We just watched a kid get dropped by a fastball from a moving float. I’m fully content..
