Yes, that wacky time of year when crowds of happy revelers gather to watch extravagant parades, drink excessively and to toss colored beads to beautiful ladies after shouting "Show us your t*ts!" Since the weather in New Orleans is a bit chilly this year, our ladies have found a way to collect their beads without catching cold. They took a lesson from an 18th century French Highwayman by name of Claude Duval. Standing there proudly and flashing smiles as bright as the steel they were carrying, they shouted "Stand and deliver!". And deliver they did as you can see by these wonderful pictures taken not only by our staff photographer, CameraGuy, but also by SwordGuy and our newest unpaid staff member, Gandalf the Digital. Please enjoy!
