Mardi Gras is a bastion of sin, frivolity and wickedness. Pure evil :D


Really. Its a huge party that originated, I think, when people wanted to have a last bash before Lent when they had to be good. Just a huge ass party where people sin freely and commit all kinds of evil. :D

Flashing your titty-bitties is not sin nor is it evil

Mardi Gras is French for “Show us your tits!” This is a very old tradition that dates back to Viking times. Pirates were notorious for trickery, and would replace their wooden mascot on the front of their boat with an armed pirate. The pirate ship would pretend to be friendly, nose up to a French boat, then the pirate (which is dressed up to look like a wooden mascot) strapped on the front would throw a flaming tar bomb into the unsuspecting boat. The boat would quickly catch fire, and as people would jump overboard, the pirates would take over the boat and put out the fire. They would then take whatever they wanted, and leave the people stranded in the water, and let the boat drift.

As luck would have it, the word got around that these dastardly pirates were doing this and since pirates weren’t the smartest bunch in the world, these French boats would yell at them from a distance, “Mardi Gras” which is “SHOW US YOUR TITS!!” in French. If there was actually a stupid pirate strapped to the front, pretending to be a piece of carved wood, he would flash his tits without even thinking about it and give himself away. The French boats would then sail away before anyone hurled a tar bomb at them.

I always thought Marti Gras was about cake walks and other gay games.

It’s funny you should ask. May Day began in the early 1800’s when an English lady by the name of May Whintleberry had a flash of inspiration. Bras were not heard of then, so women used to tie heavy cloth around their breasts to keep things from wandering about, and to hide any protruding nipples. May was a rather large woman and she was never comfortable wearing such a cloth. May decided to have her carpenter husband build her a bra out of wood. He carved it to fit her perfectly, sanded it smoothly; the added support was welcome by May, and the hubby loved the way it made May’s bosoms jut out.

Word got around about May’s little invention and women started requesting bras designed just for them. Things went fine for awhile, but as the demand for more bras overwhelmed her husband, his quality control took a nosedive. Women began complaining that they were getting splinters in their breasts, and this was extremely irritating to say the least. The women stopped wearing the wooden bras, but found the clothes they used to wear also irritating while their breasts were healing up from all the splinters.

Women started going bra-less for the first time in the men’s memory. They loved it! Breasts swaying back and forth, nips poking out like crazy, they went nuts! The women loved all the attention, and the men loved the new sites, so it was decided: We’ll name a day after the woman who started all of this, May. We’ll call it May Day.

Remarkable. I wonder how much more of history might be related to breasts than I ever knew? Thank you, Qualthwar, for the enlightening research!
