Today In Holidays: International Women's Day PLUS Mardi Gras = Boobies
Hello, it is Mardi Gras! For your editor and "his people," Mardi Gras was a popular day to rent your apartment to some vulgar Texans for the weekend, for like $10,000, and then you and your people would leave town. Maybe go to Biloxi or wherever! Somewhere quiet, where everybody could get over their six or eight weeks of drunkeness leading up to Mardi Gras itself, which is strictly for out-of-town amateurs or people too poor to leave town even when it's flooded.
Also, for the Ladies: It's International Women's Day, to be followed by International Ladies' Night. You won't want to miss our Happy Hour specials. And later, once you're liquored up a bit, we're going to charge $15 at the door for a bunch of schlubs in Members Only jackets to come in and order glasses of beer, like Schlitz or something, if that still exists? It's going to be a good time, or as they say in New Orleans (with a really weird accent, and only once a year), Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez.
Inspired by The Awl's musical video homage to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, here are two videos about a) Mardi Gras and II) International Women's Day. Remember, the "glass ceiling" is really just the anus.
Happy two things!
