Hyatt Hotel on the left with many broken windows. The sign says, "We are With You New Orleans. Laissez les bons temps roulez encore."
On the right is the Superdome.

Costume your troubles

People on the street wear costumes along the parade route on Mardi Gras. This year, lots of people dressed as ruined refrigerators. And FEMA idiots. Two women had wig form heads attached to their bottoms and signs saying they were FEMA with their heads up their asses. Here are some of the other people on the streets waiting for the Rex parade on Mardi Gras.

"Mr. Mayor, the devil made me do it."

"Bushie, YOU did a helluva job!"

"Free refrigerator. Sir Stinks a Lot"

"Screw Fallujah. Save New Orleans"

Garbage Bra-Gade

Mardi Gras fabulous

Thoth Parade, bead throwers and catchers

Just some people walking down the street

Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas on St. Charles before the Rex parade.

Actor Josh Hartnett threw beads from a float.

Rex Parade on Tuesday

Some more people just walking down the street

A 20-foot-tall Ignatius Reilly from the Confederacy of Dunces is holding a hot dog. He was in the Rex Parade.

Hold up your hands during a parade and you can get as many beads as you ever could want.
