Tomorrow is the "Tuesday" in Fat Tuesday. King cakes are being baked, boxes of beads are being sold, bras are being left at home.
As people get ready for the parades and wild abandon of Mardi Gras, they're taking to Twitter to announce their intentions and scope out the action.
We'll start you off with this one from the inimitable Dr. Ruth...
Mardi Gras is next week. How are all of you going to earn your beads?
