Fat Tuesday (?)

Sure ... why not!

Could there BE a more appropriate "Fat Tuesday" song to celebrate Mardi Gras and New Orleans???

Of course it was Dick Clark's wife who named this former chicken-plucker, based on the success of Mr. Domino above.
(Remember a year or two ago when Chubby sued some phone app company because they came up with a device that women could download to their phones and then, while out looking for companionship at night could aim the thing at their desired quest and the app would gauge the size of the guy's penis?!?!?  
They called it "The Chubby Checker" ... and ol' Earnest Evans was none to happy about it!!!
Kind of an interesting "twist" to his notoriety, no???

Wrapping it up with Weird Al ...

Pig out today, people ... you KNOW you want to!!!

Mardi Gras, which is French for “Fat Tuesday,” is the last day of a season called “Carnival.” The Carnival season is characterized by merrymaking, feasting, and dancing. Mardi Gras is the culmination of festivities and features parades, masquerades, and, unfortunately, often drunkenness and shameless debauchery. Carnival is typically celebrated in Catholic countries of southern Europe and Latin America.
The excess of Carnival may not seem to have much in common with the austerity of Lent, but the two seasons are inseparable. The day after Fat Tuesday is Ash Wednesday; therefore, the end of Carnival is followed immediately by the beginning of Lent. Lent is a time of fasting and penance in preparation for Easter. Carnival, then, can rightly be seen as the indulgence before the fast. It is one last “binge” before having to give something up for 40 days.
