Mardi Gras aka Taco Tuesday on Steroids (with Boobs)

           Oh Mardi Gras, how you epitomize the continuing notion that the world is still run by men. The time of the year where it is completely acceptable for a woman to sacrifice her dignity for 3 cents worth of plastic beads. While enjoying a Mardi Gras celebration at my local watering hole, Sneak Joint in Mission Beach, I literally saw women's equality set back about 9 decades when a female patron lifted her shirt to show her fun-bags as a means to acquire the plastic beads around my neck. To be fair, she had a separate goal: $100 to the woman with the most beads by the end of the night (SPOILER: This girl lost). Now, I gave up my beads because, well, I couldn't say no. Also, I was wearing this T-Shirt at the time:


(Pictured: My greatest $15 investment, ever.) 


          Giving away beads on Mardi Gras is a form of a unilateral contract: Men offer beads and the only way that offer can be accepted is by women flashing their baby feeders. In essence, I was obligated to give up some beads. But this begs the question of how I received my beads. Free. I received them for free. They were passed out earlier in the night. There may not be such thing as a free lunch but free "shows" do exist and I was a witness to one (or 6 since I kept surplus beads in my back pocket until the ones around my neck ran out).

Good stuff, and perfect choice of shirt.

Rhetoric-Nazi says: It raises the question, but it doesn't beg it. 'Begging the question' is when an answer essentially does nothing but restate the question.

She might just argue that she had no dignity to begin with...!
