Throw me something, Mister!




Happy Mardi Gras from the Mistick Krewe de Grinch where the saying "Eat, drink, and be merry, because tomorrow we all die" applies to every day, not just the Fat Tuesday before Lent.
C'mon cheres, loosen up, have yourself some fun.
It's Mardi Gras!

I've always wondered, what does "Throw me something, Mister!" mean?

Dude,
You've heard of Mardi Gras parades, right? As the floats pass by, it's traditional to yell "Throw me something, Mister!" to the people on the float who are tossing beads and other trinkets into the crowd. The object is to get lots and lots of beads.
In addition to yelling for beads, females are encouraged to "Show me something!"
