  1. Am I the only one who thought there would be a “Morgus” or “Popeye and Pals” reference in there somewhere…?

  2. I have to wear the same costume I wore for Halloween?

    But why can’t we have king cake and crawfish all year?

    Hey Mom, the mosquitos really were chasing me!

    I didn’t know that some folks frown on “ditch food”.

    Whaddya mean there’s no such color as K&B ? (If you’re a NOLA kid, you know what color!)

  3. “I don’t want to walk ALL THE WAY BACK”
    My M.G. Bag is to heavy
    Dad, stop dancing like that
    Haha. Ah, but it’s all soooo worth it. Haga

  4. These were great. The children at my school failed a test because they answered with some of these responses. Administrator was not from New Orleans. One of the questions what do you do with a ladder? They said catch beads. Administrator was nice rescored based on our culture. Only in New Orleans.
