Les Miles as a Mardi Gras float? Les Miles as a Mardi Gras float

Great. I had a dream last night where I was being maimed by a playful Mike the Tiger, and now this shows up. It must have been a sign straight from the Gates of Horn out of the Dreaming.

The Mad Hatter at the mast of a Mardi Gras float rising up from a cloud of purple smoke. I'd like to see what the masses in Rio do to try to top this one. (And no, having Tom Brady and his alleged "ponytail" show up in town doesn't cut it, Brasil.)

The Miles float was a part of the Krewe d'Etat's annual Mardi Gras parade held last Firday. The Krewe specializes in floats that skewer the scandalous people and events of the previous year. The theme this year was "Wild World of Sports," but that didn't stop them from going after targets such as  Lil' Wayne and the state of Arizona's illegal aliens crackdown. This was the parade that also gave us that Brett Favre float you may have heard about.  So expect Charlie Sheen float in the parade next year.
