LSU mocked in Mardi Gras parade.

Le Krewe d'Etat, the satirical New Orleans krewe whose sports-schadenfreude-themed  Mardi Gras parade in 2011 mocked LSU head football coach Les Miles, took another stab at the LSU football program in this year's parade, held last Friday night. This year's parade theme was “d’Etat Tells It Like It Is,” combining songs associated with New Orleans with satirical jabs at both local and national newsmakers and events.

LSU were once again represented this year with a float "honoring" the Bayou Bengals' humiliating defeat to Alabama in the BCS title game. This float was dominated by a larger-than-life paper-mache representation of Bobby Hebert, with the sides of the float mocking Les Miles and events surrounding the game.
