On Fat Tuesday

New Orleans is still a mess — federal grants are running out, people scattered everywhere are homeless, contribute something if you can — but nothing keeps the city from celebrating Mardi Gras in style. Even the tittie cams are up. (NSFW as the day progresses.)

Also, just in time for Fat Tuesday, a Scottish distillery has announced that it’s reviving “a centuries-old recipe for whisky so strong that one 17th-century writer feared more than two spoonfuls could be lethal.” We’re talking a 184-proof beverage.

The way the day job’s been going, and after losing a flash drive with a week’s worth of writing on it, I’ll take three spoonfuls, please. (A.P. photo via SubIntSoc.)
