Le Krewe d’Etat 2008

Le Krewe d’Etat 2008 rolled Friday evening with the theme “Le Krewe d’Etat’s Dirty Dishes.” The satire this year was served up in gastronomical terms. Once again, no one was spared. President Bush (Blame Duck Gumbo) and Hillary (Left Wing Fried Chicken Special) covered the national political scene while Brittany and Paris and Lindsay (Pop Tarts) covered the tabloids. Eddie Jordan (Deep Fried Turkey), Mayor Ray Nagin (Fudge Nutty Brownie), failed politicos Boasso, Blanco and Willard-Lewis (Leftovers) and scandalized David Vitter (Whore D’Oeuvres) covered the local scene. Last year the Dancing Marinellos cracked us all up; this year it was the Dancin’ Dawgfighters having fun at Michael Vick’s expense.

Throws this year included the famous blinking skull and also a clear squishy blinking High Priest doll.

And a Skull Shall Lead Them:



Bulletins posted along the route gave notice of the krewe’s intents, including a command performance by the Dancin’ Dawgfighters:



The Skeleton Krewe hands out bulletins in advance of the route.

And I scored a buttload of blinkies thanks to the guys on Float 12

    I LOVED the floats. I couldn’t stop laughing. It is a good thing, because I didn’t catch ONE throw from any of the floats. I felt unloved. 😉
