Today, some people will go to church and rub ashes mixed with oil on their foreheads. It’s a sign of repentance and reminds us that life is short so they need to be serious.
Yesterday some of those same people concluded Mardi Gras, which is a major celebration with parades, costumes, food, drink, and the flashing of boobs (mostly women’s). It’s a way of reminding people that life is short and they need to quit being so serious.
You got any beads?
