And now, a Mardis Gras tale.

He was Catholic, she was Protestant, but they were young and in love and it didn't matter.

They planned their wedding around a Mardi Gras honeymoon.

Married on Friday, they spent the weekend in a New Orleans hotel, far too busy with each other to see the sights.

Tuesday night was the Mardi Gras parade, and they had a wonderful time.

Wednesday morning, she pulled him toward her, but he pulled away, and said, "Darling, I'm sorry, but it's Lent."

"Lent?" she cried, "Lent?"

"TO WHO, and for HOW LONG?"
