Happy Fat Tuesday!
Posted by Christine Hurt

I just realized that if tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, then today is Fat Tuesday!  This was one of my favorite days at my law firm in Houston because our "local counsel" in New Orleans would send our department a King Cake!  Because of the perpetuation of their arcane set of laws, attorneys in Louisiana are able to extract "local counsel" rents, but they were very generous in sending us a cake once a year to say "thank you"!

For my Wisconsin friends, a King Cake is similar to a Kringle, except it's gawdier and has a Baby Jesus baked inside.  (In the South, "gawdy" and "religious" are not mutually exclusive.)
