Last month, Captain Oscar Diggs announced and tweeted, “THIS YEAR krewedelusion WILL NOT APPOINT A BENEVOLENT RULER!”  Instead our celebration in the streets of New Orleans will be an uprising of the people governed by a radical reorganization of our current administration.

On only a fistful of occasions throughout history, usually due to outbreaks of global warfare and famously in 1979 due to police strike, some or all New Orleans Mardi Gras Krewes have decided not to parade.  However, to the best of our research, knowledge and belief, and according to our current Ruler, King Bragadocious, “Mr. Mardi Gras” Blaine Kern Sr., no Carnival Krewe has ever hit the streets without royalty.
