4/5 ehh. I missed the Popeyes question. A lot of people don't realize this, but Mardi Gras originated in my town- Mobile, AL in 1703. Here is a link to the history of it if anyone is interested!!! http://www.mobile.org/vis_mardigras_history.php I highly recommend visiting Mobile for Mardi Gras if it is your first time- New Orleans can be overwhelming. lol

3/5.. I don't know anything about Mardi Gras, I only learned about the baby in king cake today at lunch when I got a slice in the cafeteria and the lady said there was a plastic baby in it somewhere.

It's a plastic baby Jesus. (they have warning labels now so that people do not choke.) Although, you would have to be inhaling a whole piece to choke on it. The baby is pretty large.I love the last question. "allowed" sounds funny. Like you have to have tickets or something to go to a parade. :) I got the popeyes question wrong, oh well.

ilanac13--in my class, we hid the baby in it but someone almost choked on it. I'm guessing a bean would be a lot safer.

i guess i really don't know much at all. i remember in french class we would make the cake and always hide a bean in it, but not a toy...interesting.
