I'm against it.
Art: Detail from "The Conflict Between Carnival and Lent" - Pieter Bruegel. Few people realize that the central figure depicted here is actually a portrait of a man named Marti Grau, who happened to be a favorite dance partner of Bruegel's mother at every Shrove Tuesday celebration, before and after her husband died. Long story short - the term Mardi Gras is derived from the name of Mrs. Bruegel's paramour, Marti Grau. That said, their story is much too ribald to repeat here today, I'm afraid.
