Even though I have seen some *very* drunk males at the St. Louis Mardi Gras celebrations, can somebody please tell me that, when many young females put *two* beers into themselves, they suddenly go deaf (and they try to make everybody around them deaf, too, by yelling instead of talking!), and they look and act confused as Hell?

I lived near the intersection of Menard & Allen for 5 years, and due to severe temperatures, I have missed only one Mardi Gras parade in 19 years.

While I do everything within my power to avoid the young, testosterone-filled drunk males, the yelling, staggering and sloppy females with contorted, confused faces leave good company to be desired, too - if you know what I mean.  :D
