During the celebration of Mardi Gras,
the phrase "Hey mister, throw me
something!" is heard often.

It is customary to throw doubloons
or beads in the Mardi Gras colors
of green, gold and purple.

Celebrants try to see who can
catch the most beads - and some
bare their bodies as an
inducement.

Much of the revelry of Mardi Gras
takes place behind masks.  A wide
variety of masks - feathered, plain,
jeweled, ceramic, etc. are seen
during the Mardi Gras celebration
