The Evening Post: Mobile / New Orleans Mardi Gras Billboard Twitter Fight

As you know, New Orleans hosts big Mardi Gras parties each year.  But did you know that Mobile started Mardi Gras?  It did!  So, a billboard put up in New Orleans told everyone you are a short drive away from America’s original Mardi Gras.  A picture was tweeted out by Mobile mayor Sandy Stimpson from another Twitter user.

Of course, the people of New Orleans are not going to stand for this!  Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans had to fight back on his Twitter page.

Yep, it’s going to be a very fun Mardi Gras season this year!
