This week's rundown incidentally is another true "#NOLA Twitter" starter pack: getting mad online at people who are bad at traveling to New Orleans, parades, football, and lukewarm Jazz Fest takes. Plus: a fun Tide Pod fact.

Y@ Speak: 'tis the season

Posted By on Mon, Jan 8, 2018 at 7:45 PM

You can eat the king cake now. But in your heart you know you've always been able to eat the cake. Don't let anyone tell you, "You can't eat the cake." The cake is yours, it always will be yours, and the fate of the universe does not depend on you not eating the cake. But it's cake time now. You're safe. Enjoy.

We'll figure out what's next but this is our pledge.
