Saw young man at lunch today who brought a King Cake he'd bought at Wal Mart. Travesty! Shame! Horror!

Sometimes I wonder why I try.....

    Cher, I just ate a big ol hunk of an unfilled king cake from WalMart and it was tasty. Miles better, frankly, than the goopy, overfilled, puddingy monstrosities churned out by more famed king cake bakers 'round town.

      & only in NO could you get a King cake at Walmart...the rest of us have got to bake them ourselves.

        Well, not yet, please. I feel like going into the place and burning myhrr in protest.

        be an interesting trial, I gotta admit.

          It is clear you are frankly incensed. Truth be gold, I agree.

                There is bound to be a "manger/manger" joke in here somewhere (English/French)
