Could you imagine a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans without Mardi Gras beads? Well, some people want the beads eliminated from parades in NOLA.

Yes, there is an on line petition circulating that has garnished over 14,000 signatures and it calls for the city to ban Mardi Gras beads from it's parades!

If you recall, the city of New Orleans recently pulled TONS of beads from it's drains and some have contributed the city's drainage issue to the beads clogging the drains.

The petition also cites that Mardi Gras beads can be toxic. Yes, who knew?

What do you think? Will the city recognize this petition and eliminate what THOUSANDS want for the festivities or will this just overlook it?
