And I tell you what - Mainz went through copious quantities of this stuff on Monday
Monday being Rosenmontag - Rose Monday: the culmination of Karneval.
Day before yesterday - Fat Tuesday in New Orleans, Shrove Tuesday and Pancake Tuesday pretty much everywhere else - is the last day to really pig out before yesterday - Ash Wednesday - when you start doing penance for all your excesses.
Like consuming copious quantities of this stuff.
Something like that, anyway...
