Well today Super Tuesday meets Fat Tuesday...
Per Wikipedia, Super Tuesday is the Tuesday in early February or March of a presidential election year when the greatest number of states hold primary elections to select delegates to national conventions at which each party's presidential candidates are officially nominated. Minnesota is one of those states this year.
Per Wikipedia again, Fat Tuesday is the final day of Carnival, though the term is often used incorrectly to describe the days and weeks preceding Fat Tuesday.
So, who's getting your beads?
