Comical Mardi Gras feud between Mobile and New Orleans mayors continue

The comical Mardi Gras feud between the mayors of Mobile and New Orleans continues. Both Sandy Stimpson and Mitch Landrieu have battled on twitter to see who can host the best Mardi Gras. 

It started with a billboard that Alabama tourism bought in New Orleans, telling folks that they were only 114 miles away from America's original Mardi Gras. 

On Tuesday during a proclamation, Mayor Stimpson pointed out Mardi Gras all started in Mobile. He said, "As the 108th Mayor of the city of Mobile in Alabama, do hereby grant full authorization to the city of New Orleans and any other revelers, crew members, and any other mystic societies to participate in the grand tradition this carnival season done at the city of Mobile, Alabama at the 6th day of February 2018, let the good times roll." 

No response yet from Mayor Landrieu, but he has been active on twitter since the beginning of the battle.
