Yes, this was thrown from a Mardi Gras float.

A family member recently caught this at a parade in New Orleans and it has me scratching my head.

As you can see in the photo above, the prize resembles a very popular emoji (the poop emoji).

It's more like a sponge or toy, but how do you feel about this being thrown to kids during parades? Would you rather this NOT be thrown or are you fine with this type joke/prank?

I mean, Mardi Gras parades are known for odd throws and prizes, but would I be wrong if I threw this from out float on Fat Tuesday?

I'd like your opinion. Let me know what you think of this "throw." Honestly, I chuckled when I saw this and now I can't get it away from our 8-year-old.
