Some people know that many Mardi Gras krewes are named after Greek gods, and some people know that there are a number of Greek gods that have Roman equivalents.  Your friend is someone who knows both those facts, and apparently many others.  Instead of just giving you a list of their favorite parades, they’ve given you a series of cryptic clues.  To be honest, you probably want to avoid hanging out with them in the future, but they promised you a prize if you can figure out which parades they’ll be at.  So why not take a stab at it.

 

Organize their list of favorites and take the specified letter to spell out their very favorite parade of all! Enter that at the end of DeLaporteBrainbuster.com/ to continue.

Clue

- It doesn’t matter if you take the red or the blue pill, the parade named after Laurence Fishburne’s character in the Matrix is a dream.

- The parade named for the greek equivalent of this Kree geneticist from Captain Marvel is a great all-female parade!  

- Obviously you’ll find them at the parade with the same name as “an extremely handsome young man”

- The parade named for the greek equivalent for mono-nitrogen oxides is not as science-y as it seems.

- They will definitely be at the parade named after the Greek equivalent of atomic number 80

- Find them at the Greek equivalent of the part in your eye that surrounds the pupil

- This parade is out of town these days, which may be a reason for complaint (in spanish.) But it’s worth the trip!

- It’s a little out of the way, but the parade named for the Greek equivalent for the furthest (currently accepted) planet from the sun in our solar system has great throws!
