There's a tradition, especially in New Orleans, to have a King Cake during Mardi Gras. It's a festive cake with a small, plastic baby hidden inside which will bring you luck if you find it. This tradition has translated into the horrifying King Cake Baby, a mascot brought out around Mardi Gras season by the New Orleans Pelicans.

This is coming from an NBA team who recently gave their year round mascot "plastic surgery" to make his face a little less scary.
