Commenter VaguelyCreepy had a few notes on Mardi Gras beads that are probably good to keep close to this page:

A few notes on the Mardi Gras beads:
  1. They come in all colors, so pink isn’t particularly unusualy, though it could still fit if the doctor specifically chose that color for that reason.
  2. New Orleans natives really frown on that kind of behavior, and you usually only see it from tourists who think Mardi Gras is some kind of excuse to do whatever you like. The entire thing is a celebration, but if you act like an ass, people are going to hate you for it, and you may very well get arrested. Also, the beads, as well as a variety of other memorabilia, are thrown to everyone, including the women who keep their tops on.

That's all. lcarsos (talk) 07:58, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm removing the line, "In this case, the beads are pink, likely a reference to the Pink ribbon campaign related to Breast cancer awareness." The beads aren't pink, they're clearly purple. 19:21, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

I have an app which identifies them as pink (I'm colorblind, so I can't personally pass judgement). The pink beads would definitely make sense. 06:33, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm no expert, but if you open the image in Paint, zoom and use the eye-dropper, the color is definitely purple to the eye. My sample was (R,G,B => 175,68,173). It is not uniform, but other samples were similar. 22:49, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
I tried that too! I got 168 45 166. Most purple-y color I've ever seen. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
They look purple to me--SeventyAce (talk) 22:04, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

They looked pink to me until I read these comments now they look lilac (Compare the analysis chart to the forecast charts on: [Damn, I think they changed that too!!][1])
