Remembering Katrina, Vol. 1

reservoir tip: Yiddish Steel

A message to all you Instapundit cult members:

You know, last time you came by, you just popped in, used us and went on your way. Really, we felt like Christina Applegate after an afternoon in the 20th Century Fox parking lot in Studio Century City.

This time, why don’t you bookmark us? I mean, what have you got to lose but about 1K? We occasionally do some funny/offensive/interesting/stupid stuff. Sometimes there’s even some good writing here (that’s usually Smantix). Take a look at some of our “classics” down there on the lower right hand side to get a taste of some of our Grade-A quality blog backwash.

Let’s be frank – you always say you’ll call, but you never do. That hurts.

Also: Feel free to contribute your own Katrina: One Year Later memories. Smantix has started us off pretty well in the comments. I’ll throw another out: The Official Survivor: Katrina Board Game that we debuted last Christmas. That one’s chock full of Katrina memories – The Concentration Camp Causeway being just one of many.

FYI – If anyone knows who actually did the above photoshop that Yiddish Steel sent me, let me know so I can give proper credit…

UPDATE: At your service…

After suckin’ up like that, I’m feeling like Christina Applegate again.

Oh, speaking of her, if this site goes down due to the bandwidth crunch, we’ve got a backup – http://sixmeatbuffet.blogspot.com.

UPDATE: YS tells me the photoshop was done by his co-worker Kurt. We may have to give him a full-time, unpaid internship with skills like that!

  1. Wait…I’ve seen this guy before! Oh…that’s right, he was helping people out of the rubble…of the Northridge earthquake back in ’94!

    Or was it the LA Riots?

    Can’t remember, maybe it was both. But he’s one hell of a guy!

    No, No Billy, he’s the guy seen rescuing 99 of the same dead children in Lebanon last month.

  3. “hate to bring up the obvious, but Heineken is Dutch beer, not German.”

    We deeply regret this oversight and are frankly, quite disappointed that Smantix made this rookie mistake.

    He is subject to disciplinary action up to and possibly including termination.

  4. Heineken, because it is shipped around the world, has a lot of preservatives in it. It is an ok lager, but the additives are nasty and the stuff gives headaches the next day.

    Like those Katrina survivors did not have enough to deal with–warm beer and extraordinary hangovers!

  5. Now that we’ve gotten our asses unexpectedly instalanched, I should probably point out that this is NOT an original work. Yiddish Steel emailed it to me – if anyone knows the author, please let me know so that I can give credit where it’s due!

  6. The reason why this picture is not believable is because the bin contains Heineken. If it contained Molson it would be believable. Who the hell would save a Heineken?

    Now you know how we really feel about you.

    Kinda like a public toilet, except the PT smells better.

  9. If you really want to know why you get less traffic then you might like try rating the quality, and thought involved in, the comments posted on your board.

  12. This thread can’t pass without at least a nod to the memory of the roving death squads who ambushed, dismembered, and then wore the untanned hides of rescue and hospital workers. Or George Bush’s vivisection of drowning kittens, or Nightline having baby harp seals flown in to be clubbed at the scene.

  13. You know, you all need to be more respectful. How often in history has one city been the only city blown away by a hurricane? I mean, when that hurricane came in, it nailed N.O. straight on, stayed right over it, and then disappeared not touching even a tree outside of the county. We need to remember all those who were trapped and unable to leave the city because of the dike walls surrounding it like a concentration camp. We must also remember the failed attempts by the engineers of that fine city to place it under the ocean so that damage like this could never happen again. Yeah, sure, they were able to lower the city several feet below the sea level, but more needs to be done. This is where the federal government can play a very secretive and key role in providing funds and media coverage. With the governments help and yours, N.O will never rise above again.

  14. or…

    Is it time to start building domed-cities?

    oh wait, the lefties would love that toooo much as it would almost predicate massive federal control, spending, welfare, contracts for vast in numbers and size of mass transit services so that people can get in and out of the few portals.

  15. smantix…I hate to bring up the obvious, but Heineken is Dutch beer, not German.

    ““
    Yea, I’ve brought up enough of it, it’s obvious.
