Some Hurricane Highlights

I can't really offer any, because it's not even going to rain here in Austin, but I did want to make light of a few AP photos and mention to the fine people of Galveston, Corpus Christi, Houston, and surrounding areas that I hope you're safe and damage is minimal (I know it's not and you probably don't even have electricity to even be on the internet or read my blog in the first place, but I do hope you're safe.) before I mock these pics....

What's that thing your grandmother was always saying about clean underwear? You never know when a photo journalist will take a picture of you in your finest hour and blast it all over the internets. (At least you've got good legs....)



Glad to see the Bush Hurricane Readiness Plan is working.



"Where the hell's mah goddamned mail?"



This one's just to piss off my parents.



"We regret to inform you that due to Hurricane Ike, the November elections have been canceled. We're doing our best to get your power up and running, so you can get back to your TVs. Then, we'll tell you what John McCain thinks you should do next."

You forgot to add, "and by the way, let me introduce you to your next president. Sorry we didn't tell you about that secret amendment ruled constitutional by Sammy the Bull, Uncle Clarence and Pretty Boy John."

LOL @ everything you said. And, I am a little scared that what Randal said may actually come to pass.

Glad to know that you and Austin is relatively dry and safe.

"Heckava job, Brownie!"

Everyone else, just hold tight. If the hurricane doesn't get you, the formaldehyde will.

Did you see Geraldo almost get blown into the bay off Galveston on the news last night? He managed to hold on, which officially makes me an atheist.

That last picture was the scariest one of all.

I thought the media-driven hyperbole of natural disasters couldn't get any worse or exploitative.

I was wrong.

Ack! If he thinks that it's bad having to wade through 3-feet of water to get his mail, think about the guy that has to deliver it!
