We’re NOT EVEN GOING TO ADDRESS the “Game Warden” thing

Posted by Lizzie on 09/01/05

My great project this morning, besides trying prevent my skull from splitting in two over stuff like this, was prying a confession from the BOOG that, in the event of such a tragedy, he, as is his daily habit in any case, would be “liberating the beer”* as well.

Then we saw these. In rain, sleet, or snow, fine. In order to escape rising flood waters (as the photo’s caption clearly states)? Not so much.

Of course, with all of the water shortages and dead bodies floating around, you don’t want to fuck with people getting their Victoria’s Secret catalogs safely, too. But to be fair, I’m not sure the “bar owner with gun” image ultimately can be put to use as the backdrop for Bush’s next speech, either.

All images taken from NOLA’s photo galleries, which we highly recommend. Sorry if the text and photos are screwy; we don’t know how to make them fit the right way.

  1. The most distressing aspect of these photos? The bar guy is wearing a Buckcherry tour shirt. I can almost hear the conversation he had as he evacuated his house:
    “Honey, I’m not leaving without my Buckcherry shirt. Those guys got me through a lot of hard times when I was kicking the yayo and I gotta represent.”

  2. Hag: You’re unethical, it seems:

    “Obviously stealing things like TV sets or beer or any items that aren’t crucial for survival, that’s a nonstarter,” said Mark Bernstein, a professor of applied ethics at Purdue University. “There would be no ethicist in the country that would think that’s proper behavior.”

  5. I would like to announce that in a similar situation I would also steal tv’s, furniture, clothes, jewelry (I don’t even wear it, but I would snatch it up nevertheless, out of spite). Put it on record.

  6. Rehnquist dead. There’s a lot of money to be made in suicide booths.

  7. I steal out of spite in 70 degree weather. I don’t know what the big deal is. Goddamn if there were a working mail truck in dirty water I would be clicking on the little golf-cart key on that shit.
