Local Victim of Rita

When we broke camp and moved, due to Rita, I didn't realize we were going to cause some local problems. I believe this fellow had been trying to homestead under a corner of my tent...

I'm thinking that little fellow must be looking for a roach motel.

I'm a strong, black woman who has worked my way up to where I am and will continue to work my way up, and I just don't see anything racist in Mr. Reynold' linking to this post. In fact, I check Instapundit on the hour to see what's new. Methinks you're a bit paranoid, oliver bush.

Of course, to people like OHB These Things Are Much Too Important To Make Jokes About.

(That really ought to be an acronym, except that it would be totally unpronounceable: TTAMTITMJA.)

Folks - keep it civil in here or I am going to turn the comments off. I don't tell Professor Reynolds what to post, and nobody tells me what to post. This is a simple joke about a bug that was living under my tent. Sheesh.

Oh, and by the way: a "racist" is anyone who is winning an argument with a lefty. (A "sexist" is anyone who is winning an argument with a woman.)

BTW - I am honored that Mr. Den Beste actually left a comment on my blog! I miss him blogging.

Mr. den Beste, with all due respect: I'm a woman, so if I win an argument with another woman, I'm most definitely not a sexist. I don't think.

Actually, you all missed the point. I think it's pretty obvious these hurricanes and floods are just a coverup for the invasion of the Alien Cockroaches.

That cockroach has a better sense of humor than some people. He's probably a poetry afficionado.

I think you are all a bunch of mammalist bigots.

Someday, all creatures will be judged by the content of their character, not by whether they have an exoskeleton.

I can't help but hear this in my head:

"You are worthless Alex Baldwin, you are worthless Alex Baldwin...."

It didn't have an accent and tell you that you were breaking it's balls, did you?

This is a plea for money to save minority and poor bugs left behind to die in Rita's path by an uncaring heartless Bush administration. The money will be well spent by me and my personal photographer on a non-leaky boat.

Thank you.

The news gets worse. There were over 600 garbage cans available to the local and state governments that could have floated these refugees to safety. Now they are all under water.

Man, now I wish I knew what OHB said -- I need a laugh.

Mr. den Beste,

A slight adjustment: "Much Too Important To Make Jokes About" abbreviates to MTITMJA. Pronounced, "em-tit-em-ja."

Or perhaps better -- "em-tit-em-ja... NOT!" With the cadence of a rimshot.

cathy :-)
