One Can Never Be Too Old To Be Stupid

Yet another fuckmook hates New Orleans, and he’s 80 years old. (And he was a cub reporter for the T-P, yucko.)
Some people… *shakes head* can always find a way to piss the living freakin’ Hell out of me. I think I’ll rant on this later.
Curtsey to New Orleans Ladder.

Sinn Fein

Update- Seems the piece was actually a satire and a play on words. I over-reacted since I wasn’t in the humorous way last evening.


  1. You my friend, are an idiot. The site you are so upset about is a parody news blog. The author is obviously full of shit. Do you call Stephen Colbert up every time he makes fun of something you like.

    But regardless of the fact that the post is entirely made up, it in no way even says anything ill about New Orleans. It does however make fun of douchebags. Are you a douchebag? Then why are you upset? Nowhere in the post does the author state anything negative about any aspect of the city with the exception of calling Nagin a douchebag. Do you disagree?

    Do you disagree that there are a large number of douchebags that come to New Orleans for Mardi Gras every year? If so, perhaps I spent a significant portion of my life living in the other New Orleans. My wife, who grew up in New Orleans, went to Mount Carmel, has multiple family members that lost homes in Katrina, and absolutely loves the city, found nothing at all in that post that was offensive to New Orleanians. Did you even read the post are just listen what someone else told you about it?

    As they say in New Orleans, “Get a fucking clue.”

  2. Didn’t read as satire to me, especially as my skin is getting way to thin trying to get things put aright here, but maybe you are right.

    BTW- I’ll take idiot over douchebag any day.

    I’m glad you are enjoying life in the “City that Care Forgot”. The time I spent as a cub reporter for the Picayunne were memorable for their utter misery. The only thing I can claim that I gained from my four years in training in that wretched sinkhole filler were a solid education and a wife.

    To learn more about douchebags, I’d pick up Vandervoort’s book on their history.

    I also question the wisdom of rebuilding the city, which didn’t have much to offer before the hurricane and now it has less. People are too hung up on the idea of New Orleans but unfortunately the emperor is naked.


    Thank you for so clearly illustrating how a douchebag might respond to a post like this.

    You are of course more than welcome to get your news from one of the biased mainstream media outlets, who are afraid to bring the news that really matters to the people.

    You get a fucking clue yourself, Monique. Doesn’t sound like satire to me either, but you are certainly a joke.
    Don’t try to lecture me about sense of humor. I was living in New Orleans when the levees failed. Where the hell were you?

  5. It’s parody, yeah, but of what? I’m not feeling the love here, either, G.G.

  6. **Out of character**

    I wrote this post for several reasons:

    1. At lot of people living in any city, and New Orleans is no exception, are douchebags. Visiting Bourbon street on any night of the week, especially around Mardi Gras, will allow one to experience this. There are a lot of college kids, med students (hey, I was one so I know), law students, drunks, etc, etc that are douchebags and like to hit the Quarter to get wasted and hook up. They often act like douchebags when they do this. There will be much more of this during Mardi Gras. I may be one of them as my mother-in-law, a lifelong resident, got a room on St. Charles.

    2. I read an old article yesterday about how New Orleans is expected to reach 65% of pre-Katrina population in early 2008. I was inspired, but I could have written that post about any city because all apply. Douchebags are everywhere and they are multiplying like bunnies.

    3. Nagin is a douchebag.

    On a personal note, I lived in New Orleans for 4 years during my medical school training after growing up in Baton Rouge. I hated New Orleans, I really did. It was not for me. I moved to Nashville afterwards and fell in love with the place. They are very different cities. To each there own. But honestly, why does it bother you so much that there are people that don’t like New Orleans. It is a personal opinion. I also do not enjoy sundried tomatos.

    If you are able to relax about the anti-New Orleans stuff, and I can understand where you are coming from dealing with what had befallen the city, I think you will see that the post does not really say anything bad about New Orleans. It makes fun of douchebags in general and does not say that everyone living in New Orleans is one. The only reasonable way you should be offended by the post is if you are in fact a douchebag. I doubt that you are but I wonder about NONL and the jackass that wants the fictional character of Zoo Knudsen dead.

  7. Zoo, thanks for your words concerning this.

    Having fought long and hard to fix our home (thereby turning it into a state of the art fortress) and working to help neighborhoods get back on their feet and rebuild in the right fashion, I just get testy when I think someone’s putting us down.

    This is a good city, good folks, some extreme problems, and most of us here get to Bourbon Street once or twice a year. My families have been here since the place was first founded. I’m proud to be a Native.

    So our place may not be your cup of tea… that’s okay. I have lived all over this country, some places were my cup of tea, many weren’t, but I try not to demonize those folks. Different strokes for different folks as the old bromide goes.

    I can see now that you were playing with a noun… actually is pretty good having read it over many times. The piece wasn’t a slap at those of us down here busting our tushes. I apologize for my over-reaction, but I’ve given my reasons above.

  8. A Funk,

    In general, my site is a parody of mainstream local news articles, mostly on science and health, with a very skeptical bent. Read through the old stuff and I think you’ll get it. Not every post works out, obviously, but when you try to put one out every day it is sometimes hard to come up with an angle.

    By the way, I got engaged over charbroiled oysters and jacque Imo’s is my favorite restaurant. Hana had the best sushi I’ve ever eaten and I spent several hours a month at Kanpai. I lived for a year down the street from Jesuit and then Uptown on Octavia for 3 years. I wasn’t there for Katrina but my wife’s family lost their homes and had to live in Tickfaw for several months 20 people in one house.


    I don’t care where you were when the levees broke. Even taking into account that writing under a pseudonym on the internet with no accountability usually leads to people acting differently than they would in person, you are an ass.

  9. Zoo,

    If you come down here, I’d like to treat you to Little Tokyo… sushi that just melts in your mouth.

    That or I’ll make you a dinner that will blow your mind.
