In reply to I saw the FEMA float at Mardi Gras, posted by Bobby on February 27, 2006, at 16:39:57
That's funny. I heard it didn't make it to New Orleans in time. It was on a lot in Hope, Arkansas waiting for the paperwork to come through.
The lot owner says that he's happy to continue to receiving the $10,000 a month to have it parked there, but he'd rather see it go to where people are standing in the street with boxes of beads and plastic cups but nowhere to throw them from.
And I heard tell of a float dressed like a giant duct taped fridge art refrigerator. But that might have just been a wild rumor. I'd hate to think of the throws. ;)
