With the news of Ray Nagin's quarantine, some are pleading with China to hang on to old Ray there for a bit (all in good fun, of course!~)
The Crescent City has enough problems without having to worry about a Nagin generated Swine Flu epidemic. In fact, Mayor Nagin has caused many of the city's current problems, so it is only appropriate that he stay out of the city for the remainder of his term. During his 11 month quarantine, Nagin can return to health and the City of New Orleans can recover from another serious disease, the Nagin Flu.
The symptoms of the Nagin Flu are quite severe and multi-faceted. They include a lack of cranes in the sky, an anemic hurricane recovery, a poor public education system, horrific street conditions, rampant violent crime, boneheaded comments from City Hall, outlandish promises that are never kept, too many city vehicles, not enough working crime cameras, a strip club loving technology director, an email obsessed and arrogant sanitation director, and a disillusioned and disgusted populace just to name a few. Clearly if there is a disease as dangerous as the Swine Flu, it is the Nagin Flu.
In fact, the Nagin Flu has infected 465,000 people, the pre-Katrina population of New Orleans, which is even more people than the Swine Flu has afflicted. Sadly, the victims of the Nagin Flu have been mostly concentrated in the City of New Orleans. Other cities have benefited from the Nagin Flu as our citizens and businesses have flocked to other areas during the seven year duration of this epidemic.
Greta Perry, over at Kiss My Gumbo, is collecting Nagin jokes if you have any!
