Here's one for our compendium of Katrina humor:
A number of years ago, a bizarrely brilliant toy showed up on the scene, Cajun in Your Pocket, a little, talking keychain that, when you pressed the buttons, said things like "We gonna pass a good time, yah, chere!" and "I love you like a pig loves corn!" all delivered in thick Cajun-speak. It became a local mini-sensation. The makers followed it up with equally genius creations like Mr. T in Your Pocket.
And now they've done it again, giving the world the simultaneously hilarious and disconcerting Mayor in Your Pocket which delivers impassioned sound bites from Nagin's famed post-Katrina radio interview such as "Get their asses movin' to New Orleans!" and "Excuse my French, everybody in America, but I... am... pissed!"
Is a toy supposed to give you the chills? I don't know, but this one does.
Note: They're not paying me to say this. I merely feel compelled to give evil geniuses their due.
