Actually, now that I'm looking at the reconstruction of the sign, it woulda been more y'at if it said "Recall Dat Eddie Jordan". "Recall Da Eddie" is more Brooklyn than working-class New Orleans.
Other weird signs I've seen were ones for state senatorial candidates in the St John Parish area. It was a tad bizarre seeing massive signs up for a woman with the unfortunate name of Geri Broussard-Baloney. It was even more bizarre to see signs like this that seriously emphasized the last part of that hyphenated name:
Dan thought it might be a case of Keeping Up Appearances - perhaps "Baloney" is pronounced "Bah-low-NAY". Yeah, and the candidate's name isn't a twist of fate, but a calculated stab at honesty in political campaigning. Uh-huh.
Oh, and there were some important water safety tips learned at camp this week.
It was established early this morning that not a one of us counselors could lend a paddle or an oar to the head of the swim program for use in his boat safety demonstrations. We just aren't in the habit of carrying any around. "And I must say that absolutely NONE of us are up a creek," I said to the man.
Most important water safety tip learned: when one is fully clothed and wearing a toga in a canoe, and said canoe gets overturned, the toga makes a great flotation device. Really.
