And sugar plums too?

"It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans — the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans."

-Mayor Ray Nagin

Is it going to be like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory? Will there be oompa loompa's?

From now on, he's Ray "Chocolate Man" Nagin.

We can all hope that his term isn't like an everlasting gobstopper...

Who gets the golden ticket?

I wonder, what exactly he was meaning by that?

If it's going to be a chocolate city, does that mean he'll be going to Hershey for his building materials? Reese's peanut butter for cement?

Daniel said...

This could actually work in our favor, the pot heads might all migrate there since everything will be chocolate and they can satisfy their munchies by chewing on a building.

Oompa loompa dupity do
I’ve got another riddle for you
What do you do when the storms take over?
Blame all the whities and rebuild your cover
(in the same exact spot… with gov’ment money sent by Dubya)

The Oompa Loompas will end up being "White People" spray painted a screwball shade of orange.

But the best comment was this: "How do you make chocolate? You take dark chocolate, you mix it with white milk, and it becomes a delicious drink. That is the chocolate I am talking about."

The guy is a dork!

Can you imagine if anyone said lets have a 'white' city?

Or, it is God's will that this is a 'white' city.

1 - that would be above the fold in the NY Times and a large number of other papers,
2 - it would be the lead in most MSM news broadcasts.

So ... why so little outrage?

Further comments did Nagin's hole get deeper?

"We ask black people ... It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans — the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans," Nagin said Monday. "This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans."

Mayor Apologizes

"NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The mayor of New Orleans apologized Tuesday for saying the hurricane-ravaged city would be rebuilt as a "chocolate" city and for blaming the storm on the wrath of God over U.S. involvement in Iraq."

Gunslinger said...

If it was God's will to be a African City, why is it that most of the stranded people who were abused by the storm black? Probably nothing.

That guy is a F'ing moron. He is largely responsible for those people getting stuck there. (school bus incident) and now he has the nerve to say shit like this. They should feed his dumb ass to the gators, they need chocolate too.
