The Bird Finger(s)

Here's a fun graphic I made to explain to everyone how even in such small ways our lives have changed down here in New Orleans.

As I said on an earlier post, the vast majority of our traffic lights no longer work in this city because most of the city is still without power. As such, all major and intermediate intersections have become 4-way stops. Well, of course not everyone heeds these new rules because there is no one enforcing traffic laws of any sort in this city.

To wit, the way we now signal displeasure to our fellow drivers has changed. See diagram A below.

In an unrelated note, the goddamn Mayor of pretty little useless Charleston SC was in NOLA this week.

And some asshole wrote in the Gambit that Charleston should be the model for NOLA's recovery.

Well, fuck them.

This is what I posted last month on your blog:

If anyone prefers Charleston over NOLA, then by all means please let him stay there. Nobody who works all the thankless service industry jobs in C'ton can afford to live there, so they are forced to commute in a place where they had the gall to shut down public transportation because the rich f*ckers in C'town didn't want to subsidize it. Yeah, pour my drinks and clean up my hotels but don't you dare think I'm gonna make it easy for you to live here!

Charleston sucks, period. It's a fake, conceited little town that has no charm or character, just a gentrified prettiness that I for one can do without!

When someone doesn't heed the four-way stop, I pull out in front of them and shoot them the four fingers.

Four-way stop... four fingers.
