Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
It’s the kind of story you really couldn’t make up. Parody has merged with reality, as Stella McCartney and Pamela Anderson unite to help the domestic pets affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Thousands are dead, and hundreds of thousands of thousands are homeless in what’s been described as the USA’s greatest ever disaster. Billions of pounds of damage has been caused, the area is in chaos with looting and shootings seemingly common. People have lost their entire life’s possessions, and all the memories associated with them. Even Michael Jackson‘s getting stuck in to the humanitarian aid effort. And two slightly ditsy blondes want to help the cats, dogs, and guinea pigs of the region.
I’m sure they’ll be grateful.
