A Request for assistance ;-) Yet again...

As many of you already know I wrote my Ba thesis on the jokes and cartoons that circulated online in the aftermath of September 11th. Now in the wake of Katrina I’m asking all and any of you to keep an eye open for me. Any jokes you might hear, puns you might be witness to, cartoons you might see or home made screenshots, altered or not, that in any way use humour to deal with the catastrophe. Anything remotely related will be appreciated and if date of observance as well as where or from whom the image or joke was obtained could be included I’d be in seventh heaven ;-)

The image in the post below is an example of what I’m looking for, hopefully exemplifying that it doesn’t have to be a long full story joke or an artfully drawn cartoon.

Anything you come across, humorously (be it gallows humour or not) addressing the situation Please Please forward it to me :-D

Many thanks,

Gunnella Thorgeirsdottir

GWB has given a whole new meaning to the term

Guess who's headlining at the next Hurricane Katrina concert? Katrina and the Waves

New Orleans, the Venice of the Americas
