    Hurricane Gustav! Right now it looks like it's going to hit here in Louisiana. Hopefully it won't be a repeat of Katrina, I'd rather not spend my time snatching people off rooftops.

    Well, if nothing else this hurricane is a dude. They aren't as malevolent as bitches.

    Head for high ground! Seriously, best of luck. I don't want to be reading about you in the news.

    If you see Japes in the news it'll be because he's shooting looters.

    “What appears to be a vigilante has been seen stalking and killing would-be looters in and around the area. We’ve only been able to identify him as Japes. He seems to have unlimited access to weapons and ammunition. Japes has also been seen in a ‘Special Operations Craft-Riverine (SOC-R), although authorities are not sure where it came from. Film at Eleven. “

    I got called in this morning (on Sunday) so we could fly down to New Orleans and evacuate people, but there were so many echelons of command involved that the mission didn't get off the ground until 1 pm, and when we stopped for fuel in Baton Rouge, they called us back to Fort Polk. Huge cluster fuck and a fantastic waste of my day.

    Anyway, the storm will be passing through here tomorrow afternoon, so wish me luck.

    That happened when we sent boys from Halifax to help evac for Katrina.

    Except nobody wanted to get out of bed, so we didn't get off the ground til 1 pm, and when we stopped for coffee at Tim Horton's, the guys got called back. Huge cluster fuck, and a fantastic waste of the world's time.

    Is it as bad as Katrina? Will it be worth having our Presidential Candidates debate the relief effort for it?

    Good Luck!

    An unfortunate affair this is.

    Best of luck Jungle Japes.

    Well, Gustav turned out to be a very underwhelming category 2 hurricane.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for hurricane Ike. It's in the atlantic right now, but maybe it'll head this way and wreak havoc on New Orleans. Then I'll get to shoot some looters!

    Ah, there's the Japes I know and secretly fear. Never looks on the downside, always finds ways to pray for a reason to shoot idiots.

    "Do you know what kind of suicide rate we'd have if people killed themselves just because they were stupid?"
    "Yes. An acceptable one."

    (S*P, made me think of you guys.)

    Introduce me.

    What comic is this, and where can I find it?

    If you enjoy something positive you'd probably also enjoy the now completed Queen of Wands. There were two crossover story arcs between S*P and QoW while it ran and after it was done one of the characters from QoW joined the S*P cast.

    And if you like QoW the creator has a new comic called Punch an' Pie which is a collaboration with her and the artist of Striptease
