Dan LaBella: Man Of Action

Even in the midst of tragedy our local politicians can be relied on to provide comedic relief. The only thing funnier than Mr. LaBella's inane "Don't inhale the fire!" comment during the Matt's conflagration was his sheer buffoonery in comparison to actual public safety professionals. Just seconds after he mugged for the television cameras and reassured his adoring public that "The fire is under control," Chief Brooks stepped forward and pointed out that the fire definitely wasn't under control.

The look on LaBella's face was priceless.

Update: Holy smokes. I originally whipped up this graphic as a joke, but I've had enough people email me about actually getting T-shirts that I set up a Cafepress store with a couple of different versions of it. Here's what the revised graphic looks like:

If anyone wants to produce the shirts locally I'd be more than happy to whip up a Creative Commons non-profit license. Heck, if you're willing to donate the proceeds to charity you could probably just steal the graphic. Hint, hint.
