Matthew Stohr salvages bottles of vodka from an eddy of containers that settled off the west end of a bridge into Fort Myers Beach on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022 after Hurricane Ian devastated the area.


Is that white people speak for LOOTING??

I mean, don't cheap beer and t-shirts comprise like 35% of Florida's infrastructure in the first place?

I thought Fark outlawed Lootie pics a while back? Is this one allowed because we now recognize White Cis Males are the true victims of Obama's weather machine or it's simply okay to ridicule Florida man?

I agree, since they're only salvaging the liquor and not looting it! :)

On a serious note, there wasn't much chance of reselling any of that glass-bottled liquor anyway.

This is hurricane.

Wait, Lootie was outlawed?  I thought I hadn't seen him recently because there hadn't been a major natural disaster for a bit.
 
2022-09-29 2:06:28 PM  
Yeah, about that causeway... there is no causeway.

A lot stories of people riding out the storm on the beach at Ft. Myers. They are extremely lucky to be alive.

I was born in Ft. Myers and my grandparents lived on Estero Island/ Ft. Myers Beach until they passed. It's a part of me that I still cherish. They will rebuild, and yes it will take time.

Actually that sounds kinda safe.  There's not much that can come flying at you from the ocean.

It also sounds extremely unpleasant.

I went to a jazz fusion show recently & the whole band was dressed in matching sweats and hoodies with that kind of design.

They were talented but at the same time I was thinking "is this what it is now? bro jazz?"

It's like the ocean threw up. Seems appropriate, given that it's Floriduh.

For all the reasons you imagine.
