I Shit You Not

Somehow I think Karl Marx would find it funny that FEMA was able to invert his famous saying: "History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce."

Via Garance Franke-Ruta of TAPPED
, it seems FEMA laid down a hip-hop track 'plaining to kidz just how important disaster preparation is. They wrote a song about it, hear it, hear it go:
Disaster . . . it can happen anywhere,
But we've got a few tips, so you can be prepared
For floods, tornadoes, or even a 'quake,
You've got to be ready - so your heart don't break.

Disaster prep is your responsibility
And mitigation is important to our agency.

People helping people is what we do
And FEMA is there to help see you through
When disaster strikes, we are at our best
But we're ready all the time, 'cause disasters don't rest.
It's funny at first, but then it's just simply tragic considering the consequences FEMA ineptitude wrought down South.
