    The Ad was payed for by BP money, and has been pulled for now, but is still under consideration. Typical New Orleans humor, see no problem in making light of a difficult situation.

    Having a Brit mom, I pretty early on learned the best way to irritate that nationality was to start singing "Innnnnnn eighteen fourteen we took a little trip..."

    In college we hosted a Brit golf team our team was playing... I remember a whole bar breaking into the song when they got too ****y.

    They have taken their lumps more than any other major city and come back fighting each time so a bit of morbid humor that is the blatant truth is in tune with them
