    Posted: December 21 2008 at 5:12pm
Hurricane Shazza hit Penrith in the early hours of 17th November 2008.
 Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly, muttering 'Faaackinell'.
 
 The hurricane devastated the area causing approximately $30 worth of
 damage. Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals
 were woken well before their Centrelink cheques arrived.
 
 The Penrith Times reported that hundreds of residents were confused and
 bewildered and were still trying to come to terms with the fact that
 something interesting had happened in Penrith .
 
 One resident - Tracy Maree Sharon Britney Madonna Smith, a 15-year-old
 mother of 3 said 'It was such a shock, my little Chardonnay-Mercedes came
 running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two Joachim and River slept
 through it all.'
 
 Apparently, looting, muggings and car crime were unaffected and carried on
 as normal. The Australian Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates
 of Bacardi-Breezers to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue
 workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large
 quantities of personal belongings, including Health Care Cards, Jewellery
 from Kmart, and Bone China from Big W.
 
 HOW CAN YOU HELP?

 This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing parcels for those
 unfortunate enough to be caught up in this disaster. Clothing is most
 sought after - items most needed include: flannelette shirts, tight blue
 jeans or spandex, singlets (blue & white) white sport socks, Ugg boots and
 any other items usually sold in Priceline or The Reject Shop. Food parcels
 may be harder to come by, but are needed all the same.
 
 Required foodstuffs urgently needed include: Microwave meals, Baked beans,
 Ice cream, Chips, Fizzy drinks.
 
 Donations of $15.00 will be taken to buy a packet of winny blue 25s and a
 lighter to calm the nerves of those affected.

**Breaking news**

Penrith Uniting Church has cancelled their local 'Nativity Display' due to
 their inability to find three wise men or a virgin. Please don't forward
 this to anyone living in Penrith - oh, stuff it, they won't be able to read
 it, anyway!

But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

Because I'm hunting you

There are places like that all over.   I've been through more than a few.
I did check on Wikipedia and they cleaned the place up some, but "Lower than average income" and "far higher than average renting vs owning"  spoke a lot.  I may have to write down some anecdotes about being a range officer.

Actually, you can make it a Northern California joke by changing the name to Rio Linda! Everything else can stay the same!

There are parts of Ohio where a tornado is considered an urban renewal project.

I'm absolutley convinced that God hates trailer parks...EVERY time you see a news clip about a tornado touching down stateside-it ALWAYS seems to involve a trailer park!!
I remember one time drivin to Fla. on I-75(back in the 70's).The sky was BLACK...the radio was on emergency transmission re:Tornados in the area.We couldnt see anything...but when we came over the hill,it musta JUST passed-cause the debris was EVERYWHERE!!I guess it hit a trailerpark in the area.You can imagine the debris field...(Never seen so many pairs of women's spandex pants in one area before!)
