Hurricane Irene caused billions in damage and left 5 million people without power, but it wasn’t the apocalyptic storm many predicted. Good thing, too, because some people refused to take even the most basic precautions. When New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie heard that some diehards were partying on the Jersey Shore just hours before Irene arrived, he exploded, “Get those people the hell off the beach!”
- He added, “Especially the guy in the Speedo!”
- This is great training for when he gets older and starts yelling “Hey kids… get the hell off of my lawn!”
- People in New Jersey thought they saw a beached whale after the storm… but it was just Gov. Christie assessing the damage.
