Here's some good ol' Cajun cooking for you.
It's a popular dish where I come from, and it's taken from the perennial cookbook, Louisiana: Recipe for Disaster. And here's how you make Endemic Toxic Stew:
-- Take 300 years of a deviant civic culture out of the bayous of Louisiana. Check to make sure the tolerance of corruption and the get-rich-quick scheme has ripened sufficiently.
-- Add a significantly uneducated and compliant population.
-- Make a roux with BP crude oil and contaminated sediments.
-- Simmer in a cracked pot for many generations in befouled water over tropical heat.
-- Add oil- and dispersant-contaminated seafood. (If you desire, add a number of Louisiana state deadheads for a more robust flavor.)
-- Season to taste with complacency, corrupt politicians, waste, incompetent government and a Gallic shrug.
-- Serve with dirty rice, cancer sticks and too much booze.
(Makes enough to serve as many legislators' brothers-in-law as possible. Serves fewer "unconnected" citizens every year. Eat at your own risk.)
