The Yes Men Strike Again

From CNN, by way of TPM Muckraker, the prankster group The Yes Men have struck again in New Orleans, this time perpetrating a HUD official.

For those of you not familiar with The Yes Men, I highly recommend the 2003 documentary by the same name. Essentially, they go around impersonating officials from various "bad organizations," and say the things that's really on all our minds. For example, the documentary shows them impersonating WTO officials, spouting off the benefits of the slavery that occurs as a result of globalization.

In this particular stunt, the pranksters said what needed to be said--and what we would all like to see happen in New Orleans: Government and private companies actually spending money to fix the city.
