You heard about that cruise ship that was adrift for four or five days? (The ship carrying some 4,200 people and under tow by tugboats docked late Thursday, after an engine-room fire Sunday left it powerless and adrift.)
Well, those poor slobs didn’t know what they were in for when they boarded the ship:

“It just feels so good to be on land again and to feel like I have options,” said Tracey Farmer of Tulsa, Okla. “I’m just ready to see my family. It’s been harder on them than us I think because they’ve been so worried about us. It’s been extremely stressful for them.”passengersAs the ship pulled up, some aboard shouted, “Hello, Mobile!” Some danced. “Happy V-Day” read one of the homemade signs made for the Valentine’s Day arrival and another, more starkly: “The ship’s afloat, so is the sewage.”
To add insult to injury some of the passengers who fled the disabled Carnival cruise ship Triumph and left Alabama aboard charter buses suffered yet another setback on their way home when one of the buses broke down.
Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen says a bus got sidelined Friday on the way to New Orleans after leaving Mobile, Ala..
Next thing ya know we had a bunch of people stranded in the swamp in the middle of nowhere, and a second rescue had to be performed.
Seems like some days ya just can’t catch a break, eh!
