Stephen Colbert on FEMA's 'Waffle House Index'

By |

This year has been rife with natural disasters, from "Hurricane Irene to Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign," jokes Stephen Colbert. But, for FEMA, 2011's natural disasters have been anything but funny: they've had to develop a "Waffle House index" to determine the amount of aid given to storm-stricken areas. The chain's strategy of "turning its customers into flotation devices" unfortunately isn't part of the plan. See Colbert's analysis of the FEMA strategy below.
