Take it Off!!

I've always been a big fan of firemen taking off their shirts, so when I read this, I got all atwitter.

Many of the firefighters, assembled from Utah and throughout the United
States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, thought they were
going to be deployed as emergency workers.

Instead, they have learned they are going to be community-relations
officers for FEMA, shuffled throughout the Gulf Coast region to
disseminate fliers and a phone number: 1-800-621-FEMA.

On Monday, some firefighters stuck in the staging area at the Sheraton
peeled off their FEMA-issued shirts and stuffed them in backpacks,
saying they refuse to represent the federal agency.

Not only are they "peeling off their shirts", but they are peeling off their shirts to show their displeasure with the federal government.

Damn that's hot!
