Texas grit?

How can you not admire the unique survival kit strategy of this Texan, discovered by the Manhattan anthropologists at America's paper of record:

Michael Clow, a 53-year-old handyman, said he swam to a neighbor’s house after his cinder-block home broke to pieces around him. Struggling in water far above his head, Mr. Clow floated on a cooler in which he had stuffed two kittens, some cigarettes and a stash of beer.

I just hope he didn't eat the kittens while he was drinking Lone Star and smoking Pall Malls in the ruins of his post-deluge neighborhood.

And what's up with the unicorn pennant hanging from the line behind Mr. Clow?
