Remember when New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin said that he wanted to make his city “chocolate” again?
Well, having a couple of Tinseltown cream-cheesers moving in is bound to slow the process. Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and kidsÃ‚Â have bought a home in the French Quarter.
But before Nagin gets too upset over theÃ‚Â dashing of his all-chocolate dream, let’s do the math.
Pitt and Jolie are white, but they hang out in Africa a lot (.15 chocolate each), andÃ‚Â Brad gets another .2 chocolate points for once playing a character named Joe Black. They have one biological child, who is white if you don’t count the tattoos but who also hangs out in Africa a lot and alsoÃ‚Â likes to eat chocolateÃ‚Â (.25 chocolate). Also, Jolie has two adoptedÃ‚Â children — one from Cambodia (.85 chocolate)Ã‚Â and one from Ethiopia (full chocolate status on the Nagin choc-o-meter).
That’s five totalÃ‚Â peopleÃ‚Â moving in, but the net chocolateÃ‚Â lossÃ‚Â is only 2.4 on the choc-o-meter. Nagin can get thatÃ‚Â 2.4 back easily. Heck,Ã‚Â that’s exactly the net gainÃ‚Â the MayorÃ‚Â would get if he could convince Madonna and her husband to move in after adoptingÃ‚Â just two more Africans and a Malaysian who once saw Booty Call.Ã‚Â
It could have been much worse, Mr. Mayor. Much worse.
