Zoo doesn't have animals? Oh really?

Jackson Ward 3 City Councilman Kenneth Stokes said that the Jackson Zoo hardly has any animals.  WLBT investigated and found that surprise, there are indeed quite a few animals at the Jackson Zoo: - Jackson, MS

Meanwhile, JJ obtained an inventory of the Jackson Zoo's animals and posted it below.

Ho duh phone said...

In the last 20 seconds of that news clip it appears moving the Zoo is a done deal?

Kenneth Stokes opens his mouth and stupidity abounds. He would be a nice addition to the Jackson Zoo exhibit.

City should give Stokes free room and board at the zoo behind a moat... zoo revenues would soar!

Only one black mamba missing! Excellent. Call in Ace Ventura.

Facts don't matter when you are trying to enrage racial animus.

This is a dumb, dumb man. He is not intelligent in the least. He's been in city government for 30 years and he is no better equipped to run the city than Lil' Lonnie is (make that was). He will be on the city council until Jackson burns to the ground or until the residents kill each other (given 6 murders in the past two weeks, that won't be long). Once he's gone, they'll rename some street after him.

In short, he is a COMPLETE DUMB F*CK, and we're stuck with his fat, ignorant ass for good.

1:42. He's a great example of the quality of education received at Lanier, JSU, and Texas Southern. These schools must be proud to have graduated such an esteemed scholar and gentleman.

The Zoo may not have the animals, but Stokes has all the birds.

2:20 He's only a great example of what can fall through the cracks at JSU. There are cracks at all institutions. No brag.

About time the media followed up a stokes comment by showing the facts.

Majority of the animals listed can be seen at PetSmart for free.

12:38, you should notice that in that closing comment, she said "according to the zoo". At the beginning she did say that you could still come to West Jackson for the next couple of years.

Actually, an example of pisspoor reporting by a local reporter. While it is true that the zoo wants to move, there is one little detail in their way - 100 million of them (dollars, that is). While the zoo and Ms. Beth may call it a done deal, last time I checked they don't have a Billy Cannon on their board to help print that money. Without that, neither WLBT or Ms Beth can make the statement that it will be moved, cause the city nor the state is ponying up those Benjamens.

He's an example of what falls through at low academic institutions you mean. I went to Georgetown in D.C. people like him didn't male it in the school much less make it through. Let's get some clarification! I have lived in Mississippi for 12 years now and I have lived in NE Jackson for 7. I can tell you Mississippi really needs to improve public universities here. It's obvious I'm sure. I love practicing here and helping the people of Mississippi but we must do better.

Can someone explain the "0.0.1" or "14.1.21" format?

The media is scared to death of this moron. How can you sit there and report this crap without calling him out at some point.

I moved to the Jackson area in the early 90's, and had never seen anything quite like Stokes before. On the local news a reporter was asking Stokes about why his cell phone bill (paid by the taxpayers) was several hundred dollars and included numerous calls to a pizza delivery service and local bank. Stokes explained the calls to the pizza place were because he was "checking up to see if they were willing to makes deliverys to a "black neighborhood" and the calls to the bank were to check the correct time. He claimed he couldn't go around wearing a fancy watch in the hood, lest he look like a drug dealer.

I was renting in Jackson then, and soon bought a house in the burbs. A city that had to put up with someone that disingenuous and dumb was not for me.

1:42 9:17 Salutation and congratulations on your obviously superior academic achievements! If you would run for office, and win, you could be a great example of the quality of education our elected officials in Mississippi received at their great alma maters. But sadly, until you bless us with your service we'll have to settle for Kennuf as the poster child for our obviously inferior institutions. We aren't as fortunate as D.C. to have such intellectual giants as Marion Barry to point to. Bear with us.

9:17 So you are demeaning "Mississippi's public universities" as if they are all the same? Well, of the 5300+ colleges and universities in the US, a ranking of the Top 10 Worst didn't include a single Mississippi school. However, the 4th worst in the entire country was the University of DC. So, by your logic, D.C.'s public universities are worse than Mississippi's, right?

Also, Georgetown is a private--not public-- university, which I would have thought a graduate would have known. That, along with your comment of "male it in" (which sounds vaguely obscene...), makes me question if you went there.

Oh-- and Stokes got his JD at a Texas university.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
