And the legend of “Spike” was born: The Tarpon Rodeo, hot tuna and old school politics

Since the Times Picayune editorial board whipped out an old term we picked up from TheRiot in “deadhead” in pointing out the 7th floor of the Yenni Building was packed with political cronies of Tim Coulon and Aaron Broussard, it is only fair I point out the 10th Floor was where the Courtesans were assigned.

Since we’re renaissance people here at Slabbed, I find this topic wholly appropriate if not X-Rated and kinky. By now I’ve heard stories about oversized libetos in the upper management ranks at the Yenni going back literally decades but no one Courtesan fills the bill for examination better than “Spike”, an employee with talents that sound akin to “Red Snapper” of Hancock County infamy save for the fact Ms. Snapper did not occupy an official position in any political subdivision.

Slabbed has spoken to one of Spike’s former fans and I was told tales of politicos literally flipping coins to see who would gain Spike’s services for the evening and that was the tame stuff.  Spike was far from alone but these women were not “deadheads” on the payroll folks as quite the opposite is true. That said John Young must not have been impressed with the talent pool he inherited as all have since left the employ of the Parish.  In ways how that could happen all those years and never see the light of day is a worse story than what happened on the 7th floor IMHO.

Stay tuned for more tales from the 10th floor here on the Slabb.  😉


Meantime over on the Saints beat at Wang’s place…..

CPAs like the concept of materiality thus it is only natural I’d be drawn to Grand Master Wang at Moosedenied for a comprehensive Saints update titled Material Issues. His take on whether Sean Payton will violate the terms of his suspension is priceless. Here is a snippet:

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… dying time’s here.

Welcome back to ass-kicking season, bitches. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me Drew’s looking a little nervous there. And why shouldn’t he be? After all, THE WHOLE DAMN TEAM IS IN TURMOIL! Or something. The Saints are entering the 2012 season amidst UNPRECEDENTED CIRCUMSTANCES! And what in the hell would Drew Brees know about unprecedented? Clearly we’re screwed. The Saints will be lucky not to have completely imploded by Halloween. Dozens of national Legitimate Media™ types can’t possibly be wrong on this.Fortunately for us, there will be plenty of time over the next six months or so for us to troll them and focus on how they suck, as the wins continue to mount and they become increasingly baffled and belligerent. Oh, it’s gonna be big fun. Wait for it… wait for it…
