Muffler Man - A King

Hurricane Isaac toppled the Muffler Man in Metairie. People have posted of photos on Twitter today. He has been decapitated and knocked down.

It's the same crowned Muffler Man who appeared to be gloating in the background of newscasts after surviving Hurricane Katrina.

Muffler Man now a Saints Fan!

The Muffler Man's red shirt and blue pants were fading (and that was a paint job done long after the one in Sal's photo). Appropriately enough, he now wears a gloriously shiny pair of "gold" pants (no, not metallic -- he's not that flashy) and an equally shiny black shirt enhanced with a gold fleur de lis. This is more than just a sports thing, y'all -- after Katrina, the fleur de lis became our symbol, our stars and stripes.

Muffler dude wears it well!!

Muffler Man with a Crown

The Muffler Man has been repainted. He now has a black shirt with a fleur du Lis on the chest and gold pants. Looks good.
