Sean Penn, Savior
It didn't quite work out the way
he'd planned:Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch.
The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup.
Notice that there's no body armor for the troops, only the general.With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"
He was only planning on saving kids. Preferably photogenic kids.
(Note: This is a photo I found surfing around--it's not really Penn's boat.)Best header
