|According to reliable sources, Mr. Donald LaCour experienced some technical difficulties in the ongoing Research and Development of his now world famous Jet Bug Crawfish Boiler. While demonstrating the boiler for visitors from New Iberia, LA and Pomona, California a near catastrophic event occured. It seems that Donald had been working on refining the seal of the boiler to increase heat and pressure to reduce cooking time when the pot began to disintegrate, sending fragments of aluminum high into the air in the wake of the jet propulsion. Evidently, the development stage of this project has transcended the use of aluminum as a cooking vessel. In a recent interview, Mr. LaCour stated that the "Run Like Hell" designation on the Jet Boiler's control panel now has a whole new respect. It appears that hard hats are under consideration as standard PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) along with earplugs for those observing the Jet Boiler phenomenon. Mr. LaCour stated that he had been intensifying his efforts for the upcoming Bi Centennial celebration of Mouton Cove, LA (south of I-10) and we sincerely hope that with the anticipated cooperation of the NASA engineering group that all will proceed as planned. The celebration is scheduled for August 24th & 25th, the first weekend following August 19th, which is the official Bi Centennial Date.
