    Katrina victim sues U.S. for $3 quadrillion

    updated 2 hours, 47 minutes ago
    NEW ORLEANS - Hurricane Katrina's victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion.

    The total number — $3,014,170,389,176,410 — is the dollar figure so far sought from some 489,000 claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane.

    Shouldn't the US Government turn around and sue god for causing the hurricane?

    Can I top it with a joke about dead people?

    So without looking up the answers (cheaters) what comes after a quadrillion?


    I knew all of those from some silly-assed junior high class. Why I've retained it is beyond me.

    I didn't see the humor. Maybe I was looking at it wrong.

    Was the plaintiff wearing a vomit-stained Fubu shirt?
