This is not off topic...in fact it still shocks me, as a person who treasures photographs. He asks, "How f----d up is that?" And the answer is very, very, very f----d up.
This contains some swear words so don't listen at work or at school. Hope everyone can get it. If you can't, search for the title on YouTube, maybe there's another version.
John Mulaney used to be a writer for "Saturday Night Live."

Featured Comments from:
Stephen Gilbert: "It took a while to get there, but was definitely worth the trip. Thanks."
gary isaacs: "Horrors of the First World...."
Ken James: "Could not, cannot listen to such vulgarity. Why do people laugh at such stuff?"
Andrew Molitor: "I thought the story was hilarious. Awful too, obviously. But I laughed and laughed. Humor's funny like that."
Mike adds: Although I sympathize—it's never pleasant to be offended, no matter what offends you—I wonder if those who are offended by John Mulaney's vulgarity listen to much stand-up comedy. (I enjoy it, so I hear a lot of it, although I don't think there's much that's very good.) He doesn't really even peg the middle of the scale on the Vulgarity Meter. Seems kind of clean-cut and PG by comparison to a lot of comics, actually....
Michel: "That is indeed f----d up. As is this story. Back up your stuff people."
Mike replies: That's really troubling. Sincere condolences to Jacques.
mike plews: "Over the years I have interviewed people [Mike is a TV cameraman —Ed.] who have lost their homes to floods, fires and tornadoes and you keep hearing 'we saved the pictures, we can start over.' I've seen people standing in a field of rubble no higher than their ankles clutching the family photo album and weeping with joy that it was spared.
"I'm sure many TOP readers have good photo restoration skills. If you are one of those folks it might be a nice idea to drop by the fire department or Red Cross and offer up those skills as a volunteer. You could do more good than you know."
