Houston man keeping sense of humor despite devastating floods

'When you can't do nothing about it, might as well have some fun'


HOUSTON – One Houston man is keeping his sense of humor despite the floods that devastated Houston and surrounding areas over the weekend.

Crystal Monjanaras posted videos of her neighbor making light of their situation on Saturday and the videos instantly went viral.

In the first video, her neighbor takes a Nemo float out into the street and begins riding the floatie through the flooded street while neighbors look on in laughter.

In the second video, her neighbor comes out of the house with a plunger, attempting to "unclog" the street. After a few attempts, the man tells his neighbors "give it five minutes!"

The videos have been shared nearly 350,000 times since they were posted. 

My neighbor is a fool 😂 #HurricaneHarvey
