    At least 40 people were injured, two of them critically, said Amy Carruth, a spokeswoman with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. She said she could not confirm whether anyone had died.

    Portions of Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia were under a tornado watch until Thursday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

    The same storm system swept through east Texas, north Louisiana and Arkansas late Wednesday, according to the weather service. The system spawned eight tornadoes and nearly 40 areas reported large hail and wind damage.

    A tornado killed at least one person and injured 17 in Arkansas, according to the state's Department of Emergency Management.

    Newton Mayor Hamp Beatty said many parts of the town of 3,700 people about 60 miles east of Jackson had sustained damage. Gas and electricity were out everywhere, he said. A local state of emergency has been declared.

    "It's pretty much a mess," Beatty said.

    Denise Smith, 28, was working in the back of the Wal-Mart when the "lights flashed about four or five times" and then went out completely. The store was packed with holiday shoppers when the tornado hit shortly after 1 p.m. (2 p.m. ET).

    "We didn't have any kind of warning," Smith told CNN.

    The tornado first blew out the front windows and then the roof began giving way.

    "I could see the roof and I could see it coming towards the back and all of the roof started caving in," Smith said.

    She then "hit the floor." The store was completely dark, she said, and people yelled for help.

    Terry McKinon, who works at the nearby BP E-Z Stop convenience store, said he heard the tornado "rumbling and rumbling" before it swooped down.

    "Several small buildings were all turned upside down," he said.

    McKinon said other businesses, including a Sonic drive-in, were "flattened," and he saw a truck overturned on the nearby interstate.

    The Wal-Mart is north of Newton and the La-Z-Boy factory is in the downtown area of the city. Carruth said the chair factory is one of the largest factories in the state.

    "When the main place to work is La-Z-Boy and the main place to shop is Wal-Mart, when that area is impacted, it impacts the whole community," Carruth said.

    The mayor said crews were assessing the damage and the first priority was to get utilities turned back on.

    "We're just doing the best we can," Beatty said.

    MR. Pink
    Look, I ordered coffee. Now we've
    been here a long fuckin time, and
    she's only filled my cup three
    times. When I order coffee, I
    want it filled six times.

    MR. BLONDE
    What if she's too busy?

    MR. Pink
    The words "too busy" shouldn't be
    in a waitress's vocabulary.

    MR. PINK
    Why am I Mr. Pink?

    JOE
    Cause you're a faggot.

    Everybody laughs.

    MR. PINK
    Why can't we pick out our own
    colors?

    JOE
    I tried that once, it don't work.
    You get four guys fighting over
    who's gonna be Mr. Black. Since
    nobody knows anybody else, nobody
    wants to back down. So forget it,
    I pick. Be thankful you're not
    Mr. Yellow.

    MR. BROWN
    Yeah, but Mr. Brown? That's too
    close to Mr. Shit.

    Everybody laughs.

    MR. PINK
    Yeah, Mr. Pink sounds like Mr.
    Pussy. Tell you what, let me be
    Mr. Purple. That sounds good to
    me, I'm Mr. Purple.

    JOE
    You're not Mr. Purple, somebody
    from another job's Mr. Purple.
    You're Mr. Pink.

    MR. WHITE
    Who cares what your name is? Who
    cares if you're Mr. Pink, Mr.
    Purple, Mr. Pussy, Mr. Piss...

    MR. PINK
    Oh that's really easy for you to
    say, you're Mr. White. You gotta
    cool-sounding name. So tell me,
    Mr. White, if you think "Mr. Pink"
    is no big deal, you wanna trade?

    JOE
    Nobody's trading with anybody!
    Look, this ain't a goddamn fuckin
    city counsel meeting! Listen up
    Mr. Pink. We got two ways here,
    my way or the highway. And you
    can go down either of 'em. So
    what's it gonna be, Mr. Pink?

    MR. PINK
    Jesus Christ, Joe. Fuckin forget
    it. This is beneath me. I'm Mr.
    Pink, let's move on.
