Uh, Really?

Here's your morning chuckle.  It has to do with a question posed by a guest columnist in the Roanoke Times, "a Blacksburg naturalist," we're told (here's my question: is a naturalist a nudist? I can't remember.)

"Do you know what recently happened in our nation's capital that will greatly affect the future of our planetary climate?"

Gosh.  I don't know.  Did Congress disband, ending the disgorgement of all that hot air (see "greenhouse gases") that was driving global temperatures to increase all of 0.6° C.?

Uh, no.

It turns out that "There was a two-week historic mobilization concerning tar sands with daily actions of nonviolent civil disobedience outside the White House."



A scene from the "historic" Washington "mobilization" is captured on film:

Oh.  Sorry.  That's a photo of a Christian gathering in Africa.

Here's a photo of the historic mobilization that will greatly affect the future of our planetary climate:

The day the earth trembled.  Twelve elderly hippies held up some signs.  And then drove over to Wal-Mart to replenish their stockpile of Depends.

I don't know.  I was expecting something a little more Biblical.

These environmentalists crack me up.
