Monday, May 19, 2008's all MY fault

Can this global warming garbage get any more stupid?

As if they didn’t already have enough problems on their hands fat people are now being blamed for global warming.

British scientists say they use up more fuel to transport them around and the amount of food they eat requires more energy to produce than that consumed by those on smaller diets.

According to a team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine this adds to food shortages and higher energy prices.

Researchers Phil Edwards said: “We are all becoming heavier and it is a global responsibility. Obesity is a key part of the big picture."

Well...damn. Nothing like a huge dose of guilt to begin my week.

Here I am at a UCLA football game last October suffering from the ravages of global warming. I have nobody to blame but myself.

I'll tell you what. I am going on a diet save the earth! My car (even with my fat ass in it) already gets 25-27 mpg., I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment that uses miniscule(compared to global warming prophet Algore...PBUH) amounts of energy...but I guess I am just not doing enough to save Mother Planet.

I'm not doing this for me, or my health...I'm doing it for the Polar Bear, Great Tits, and the future of our earth. Y'all can thank me now...

(my old college roommate, TR emails to remind me to credit him for the photo. So TR, consider yourself credited, as long as you don't mind me telling my four readers that you were drunk off your ass on Captain Morgans and Red Stripes)

Yeah dude, like, mix in a salad and save the environment. Speaking of saving the environment, have you heard how these nit-wits are going to save the environment from the O'side pier to the IB Pier?! Ride one of these 50% soy boards in a heavy winter swell and see if you come out alive.

The Surfrider Foundation is a cabal of mental midgets. I debate any member and their moonbat agenda every chance I can.

A few years back I read a story about a girl who had gone into a Chinese restaurant. When the waiter offered her a set of bamboo chopsticks, she huffily replied that she had her own, and didn't support the wanton deforestation of Mother Earth and cited the terrible problems created by cheap, disposable utensils, etc.
The waiter examined the set of chopsticks she proudly displayed, and with an absolutely straight face, said, "Very nice. Ivory."
I love that story.
