|Doing my part|
Every member of the intellectual elite
is concerned about global warming - and equally convinced of the need to use
their superior intellects and rationalizing abilities to control the lives
around them to prevent further greenhouse emissions - for the good of the many
While some of their fellow citizens cruise around in comfortable gas
guzzling four wheel drives, pious greenies brave freezing cold
mornings to combat global warming on their bicycles. Apparently those unhappy
dirty-looking bearded people are worried that their trip to work will become
slightly more comfortable. The men are pretty miserable too.
But, not one to stand up against the overpowering collectivist will of The

know that as I spend a cool summer in front of the LCD TV, watching you riding
past sweating like pigs, you will be comforted by my contrition and newfound
commitment to the good of the many.
Ah, now that's cool.
