Bearded men and climatic doom

2008-10-03

in Daily updates, The environment

The Onion has a brief article that may seem uniquely pertinent to readers of this blog:

A man with a piece of food stuck in his beard is currently addressing an auditorium full of world leaders and prominent scholars on what seems to be the subject of global warming, sources are reporting. The food particle has been dangling from the man’s facial hair for more than an hour while he has mentioned such phrases as “sulfides,” “ice caps,” “immediately, otherwise we all may,” “underwater tomb,” and “of human life as we know it.” It was briefly dislodged during a particularly animated portion of the presentation in which complete global apocalypse was remarked upon, only to fall one inch and reattach to a lower portion of beard.

It joins such favourites as: U.N. Orders Wonka To Submit To Chocolate Factory Inspections and Fundamentalist Aesopians Interpret Fox-Grapes Parable Literally. My all-time favourite remains: Bush Regales Dinner Guests With Impromptu Oratory On Virgil’s Minor Works.

I liked the Onion piece “‘Midwest’ found between East and West Coasts” http://www.theonion.com/content/node/31079 . Indeed, an uncivilized & inhospitable place where very strange costumes are worn.
