My view on going green and global warming:
So before I start on a rampage about how much I hate the Prius and the people who drive them, I'd like to give a disclaimer. I grew up in California. I remember when they taught us in school about conserving water during the drought of the late 1980's. I take short showers, recycle, own stock in a solar panel company and turn the lights off when I leave the room. But seriously, I'm completely over this entire "going green" campaign.
Every time I hear the words, "global warming" I puke a little. Al Gore completely killed it. I'm sick of hearing about saving the environment from a guy who flies all over the world on a private jet using more fuel that I've ever used with my Toyota Corolla. This brings me to the Prius. The Prius gets about 45 miles per gallon, my Corolla gets about 38, I deserve to be in the carpool lane too! I don't mind other hybrid cars, for example, the Civic Hybrid looks just like the normal car, and I'll all about not buying oil from terrorists. But the Prius is not only ugly, its ffffffuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggllllllllllyyyyyyyyyy!!! Its awkward shape and pretentiously raised backseat is like someone walking around thinking they are better than everyone and inviting the rest of us to kiss their backside, or backseat in this case. I can just see the average Prius owner, some unshowered guy who wears flip flops and has convinced himself that wheat grass shots are yummy, and that camping is fun. He should be shot!
I don't live in San Francisco, but I'm also annoyed at this new no plastic bag rule. I reuse my plastic bags all the time. They make for excellent garbage can lining, and I pack shoes in them when I go on vacation. The "Going Green" initiative does not win this time, you know who wins? Glad and other plastic bag companies whose business will go up significantly since we won't get our free plastic bags anymore. I love San Francisco, but one point for the suburbs where plastic bags are plentiful for the re usage.
A few other things that bother me on the Going Green initiative, SUVs that have the "keep Tahoe blue" stickers on them. HELLOOOOO SUVer, you're not helping! I'm also tired of hearing about the treatment of animals in slaughter houses. THEY'RE IN A SLAUGHTER HOUSE, we are going to eat them anyway.
Finally, just because you should take shorter showers doesn't mean you should be taking NO showers. You can be an environmentalist without smelling like dirt. Wow, I feel a lot better! On that happy note, I'm gonna drink some corporate Starbucks coffee and eat a hamburger!
Favorite Slang Word For Shizzle My Nizzle! Snoop Dogg, you are my hero! Love your music, and now you have your own language. Saying "yes" is so boring, but "for shizzle" is like yes with frosting and sprinkles on top. People don't have enough nizzles anymore. "Home skillet' and "home boy" is sooooooo 1990's. I chill with my nizzles in my crib...OMG, I hope I just didn't initiate a gang war. For Shizzle!
