“Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a figure of speech commonly used in the United States that refers to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination. (From Wikipedia). Well, someone drank the Kool-Aid!
In an attempt to understand the extent of cow flatulence on global warming, scientists in Argentina are strapping plastic bags to the backs of cows to capture their emissions …
Seriously. Do I need to comment?
The government in NZ tried to introduce a ridiculous fart tax when Helen Clark was the Prime Minister. She is now 3rd in charge at the UN after we voted her out. It doesn’t surprise me that it’s now being tried on in other countries.
Here’s some pictures of the NZ protests from 2003:
Hey diddle diddle
the UN’s got a fiddle
to tax cow fart’s real soon
The cow farmers laughed
to hear the report
and then they were taxed to the moon.
I’m sure this poem could be improved. I need some witty people to help with this.
Anyway, don’t let them try to diddle you with that ridiculous tax in your country!
And leave that Kool-Aid alone.
