The Global warming movement is dead!
Threaten Americans’ beer and the “movement “ is so over!!LOL
I’m confused. For years, the democrats and their media have been asserting that George Bush caused all this.
Vote for Obama and save your beer!!!
How about “less money in my wallet?”
There was a sharks eating Antarctic penguins recently.
This is SOOO the ticket. Dissemination ray on full immersion with this puppy.
Here is a list of everything that Globull warming causes!
What, no “cats and dogs living together?”
I got piles from sitting on a cold wet porch step. Does that count?
To heck with carbon credits....BUY BEER!!!
“I got piles from sitting on a cold wet porch step. Does that count?”
Screw your piles(poor choice of words)! What about the beer?!
Oblivion ?!? That just about wraps up everything, I guess.
Wasn't there one recently about chocolate makers in Europe blaming GW for bad batches of chocolate or some such? Maybe it's buried in the list somewhere already, but I could swear I remember reading about it here.
New!!: Dr. John Ray's
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
My pet rock eats this sh-t up.
I noticed CAT INVASIONS isn’t on the list.
Adoption Group: Cat Invasion Due to Global Warming
Wonderful! But I didn’t the one about where global warming flushes your toilet when you’re in the shower. . .
Ahh yes, the Elderly, Children, and the Poor. How original.
” Loch Ness monster dead “
Damn, I missed the funeral.
“Ahh yes, the Elderly, Children, and the Poor. How original.”
Exactly. Wanna find a reason to be alarmed about something(anything)? Pull up stats about the elderly, children and poor. Everything adversely effects them more than the rest of us. Want to stop it? Go ahead and try, but they have been killed off under any given set of circumstances in greater numbers than those that fall outside those catagories long before “global warming” came along.
I’m pretty sure body odor and bad breath should be on the list...I’ll check. Oooh! And tooth decay, can’t forget that!
I didn’t even know he was sick. Crap!
It seems the list left out “the heartbreak of psoriasis.”
That list is completely in correct.
Here is the corrected list.
LOL, I had to scour the article for the reference, but sho’ ‘nuff, it was in there.
They forgot jock itch.
-add it to the list; its just as valid as the rest of em!
D9N Cat's do a very good job of this....
