    We should all do our part to stop global warming.

    Golly, I still drink milk. I must be especially cautious.

    Today, I move on to the hard stuff – Ovaltine!

    An investment banker got tired of the rat race so he decided to move out to the country and raise alpacas. He was checking out a small town and he chatted up one of the locals at the country store.

    “Is the environment here healthy?” he asked.

    “You betcha. When I first came here, I didn’t have a hair on my head. I was incontinent of urine and of feces. I couldn’t take a step — I had to be carried from my bed to the bath. And just look at me now!” said the yokel, his cheeks glowing pink and his beating his chest with a strong, brown hand.

    “How long have you been here?” asked the city slicker.

    “Oh, I was born here.”

    Hasn’t global warming slowed down a bit during the last few years (at least if an AGW denialist squints just right at a carefully selected portion of the past decade) while piracy has increased of the coast of Somalia. There must be something to it.

    Actually considering how few humans on the planet drink the milk of other species, I suspect that most drug addicts did not start off drinking milk.

    But the price of rum has gone up! First, we need to slash the salaries of Presbyterian ministers.

    Orac:

    This is off-topic, but given your interest in the vaccine-autism debate and the Lupron-injecting, IRB-violating Geiers in particular, you might want to check out this new article out of Florida.

    The Geiers now want access to the state’s immunization database, and Governor Charlie Crist and his biggest donor, a chiropractor, are apparently pressuring health officials to give them that access.

    And three minutes after you post that link, there is a new article. Wow! Orac is fast! ;-)
