Weekly World News alert:
Al Gore missing in Amazon rain forest!

Publication: Weekly World News (via the Sun)
Date: 17 Oct. 2011

Fresh trash on Thursdays! As I have written many times before, I love the Weekly World News, but it is like being a fan of a once mighty dynasty that has fallen on hard times. I keep hoping they with come up with another "Bat Boy Found In Cave!" and week after week they disappoint. But this week, if anyone at that publication has a lick of sense, I think they have invented a running gag with real potential.

Al Gore is missing in the Amazon rain forest.

Just to make things clear, I don't "believe in global warming" any more than I "believe in gravity". These are scientific facts and my belief system don't enter into it. As for humans contributing to global warming, I have a hard time thinking it is otherwise.

But really, think about it! Every four to six weeks, Al Gore gets himself into another predicament in some endangered habitat! This would be HIGH-larious!

Example: Al Gore stranded on Arctic ice flow, drifting out to sea!

Try it yourself! Honestly, these things damn near write themselves.

I only hope someone at the Weekly World News has figured this out as well.

Who knows? Maybe they Google themselves from time to time and stumble upon this blog. Here's hoping.
