An Inconvenient Threat

July 21st, 2008 · 239 comments

Kendall was waiting for her peach perfection at the Jamba Juice in Elmhurst, Illinois when she spotted this note on the napkin-holder. Writes Kendall: “I guess it’s their passive-aggressive way of saying, ‘take fewer napkins, a**hole!’”

Al Gore knows how many napkins you take

A tip for would-be internet meme-mongers: as of this writing, algoreknowshowmanynapkinsyoutake.com is still available. (What are you waiting for? apparently, these days they’re handing out book deals to any idiot with a blog!)

UPDATE 10/12/09: A copycat is on the loose in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! (As spotted by Paul in Nebraska)

Al Gore knows how many napkins you take

UPDATE 9/24/10: Another real-world homage!  This time, from an office in Los Angeles. (It took two years for this to spread to the West Coast? Really?)

      If Gore can tell how many napkins Kendall takes,
      The time is right to stop, slow down, put on the brakes.
      Unlimited resources we do not possess.
      Don’t take that seventh napkin. Make a bit less mess!
      Don’t blithely drive around till all the oil is burnt,
      Till it’s so obvious that even Bush has learnt.
      Instead of SUVs with inlaid ivory,
      Blood-diamond panes and panda-fur upholstery,
      Try cycling. Half the time, it’s faster anyway.
      (Does Gore know who it was who took that horse’s hay?
      But I digress.) My point is, if he knows or not,
      The sea level is rising and it’s getting hot.
      So get some solar panels and, whatever else you do,
      Wait till it really stinks before you flush the loo.

      Teddy’s mistress was actually an alien trying to infiltrate the US government, and when he realized it, he did what he had to do.

      Teddy was a kid, he got scared and left the scene of an accident. I cannot comment further because I’ve never tried to rescue someone in a sunken car in the dark. Have you?

      Cheney is the man whose judgement we are supposed to rely on if something should happen to the President.

      perhaps future popular votes should be centered around the first lady’s looks. the ballot options should read:

      CHECK ONLY ONE:
      ( ) I’d hit it
      ( ) I’d hit it with a baseball bat

      …and covering up is as bad as if it had been premeditated. End result was the same.

      Our system is not based solely on end result, Heisa.
      The most Teddy would have gotten, assuming wrong-doing, is negligent manslaughter or something. Premeditated murder is Murder in the First Degree.
      So you see, my friend, death does not a murder make.

      To a politician 37 is very young. They have been known to have “Youthful Indiscretions in their 50′s.

      Conceded: my intention was not to declare premeditation the same as covering up, only that death was the result of bad judgment and unwillingness to do the right thing.

      TK had a horrible driving record prior. After he drove into the water and got out, he passed FOUR houses with lights on and not once did he stop and ask for help – the girl had no chance to survive.

      All I’m saying is at least Cheney got him some help and the guy survived.

      Sorry everyone for the off topic as well.

      Maybe, but it’s ridiculous to make the assumption that she would have survived if Teddy had stopped at the first house, if the residents could be awakened, if someone were able to get to her in a timely fashion, if someone knew how to treat a drowning victim.
      Mary Jo is dead and lots of people have drowned in their cars since then with no one prosecuted because they saved their own skin and did not jump back into the water to win hero status.

      Not saying he did anything right…just saying give the guy a break, you weren’t there. Many people have panicked under far less stressful conditions.

      If I had a napkin for every time I’ve said that, Al Gore would have my hide! ;-)

      Has anyone noticed that Bush walks with the backs of his hands facing forward? Sort of like Fred Flintstone.

      He also does a head-bob when he completes his signature. Like a 1st-grader silently spelling in his head as he writes: “B-U-S-H, there!”

      I’ve tried azerty as well but I have discovered that a French Canadian keyboard is easier to use when I need to demonstrate my garbled mastery of the French language. But lacking the required hardware, I just use a modifier key to get accented letters.

    Well, if it’s like everything else, Al Gore only wants you to use 1.5 napkins. That way they won’t run out when he comes through and grabs 70 of them and when Tipper comes through and takes her usual 70. There should also be 50 each left over for his SUV-Limo driver, the pilot for his private jet, and Michael Moore. Then his vehement supporters can use 20-30 each while standing around waiting to chasitse anyone who exceeds the 1.5 limit.

    So many people buying the great Global Lie. Here’s some facts for you. The south polar ice cap is growing very rapidly. The earth has been cooling since 1998. Solar Cycle 24 – GOOGLE IT! 70% of Gore’s sources are models based on a typo! The Earth is not/no longer warming. Storms are becoming more infrequent.

    But most importantly. Humans CANNOT affect the Global Climate. We are no where near producing enough “greenhouse gases” to change the weather at all. Stop buying the bulls***!
