The BBC has a story on their web site about singer Sheryl Crow, and her brilliant solutions to global warming. One of them deals with paper napkins:
Crow has also commented on her website about how she thinks paper napkins “represent the height of wastefulness”.
She has designed a clothing line with what she calls a “dining sleeve”.
The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another “dining sleeve” after the diner has used it to wipe his or her mouth.
Has this moron never heard of cloth napkins? So. . . she wants us all to run around wiping our mouths on our sleeves, eh? Well, what about tissues? They’re made of paper! Maybe the other sleeve should be called the “snot rag”, and we can wipe our noses on it. Because there is also no such thing as a cloth handkerchief.
Of course, overuse of toilet paper is the greatest contributer to global warming:
Singer Sheryl Crow has said a ban on using too much toilet paper should be introduced to help the environment.
Crow has suggested using “only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required”.
Now, see, for women, she could introduce long sleeved dresses in her clothing lines. One sleeve for the mouth, one sleeve for the nose, and the skirt of the dress to wipe yourself after using the toilet. Men will probably just have to use their hands instead of the wasteful amount of 2-3 squares of toilet paper.
UPDATE: Crow is now claiming that her comments were of course jokes, to get people’s attention and get everyone talking about global warming. I’d like to believe this, but unfortunately for her, no one’s talking about global warming. They’re all talking about what an idiot she is. Seems to be another case of a celebrity opening their mouths, and then realizing that people capable of cognitive thought actually read the news, so their comments don’t play so well.
