From the "they're shitting us, right? 'cause that's got to be a joke, cause I'm waiting for the punchline, right? Right?" department comes this bit of news that's bound to change the way we live our lives and the very stars in their firmament:

George Clooney will become an executive board member of a new Swiss energy company that will develop environmentally friendly techniques for car motors and other devices, the billionaire who is setting up the firm said Saturday. No doubt, George boned up on issues relating to the combustion engine as he researched his role as mechanic/handyman on The Facts of Life. It's really great that he's taking time out from filming Oceans 47 to do something to fix the planet for the rest of us plebs.

In more breaking news, Tootie will be co-chairing the IMF, Mrs. Garret will oversee Peace Corps and Blair will be events planner for the "We the Peoples" movement for the UN.

Clooney is a latter-day Jane Fonda: a proud liberal and another non-talented "actor" who can parlay their physical acumens into fame because as people like Jessica Simpson, Britney Spearsk, Pamela Anderson prove , one needs not have more than junior high school musical talent to be famous in Hollywood.

The Swiss were actually considering Al Gore for the position but stated they thought he might be running for President.

So their second choice, a so so actor who never even managed to graduate from college.

I laughed my ass off when I read that article.

Please...they just wanted a pretty face and a "name" to represent their company!

Get outta my way, fat Al-e-Gorey, and don't block the barf bucket or you will be sorry. My vomitacorium finger is getting raw lately with this rush to the holy green forefront. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE wild things, I just can't stand b.s. grandstanding in any form.

So, y'all love the environment, right? You just can't stand egotistical pretentiousness? Just want to be sure I get you're message right.
