Armored Car - Without Penis?
U.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders are now supporting delaying a legally binding climate pact until 2010 or even later, under a compromise deal for next month's Copenhagen summit. Instead, in Copenhagen, diplomats will aim to reach a less aggressive — and much less specific — "politically binding" agreement, with the hope that hard numbers and legal obligations to reduce climate change would be added soon, in a two-step approach. This could be a step-by-step approach that actually produces results - as many of us hope we're seeing with the Obama Administration - or simply more delaying and diluting of things that really need to be done - as many of us fear we're seeing with the Obama Administration. Time will tell.
In Strange News...What’s the world coming to when your $1.45 million bulletproof SUV with gold trim, a highly expensive Vertu cellphone and three bottles of premium vodka is no longer available with its whale-penis-skin interior? We have environmentalists and Pamela Anderson to thank for this. Dartz, the company that makes the armored luxury SUV for corporate CEOs, has scuttled the exotic material and has now put out a press release in all-caps “ARMORED CAR WITHOUT PENIS. LET’S SAVE THE WHALES.” Ah, the sacrifices our very, very wealthy are making!
