Okay, this post has a title now — happy, Gromulin?

Check this out. I make that three 24-inch computer monitors and a thirty-inch television. Behind him. Where he can’t even see it.

Oh, yeah…the fat fuck in the middle is Al Gore.

You know, I have a brand new 23-inch monitor, and I find I can watch a movie, surf the web and do Photoshop on it, all at one time, no problemo. And if I believed CO2 emissions were swiftly destroying the whole fucking planet, I could probably do it on a 15-inch monitor. Or, even more convincing, not at all.

The picture? From Time magazine‘s 2007 profile of Gore, from when they made him Man of the Year. And how did I find it? Al uses it in the sidebar of his own blog.

Yeah, see, that’s what gets me. I expect the hypocrisy — I expect celebrity boneheads to live like gods while scolding me about the lavishness of my pretty damned modest lifestyle. But I am always stunned — every single TIME — that they don’t even realize there’s an issue there.

Al thinks it’s a really cool picture that makes him look all science-y and super-smart and stuff, with the stacks of paper and the globe and, like, FOUR monitors and shit! And the fact he’s a giant useless electricity suck who got rich warning other people to cut back on electricity or we’re all gonna DIE…just does not compute.

My old mother used to say, it’s like taking the back off the television and explaining the innards to the dog.

You need to apologize to the dogs of the world for that last remark.

The inventor of the internet and “The Con” has been in hiding for weeks now. His carbon output will ultimately give him away. We just need to analyze where electricity, jet fuel and coal usage is up and we’ll have our man.

Now, you KNOW he uses that setup to play World of Warcraft. He’s REALLY REALLY SERIAL about finding Manbearpig and destroying him once and for all….

(hell, i didn’t even realize that manbearpig had a character in WoW. I know Mike Rowe does)

P.S. You need to ask UB something. Is it considered wrong for a guy to have a pair of pants with his family coat of arms sewn to both back pockets? he basically has his coat of arms on his ass……

Wease, the picture of Gore can’t be 1997. Not with those big flat-screen monitors. Or, of course, maybe he invented them 5 years ahead of everyone else.

Gore has a coat of arms?!?

WTF is it? Two snakeoil salesmen rampant on a background of gold with bullshit shields?

It does the world no credit that anyone can contemplate Al Gore without laughing. He’s the most transparently obvious crook I’ve ever seen.

Besides, what two adult male coprophages do in the privacy of their own trailer and share with Al via podcast is nobody else’s bidness!

Actually UB, it’s a Cow-Irker of mine. He was getting up to grab his lunch, and I saw the gold embroidery on the back of his pants.

Can’t tease the guy too much though. His girlfriend is HAWT!…

I just had a good laugh imagining those monitors as cardboard mock-ups, like the ones they put in model homes.

His assistants pocketed the cash. It’s been two years, and he STILL hasn’t noticed.

Is he wearing a bib? He should be, look at how he sits there mouth agape, synapses frozen. He might think that picture makes him look smart, but it makes me think he needs a drool cup.

This cracks me up…one way to help save the world? According to Repower America, “Turn off electronic devices — Simply turning off your television, DVD player, stereo, and computer [or perhaps the TV behind you] when you’re not using them will save you thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide a year.”

Found that quote via a link on…algore’s blog.

a coworker just gave this to me. Off-Topic, but worth it..

A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his
While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel
decided to pose a question to all assembled.

He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he
failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep.

He posed the question of just how much of sex was “work” and how much of
it was “pleasure?”

A Major chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work.
A Captain said it was 50-50%.
A lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon
his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in
charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?

Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, “Sir, it has to be 100%
The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why?

“Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me
doing it for them.”

The room fell silent.

God Bless the enlisted man.

I guess he’s proud of those extra monitors–proud enough to turn them so the camera gets a good view. They don’t seem to be positioned conveniently.

I can’t believe I said something this stupid, either. A P-shop suggestion/request: replace the images on algore’s monitors with appropriate screen-caps of sweasel.com, Ace, and any other right-of-center blogger of your choosing. On the TV behind algore, throw up a shot of Sarah Palin at the R Convention.

Hilarity will ensue.

I’m fairly confident those are Apple 30-inch monitors, so the TV in the background is probably 37-46 inches. (He is on the Apple board of directors, which should give him a really good discount in addition to all of the stock options.)

With regard to the cardboard mock-up suggestion, remember the Dilbert cartoon in which the Pointy Haired Boss was given an Etch-a-Sketch instead of a real laptop. When the screen filled up, he had to shake it to “save the file”.
