[FILL IN TITLE FOR POST ABOUT GREENPEACE SNAFU HERE]

When Greenpeace mobilized to protest nuclear energy at a recent appearance by President Bush to promote his nuclear energy policy, they forgot to fill in all the boiler-plate.

From the Greenpeace anti-nuclear-armageddon flier. Capitals and brackets are theirs:

    In the twenty years since the Chernobyl tragedy, the world’s worst nuclear accident, there have been nearly [FILL IN ALARMIST AND ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOID HERE].”

I recognize this technique: it’s the same tact I take in blogging when I can’t think of the post’s token witticism.

Okay, guys, it’s fun time! Finish Greenpeace’s sentence for them! Keep in mind that there have been remarkably few nuclear disasters since Chernobyl, so make it as ridiculous as you can. For example: “In the twenty years since the Chernobyl tragedy, the world’s worst nuclear accident, there have been nearly fifty mutated giant ants let loose on the heartland of America.” Only [FILL IN SOMETHING FUNNIER HERE].

Winner gets all sorts of babes.

    that’s funny. it’s actually similar to what focus on the family is doing with editorial letters. you can go to their website, chose some paragraphes from drop down menues, and VOILA, you have an “original” letter to send to the editor of your local newspaper, letting them know that in the twenty years since the Chernobyl tragedy, gay people been fuckin’ all over the place, and now they want to be thought of as actual people with valid relationships.
