"Hand me the gun. No, the bigger one." -- David Thompson

Was that for real?

Please tell me that was an Onion parody or something similar.

It's real, isn't it?

Really, really real, isn't it?

Oh. Dear. God. I don't even remember the last time I carried on like that over anything. Since age eight or nine, maybe.

On the plus side, come election day they'll probably be camped out in the woods somewhere, stoned out of their minds and wailing for the trees. Yes, it's probably best for everyone if the hippies just stay in their natural habitats.

Damn that Dukakis and his weekend furloughs.

It was both. Sad and disgusting.

Oh! My white brothers.

This is great.
Now I truly understand how much I make the hippies cry, what with all my wood choppin' and four-wheelin'...

Thank you, Gerald. I laughed my butt off!

I, uh, am going with "funniest thing I have seen all day" on that one.

If they really cared, they'd stop crying and do something-- like organize the tree community.

I can't stop laughing watching this.

Where's a bear when you need one?

At first I thought it was going to be a satire film in which a gun-toting man goes into the forest and saves a bunch of lost, whiny tree-huggers.

It was still freakin' hilarious ... and disturbing only in that weepy loony-toons like that have political power in America. Good thing those folks and their friends are setting energy policy for the country, huh?

You guys are just too negative. Get out there and hug a tree. Really hard. Closer.

Besides, the exercise is good for your lungs.

I don't think these were hippies; there weren't any long-haired men. This might a film about normal people. Uh-oh.

More likely, it's just an excuse to go out into the deep woods and feed mosquitoes. Kinda like hunting and fishing. But for city folks.

The announcer sounds BBC. They're the folks who did the famous spoof about the spaghetti harvest.

Listen. I love nature as much as the next guy. But really, do you have to show this stuff in public? It's just embarrassing. I feel like I lost brain cells.

I should sue.
