This is a shortened week this week thanks to the holiday and our travel schedules, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a douchebag worthy of note this week. The winners this week are two staff writers for the Washington Post and the non-profit Bon Appetit Management Company Foundation. You may be asking yourself what two staff writers and a non-profit could have done to deserve this honor while so many douchebags are walking free around the world. Well, in the holiday spirit, they have gone and told you how you should celebrate Thanksgiving.
Not that you shouldn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, though that would be much better for the planet, they want to tell you HOW to celebrate it.
Seems global warming (never mind the fact that the earth has been cooling since 1998 while CO2 output has increased) has impacted the getting together with family and friends to give thanks industry. How? Who cares, it has! Facts be damned!
A holiday all about seasonal food presents a real opportunity to eat sustainably. But making the right choices is more complicated than you think. Should you buy local or organic? Or is what you eat — and how much — more important?
Researchers are racing to find an answer.
Is it really that complicated? No. And who are these researchers racing to find an answer? We’re willing to bet dollars to donuts that the Bon Appetit Management Company Foundation gets some federal funds, if not now, in the near future. What a scam, what a waste of time and money, and who the hell cares?
It’s Thanksgiving, for crying out loud. Will these hippies and government leeches ever stop? No, they won’t. They’re all about the power and having control over you. For this they are truly douchebags. And this week they are the winners of Douchebag of the Week.
Eat well, drink much, have fun and Happy Thanksgiving.
