Shell. Let's Go.

Inspired by a link in GD, be sure to give it a kick and rec:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002825447

A satire site invites you to create your own Shell "Let's Go" poster, like the one I made below.



The website is here: http://arcticready.com/social

Play a cool game on their "Just for Kids" page:

Just for Kids: Angry Bergs

Right now, the polar ice caps of our planet are melting.

That's bad—but it's also good!

That's right! It's bad because our planet needs ice at the poles. But it's good because when the polar ice melts, we at Shell can go up there to get more oil, which can do a whole lot of things. Thanks to oil:

Mommy and Daddy can drive to the store to buy you new toys.
Companies like Mattel™ can build new toys.
Engineers can drive to work to design new, better toys that are even more fun to play with.
When you're done with your toys, trucks can take them away to dispose of.


Oil can even help us fix some of the problems that melting ice causes.

So it's fine to be sad about our melting polar ice caps, and about how sad that makes the planet—but remember to be glad as well, because of all that the oil we're finding there is letting you do, now and far into the future!

2. Skinner said it's a Greenpeace creation....

But the rhetoric sounds like it could actually be a shell production.

3. god, yes

it sounded *juuuuust** over the top enough to be parody, but....fucking repukes ARE so over the top, it really is hard to tell.

I mean, just the fact that these parodies DO sound so close to the truth of the GOP™ (a wholly owned subsidiary of the Fossil Fuel Profit Monopoly) is very revealing, n'est pas?
