Unclear on the Concept

Just so you know, Mr. I-Drive-a-Hybrid-Smugmobile-Because-I-CARE ...

That evil-smelling cigar the size of a small log you were smoking and dribbling ash out the window as you drove? It isn't doing Gaia's tender membranes any favors. Plus it makes the person behind you (you remember, making choking motions? Vanity plate that says ISNARK?) question your commitment to the eco-fanatic cause. Perhaps you think a vast fleet of Maxwell's demons determins the origin of each molecule of greenhouse gases (such as cigar effluvia) and only allows those generated by non-hybrid cars to affect the environment? Or maybe you think you are special.

And yes, I could smell it even though all my windows were rolled up. They don't design automotive air filters for chemical warfare environments. Unfortunately.

But ... but ... a Ceegar isn't polution! Dontcha know? Wonder how much CO2 that puts out, hmmmm?

Of course, I've been known to actually smoke a cigar once or twice (three times, actually). And I used to smoke the eeevil cigarettes and *cough* other stuff as available. Gave up all the tobaccy stuff about 20 years ago, and then had the ceegars in the past 2 years. I guess I'd better go buy some carbon credits!

Betcha it was a Cooban seegar, too. Demonstrating his solidarity with the Third Worlders who live in harmony with their environment by using only machinery made from recycled reactionary journalists and powered solely by all the hot air generated by Fidel's latest brush with dyspepsia, dontcha know...
