Eco-wacko update: The triumphant return of the three dog night

by editor on August 21, 2011

Remember Three Dog Night, the rock band that had a string of hits in the late ’60s and early ’70s? They had three lead singers and the oddest name this side of Strawberry Alarm Clock.

"The dingo ate my economy!"

Wikipedia explains the origin of the name:

…vocalist Danny Hutton’s then-girlfriend June Fairchild suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground whilst embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and if the night was freezing, it was a “three dog night”.

Well, sad to say, but the eco-wackos of the world want to take us back to the technological level of the Australian aboriginies.

Check out the recommendation provided by Living Greener, an Australian government website:

To reduce the energy you use while watching TV, take another tip from grandma and share the warmth. Snuggle up under a rug, snuggle with your family or cuddle your favourite pet.

And if it’s really, really cold, cuddle with Al Gore. That big, pudgy pile of suet could keep your entire family toasty.

I have 4 dogs and 2 cats, does that mean I can sell my excess heat to the power company? 😉

This is NOT going to work well with our two snakes.

“Staying in the shower uses up to 20 times as much energy as getting out and standing under two heat lamps instead. Even a few extra minutes in the shower will add to your power bill.”

Is the fool that wrote this article for real? Is he saying we should scrub our pits and lower regions less often to lower our energy costs? I have to use a heat lamp in my wellhouse during the winter to keep the water from freezing and can tell you for a fact that they use a lot more electricity than my gas fired water heater. And I don’t smell like a skid row wino during the winter months either.

Maybe he should buy one of those “Snuggie” things advertised on late night television. Then he could lay around in warm comfort while scratching his stinking ass.

No self-respecting dog would put up with that.

I just asked my dog, after he got done licking his ass and eating out of the cat’s litter box — he says he would never lie down next to Rosie — he has his standards.

Are these the same Australians who are killing kangaroos for the sake of the environment?

Camels. They are killing feral camels.

Didn’t some people say that we should kill dogs or whatever? So now we have to adopt them? Can’t these people make up their darn minds?

Wait until the Nimrods realize that the carbon footprint of having a dog , is really really bad. I saw data last year that would have set the movement back years . Lassie , ( even Black Lassie– Cheech & Chong ) and all his love , getting thrown to the corn field , for MOTHER EARTH. As the like minded false worshippers of old might say — ” Scarifices , there must be Sacrifices.

On the other hand , we had a women that lived a few doors down , who had probably 14 shepards. Most likely her alarm system. But you never know.

This will only lead to nutty psychiatrists trying to make bestiality normal.

I thought that was what PETA was going to try to do with their new porn site.

Actually, that seems like a pretty good idea. I’d be glad to give it a try, as pictured. Just get that dam dog outta there!

Speaking of Al Gore, we could probably keep a whole STADIUM warm in the winter if we put him to good use and set him on fire. Just think, all that blubber would burn for hours.

This still isn’t as bad as Sheryl Crow once suggesting that people limit their toilet paper use in order to supposedly save the earth. “Are you strong enough to be my man?” Sheryl Crow once sang. Probably not unless a lot of air freshener was on hand.
