Earth Day Swears It’s Turning “A Young 36″

Apr 5, 2010 by Tree Humper

Broken News

CrumpleEarthIn spite of widespread publicity on Earth Day’s impending 40th birthday, the worldwide celebration of all things environmentally friendly insisted it is only turning 36 years old on April 22.

“Come on, do I look 40?” Earth Day said, sporting a haircut that inspired whispers of a midlife crisis. Earth Day  was—reportedly—started in 1970 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord (heh) Nelson. This year, celebrations have been planned around the world for its 40th year, but Earth Day dismissed the idea as unnecessary and “simply the wrong year!”

World Environment Day, which has engaged in an understated but bitter rivalry with Earth Day since the late 1980s, laughed at Earth Day’s denial of the 40-year mark. “Come on,” it said. “I’m 38, and I know full well that I didn’t exist when Earth Day got going. So how can that slut claim to be 36? Does it think we’re retarded?”

When told of the comment, Earth Day said that no, it does not think we’re retarded. It offered no alternative explanation for the confusion, though. The 40th birthday celebrations are apparently moving forward in spite of Earth Day’s objections. According to an anonymous aide, Earth Day will undergo significant Botox procedures before the 22nd in an effort to “put its best face forward.”

    Southpark is quite funny but some of the scenes maybe a bit too morbid even for adults.-’;

    Google’s constant update is an effort to give the searchers the most relevant
    and updated information when they search on any topic.
    This is since you will certainly not like your money to get wasted on some false
    company. First it analyses your business type and nature to thoroughly understand your
    niche along with your audience.

    you hired an SEO company and they were SO smart that
    they had figured out Google’s algorithm and gotten you the spots you paid them to get you strategically.
