I Heart The Pitter-Patter of Carbon Footprints

When I was a reporter I had my first child. It was a slow news day. I think it was a Saturday and another reporter and I were just talking the day away while listening to the police scanner.

He said he was never going to have children because the world was such an awful place. I laughed and said I at least wanted to field a basketball team. He was quite simply aghast. I'm not kidding you when I tell you that he honestly believed that I was wrong to even contemplate such a thing. Don't I care about the world? Overcrowding? Global warming?

At the time I just laughed because I thought that would annoy him. I know. I know. I try to be a good person but sometimes I just have to tweak the looney tunes secularists a little bit so I said maybe I'd make it a baseball team.

Now as a father of five children I have actually been approached by absolute strangers who ask me point blank in front of my children if "I'm done." It's unbelievable but true. Some people after a few niceties have inquired whether I cared about the planet at all?

I've never known exactly what to say...that is until yesterday when a frequent visitor on this blog named Meg upped the tweaking ante by creating the perfect t-shirt for just such a situation. It's hilarious. Go visit her site at Promo Presto if you're interested. She actually makes t-shirts. No matter what though I thought many of you would get a kick out of it.

What? Only five??? Let's get busy, man. We've got a whole world to repopulate with Catholics. It's time to GET DOWN!!!

To the matter at hand. Yeah, that's what I meant.

Love it, Meg! Does it come in maternity sizes?

Meg said...

Tina, it sure does - we think that's a very appropriate way to wear it.

by having more children, are we not simply diversifying the genepool - thereby making humanity more adaptable in the event of natural disaster or climate change?

"are we not simply diversifying the genepool"

Sexy.

"c'mon honey, let's go diversify the gene pool!'

It gives diversity training a whole new look. Would probably be a lot better attended.

My favorite is a shirt which reads on the front, "Before you even ask". . .and has a list of comeback on the back. It saves you a lot of time with ignorant tree huggers

Since plants need CO2, we could say we are "Saving the rain forests, one breath at a time."

Sometimes we are just doing more for the Environment.

To those people, just suggest to them they should committ suicide if they are really concerned about Global warming etc

Ask them "which one of my kids has a less right to make a carbon footprints than you??"
