Tiny Tim vs. Al Gore?

So Tiny Tim was the father of the global warming movement? Yeah, that fits. Make sure you at least make it to the chorus where he starts screaming "The Icecaps are meltin Oh-oh-oh-oh-OOOOOOOh!"

But you've got to decide who's crazier? Tiny Tim is the obvious kind of bonkers that you see on street corners and cross the street to avoid whereas Al Gore is the more dangerous kind of looney that isn't immediately apparent and you don't know he's flipped until he's sitting in your living room eating your Chinese food and lecturing you that your freezer's running too high.

So compare Gore's performance with Tiny Tim's and tell me who you think is crazier.



Now, you tell me how Tiny Tim's performance is any more embarassing or less looney than this:



Two walk into the cage. Only one walks out. You decide. Who is crazier?

  1. I'm laughing so hard right now, but I suppose I ought not to be...who IS crazier? Why do sheeple believe in the new environmental religion?

  2. At least Tim is so fried on acid that he wouldn't have the strength to physically detain my child, or belittle him about emitting carbon dioxide.

    Just who were those hippies who allowed that freak to dance around their shocked and frightened children? Damn, I hate hippies.

  3. Blackrep, I don't think Tiny Tim was on acid. Maybe you've read something I've haven't, but my impression from what I've heard about him was that it was partly his own eccentricity and partly an act.

    Interestingly, Tiny Tim was also a big Catholic, as it turns out:

    Baby, it's COLD outside!

  6. Tiny Tim didn't smoke, drink or take drugs. He was a devout Christian. When he married Miss Vicky on the Johnny Carson show, he and his lovely bride refused champagne and asked for milk instead.

  7. "Tiny Tim didn't smoke, drink or take drugs. He was a devout Christian."

    Do you mean in spite of being a devout Christian or because of it?

  8. Who is crazier? I'm looking at the CBS newsroom and the CBS guy/gal who added the violin background music to pull our emotional strings. Is the violin pure propaganda or extreme gullibility?

  9. I'll take Tiny Tim over Algore any day. His bit in this song was an act, Algore is serious.

  10. Sounds like the Clash, "London Calling."

    The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
    Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
    A nuclear error, but I have no fear
    London is drowning-and I live by the river

    CHANGED TO:

    The ice fields are thinning, the carbons blowing up
    Because engines are running, the warmists run amuck
    A hockeystick error, but I have no fear
    London's not burning - but I'm a DENIER!!

  11. When TTim was performing The Ice Caps Are Melting, it was during that rime period when students were being told that if we did not stop driving cars that by the year 2000 all or North America would be under a 20 foot sheet of ice. He was poking fun at the Global Cooling Crowd of his day!

  12. It reminded me of a Sunday School song

  13. Dave Stephens:

    Holy Moley! That DOES look like the Clash! Could it be that Al borrowed that?

    I loved this. We should have more of these "who's crazier?". Impossible to run of of them.

  14. Correction. Should have typed, "out of them".

    BTW, I spent some time with Tipper Gore for a charity thingy once. Have to say that she really is SUPER nice. And totally...ah...normal. Just don't get that. Anyway, God bless her.
