Most Disgusting Environmentalist Idea Yet

Fortunately, we haven’t heard Sheryl Crow or Laurie David preaching this idea to us, yet, but it shows the disgusting lengths to which environmentalists will go to make life disgusting and absurd.
Today, at a movie screening, I used the Women’s restroom of the swanky theater. In all the stalls there was a sign facing the user:

Please do not deposit sanitary napkins in toilets. Thank You. The Mgmt.

But wait:
Then, there was something written on each sign (I checked –each stall had the same thing):

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Hate to be graphic, but “Reuse” or “Recycle” a feminine napkin? Do they know what they are used to absorb? Hello . . . ?
Eeuuww. And that’s kind of my reaction to the entire “global warming” environmentalist crowd: Eeuuww.

Surely the sign couldn’t be refering to the sanitary ……..stuff. (And don’t call the sign Shirley)

Toilet paper? Recycle? What, stuff it in your purse?
Maybe just use tampons on odd/even days?
This makes sense to these extreme tree-huggers.
Remember Sheryl Crow’s suggestion of 1 square of TP.
Not going to happen.

Why don’t we all tell Al Gore and his environmental disciples to take his inconvenient lies and put his advise into practise with it? In other words, he should reduce,ruese,and recycle his global warming hoax. Maybe he’d best dispose,disregard,and dismiss his presidential cadidacy altogether while he is at it. He has agitated the environment by entoxicating it with his global warming rubbish which he manufactured. At least we ought to give the guy credit for having a creative imagination to fabricate a far fetched deception like global warming hence on while denying the existence of global terrorism and the real threat that it poses to the western ( and far eastern) hemisphere of our planet.

Don’t any of you get the feeling that this is related to something sexual??

Debbie please don’t take this wrong – but what is with your use of the Valley Girl refrain “Hello…?”. Yeah I know you are from Michigan not the San Fernando Vally and its your blog.

Debbie, I think some clown is simply jerking your chain and you have reacted exactly as the clown hoped you would. As much as I would like to blame this on the Goracle and his ilk, I don’t really think we can assign this idiocy to them. It is simply someone with a very crude sense of humor. Gross!!

Debbie, you’re not being resourceful:
“Baruch she’lo assani isha!”
Heh. 😉

At my job, we use a lot of canned food. Management wants us to rinse out the cans before they’re recycled, because letting them sit in the recycling without being washed was attracting pests. I explained to everyone that the water we waste on washing our garbage is more valuable than the empty cans, which are not really usable and get shipped to China, where they may or may not be reused…who knows. I recommended throwing out the cans to save water and keep our kitchen clean. Management insisted that it was wasteful to throw out the cans. These recycling people are wasteful fanatics. And even recycling clean bottles has unintended consequences. In my apartment complex (new, suburban and nice), bums constantly root through our dumpsters and recycling bins at all hours, looking for cans and bottles they can redeem for cash. In other words, recycling attracts the homeless to a neighborhood they would ordinarily not frequent. Oh well, I guess the recycling advocates would say I’m a snob for not wanting to run into homeless people every time I take out the garbage.

Actually cans are pretty useful to recycle braise_allah. Metal is worth more than water, financially speaking. Now plastic, on the other hand, you would have a pretty good case for not washing and recycling.

lol, Debbie, you got it wrong.
The reason pads shouldn’t be flushed is that it tends to clog the toilet. A clogged toilet can overflow and flood the bathroom floor, causing property damage and unnecessary costs to the building manager.
It has nothing to do with recycling.
The fact that you saw a recycling message on a toilet sign is more of an unfortunate juxtaposition of messages than a call to re-use sanitary napkins.
