Greenpeace need a new tag.

Well, I got my regular junk email from Greenpeace today. I was really good and didn't delete it straight away, as usual.

Just as well, as Greenpeace are apparently looking for a new slogan. To quote Greenpeace (ie cutting and pasting the relevant bit from my email):
Create a Greenpeace peace slogan

We would like your ideas about potential slogans, visuals and logos for a new communication challenge we're facing.

Our goal: to inspire the public about nuclear disarmament so people feel empowered to act. We?d like to focus on people who are worried about nuclear weapons, but are doubtful the problem can be solved. We want to stop talking about "doom and gloom", and start talking about the very real possibilities for greater peace in a world that is free from nuclear weapons.

We want to create optimistic communications to encourage the creation of Nuclear Weapons Free Zones around the world. So, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a slogan, logo or visual representation about the above.

How about: STOP IRAN NOW! Keep North Korea Nukefree! Landrights for gay whales?

OF course, the only people who will think that this sort of 'initiative' could have any impact on the world are too busy cowering under their tinfoil hats to look at what's going on in the rest of the world (that is, the world that isn't considered western civilisation).

A quick squiz at JihadWatch will show that there are plenty out there who are more than happy to deal with nukular weaponry. Personally I find the idea that our own allies have access to this sort of stuff quite comforting.

I got some quite bizarre spam today:

Serial ballbusters - Real life ballbusting violence on the streets
The pink umbrella

Maria is attacked by a junk who wants to take her cigarette pack... She strikes back by kicking him in the balls as hard as she can... He tries to run away with her cigarettes, but she uses her pink umbrella to grab him by the groin from behind ! Ouch ! A really, really violent and sadistic self-defense move ! She then grabs him by the balls and she finishes him...

Gotta love that 'pink umbrella' bit. A touch of genius, that.

So, timt is suggesting the new slogan for Greenpeace should be "serial ballbusters" or "real life ballbusting violence" - come on kids - join up now!

I just wanna know if all umbrella colours will be welcome at Greenpeace, once they adopt this tim's new slogan, or are they umbrella bigots?

Slogan for Greenpeace

Greenpeace - We're more interested in pieces of green.

Nick's shadowy acquaintance Jai, has a terrific knack for dealing with Greenpeace/Amnesty Internationa/WWF beggers in the street.

When they ask the question: "Are you concerned about whales/political prisoners/pandas?", Jai answers "No, I don't care actually. I really couldn't give a toss. Endangered? Serves them right for not being fit enough to survive." And then takes great delight in seeing the very dismayed looks.

Very effective.
