Happy Earth Day! Though I’m far from a tree hugging environmentalist, even I agree it should be common sense to do what we can to take care of this planet. It’s not like we can all just move to Uranus if we mess this one up. BTW, Mobil One (As in the oil) has an Earth Day Drive Away contest Mecca is helping promote where the grand prize is a gas guzzling SUV. I fucking kid you not…
Anyway, with that said, here is The Nest’s tribute to the greenest of all days. I know Marilyn will enjoy seeing this one again. It was inspired by Walt Kelly’s famous 1971 Earth Day comic that ran in his Pogo strip. We have met the enemy, and he is us…
This was Comic #156.
“Critterkind is in a total shambles” might be the most truthful statement ever said. Well done.
The world is definitely full of feral beasts. So many folks these days don’t have a clue about discipline, or respect. Which is saddening.
Well I’m sure there are a bunch of us who don’t want to move anywhere near Uranus……..wait……what did I just say??????? Remember the good old days when people would say “the world is my oyster”…..nowadays I think it’s changed to “the world is my trashcan”…..we have been dancing on the edge of oblivion too long – time to straighten up and take care of our world.
Uranus is renamed in the future to Urectum.
The enemy really IS us. Between the littering a-holes who like to toss the remnants of KFC lunch in our woods, to the people who dump their old refrigerators in the rivers, I sometimes wonder if we are just too stupid to have a planet of our own! I love this post and yes, I really AM glad to see it again!

Earth Day where the morons trash one more park in honor of our home planet. Go Evil Squirrrel!
We should round all these people up and send them to Uranus. Or to somebody’s anus, anyway.
Mobile One needs gas guzzling SUVs to stay in business while they are destroying the world. Switching to wind or solar power seems too easy for oil companies to morph toward.
