When it became clear that the media is gearing up for Global Warming Fearfest 2k6, with the former almost-President to take a starring role, it was a source of some consternation. Al Gore is the sort of person you don’t mind as long as you only have to hear about him every year or so (ie. “In other news, Al Gore is still pretty crazy… on to the weather.”).
Fear not, for there’s a perfect way to deal with this annoyance. Just picture everyone’s new favorite environmental activist singing:
Im an ape man, Im an ape-ape man, oh Im an ape man
Im a King Kong man, Im a voodoo man
Im an ape man
I look out my window, but I cant see the sky
Cause the air pollution is fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man.
“Apeman” is a great Kinks song, whether or not you’re a hippy.
