Have you seen the shirt at CarTalk.com? These guys are a great listen on Saturday mornings, on NPR of all places. Their sense of humor is great.

"In celebration of our 20th year on NPR, we've brought back one of the classic pieces of our early history. This t-shirt features the logo of one of our favorite charities, the "Save The Skeets" Foundation, dedicated to protecting the lives and habitat of skeets worldwide. Did you know that every day in this country, thousands of skeets are maliciously and wantonly destroyed, all for the sporting pleasure of us humans? We think that's wrong, and that's why we urge you to join us in the fight to "Save the Skeets!"

Are those skeets anything like those snipes I kept on hunting when I was a scout?

I understand that there have been a couple of attempts to pass laws to "Protect the skeet" after some silly goofball heard about gunners going out to "shoot some Skeets". I understand one such went almost to the final vote before it ended in embarrassment. I wish I could find the stories. I have done a few searches and couldn't find them. I remember the mirth when they happened though.

Kinda like the laws that DID get passed to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide (Water.) For THAT fun look at http://www.dhmo.org/environment.html .

*WOW*... those guys do a *REALLY* good job at making themselves look serious and legit! Right down to selling T-shirts and providing the MSDS for water (carefully disguised)!!! What a funny joke... however, aside from a joke it seems there might be some other purpose to what they are doing since they HAVE gone to such great lengths (like selling T-Shirts)... are you aware of some other campaign they are fighting and are using this campaign as a sort of counter-prototype or something??? Y'know, like an inside joke to make their point???

I would be temped to buy one if the money wasn't going to fund NPR.
NPR is great. The have a reputation for a strong lefty slant, but I find their news reporting on programs like "all things considered" is generally much more fair than what you get from the mainstream media, mainly because they take so much more time and go into much greater detail on all of the angles. And, of course, their non-news programs are some of the best on the air. Not just Click and Clack, either, "The Prairie Home Companion" and "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" are great entertainment.

I don't necessarily agree with public funding for radio and television, but to my mind that's a reason to support them, to reduce their need for tax dollars, rather than to avoid supporting them.
