I just got an invitation via facebook to join the “Climate Emergency Fast,” which is basically a thing where you agree not to eat for a day, from wherever you are, in order to raise awareness for global climate issues. The day for this fast is September 4th.
I support activism as much as the next guy. And I’m all for raising awareness on global climate issues. But seriously will anyone really notice if I don’t eat for a day?
I think the better idea is to eat something really disgusting like centipedes or cockroaches. And to do it at the most crowded time possible in the cafeteria. People will come up to me. “Why the hell are you eating that?”
And I’ll say, “Well, I’m glad you asked…”
