It’s easy to be pessimistic and cynical about the times we live in. But watching the delight from these little guys who just needed legs to run can melt even the coldest heart and say so much about overcoming obstacles.
The Lizard Brain award goes to the organizers of this year’s UN climate change conference in Lima, Peru. Eleven football fields of temporary structures, jet fuel for the private jets to get there, rented buses and limousines for 11,000 people to get around, and much more, all taking fossil fuels, made a huge carbon footprint.
Maybe we should have a “do as I say, not as I do” award. We might call it the Al Gore award.
The Neanderthal award goes to Greenpeace. To show their “concern” for the future of the Earth, they managed to cause irreversible damage to an ancient archaeological site in the desert of Peru.
Criminal charges are pending.
The Pants on Fire award goes either to Canadian dog trainer Trevor Dvernichuk, who claims that Justin Bieber abandoned his Bulldog Karma and won’t pay the bill or reclaim the dog.
Or to Justin Bieber and his father, Jeremy, who claim Dvernichuk stole the dog after Jeremy threw her either off a second story balcony or into a snowdrift.
I don’t want to get involved with any of these people ever again.
