Three Hundred Million Americans!!
We're not going to be celebrating here at The OP Blog, though (that would be the royal "we"). Oh, no. It's not that we don't like babies, we just don't like the number 300,000,000. Unnatural number of zeroes, don't you think? That's a lot of America for the world the absorb, no matter how cute that Gerber kid is.

Capitalism Gone Awry: Big Oil
This is the first in a new series that will explore why and how overpopulation sometimes ruins parts of capitalistic societies.
Take Big Oil.
I am very mad that I'm having to pay $30 to fill up my wussy car every week while this doofus is getting $400 million just for retiring (from a company that is charging me $30 a week for gas). Um, no. Also, an analyst interviewed on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams (I predict a blog entry on "analysts" in the near future) suggested that consumers have only themselves to blame for rising prices because they are the ones creating the demand. Well, I'm demanding that analyst shut the hell up because it's not like we have any alternatives.
Everyone seems to be blaming everyone else for the sky-high prices, but really it's just because there are too many people on earth. So many, in fact, that we've seemingly become powerless in the face of abuse by certain large corporations that have rendered us completely dependent on the product they supply.
This has been an example of Capitalism Gone Awry.
Since that wasn't light-hearted at all, here's something to lift your spirits from The Gilded Moose. JT pretty much always cracks me up.

A New Starbucks Every 5 Hours!
If I got anyone excited with my title, I'm sorry (god, I didn't even put in the effort to come up with an orginial title). I'll try to work in some SNL humor later in the week. Until then, I'm just going to apologize for the patheticness of this post and blame it on overpopulation. That's generally what I like to do.

Happy Earth Day!
(Thank you, Megan, for sending me the link. I know you have mixed feelings about aiding and abetting my many internet crusades. I probably do need help of some sort.)

The completely useless word "defenestrate!"
v : throw through or out of the window; "The rebels stormed the palace and defenestrated the President."
Ha! What idiot thought up that example sentence? Probably the same one who thought up the word. I think we may have a problem with the number of people who make up words (and example sentences). We really don't need "defenestrate," so stop using it.
Basically, if it happens, the virus will have a lot of potential host material. So, I probably wouldn't be writing this blog anymore which kind of sucks because what else am I supposed to at work?

Dear Tom and Katie,
You're either part of the problem or part of the solution. And in so many ways, you are most definitely part of the problem.
Your friends at The Overpopulation Blog
Oh, who am I kidding? They have no friends here. As if the addition of another celebrity baby wasn't bad enough (we've got too many already), conclusive proof of an overstaffed media has arrived in the form of the stupidest baby nickname in known history. Since TomKat is definitely not a friend of this blog (reproducing and all), they are getting my first ever Blacklist Award (so demeaning it requires a font change). Damn you, TomKat! Why can't you be more like Matt Damon?!
P.S. The only way TomKat will be de-Blacklisted is if the Tomkitten inherits Katie's supernatural mouth-opening abilities. Our successors are going to need this type of superior gene make-up.
