A third of the way through their 50-city, 2006 Accidents and Accusations concert tour, the group has announced that it will partner with Conservation International (CI) to offset the carbon footprint associated with the tour.
Now, a carbon footprint is defined as: a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.
Seeing as how humans produce CO2 just by exhaling, I had hoped that this announcement meant that they'd not only be cancelling their tour in exchange for early retirement, but would also be shutting the eff up for the remainder of their existence.
Oh well. Maybe they'll at least refrain from using their celebrity as a political soapbox and just stick to Dueling Banjos.
And maybe the bitch above me will listen to something other than "Leaving on a Jet-Plane" and "Gold Digger" in a continuous loop for hours and hours on end while tossing bowling pins on the floor as she gracefully tap dances her 738 pound frame across the hardwood floor in some designer concrete clogs.
