I is coming out finally

HAL 9000 Moderator
At long last I have to admit it No I'm not a Raving Tree Hugging Lonnie, a Greenie or anything similar.

However I do have to admit that we have to look after this planet and do our up most to protect it and stop Pollution as much as possible.

I have come to this conclusion not because I'm overly concerned about Carbon Pollution or anything similar but I truly believe that this is important because

EARTH is the only planet that we know of that has Chocolate.

Now can anyone disagree with the need to protect the planet as much as possible to ensure our ongoing supply of Chocolate?

    Does not the creation of chocolate produce damaging gasses which are now set to have the greatest tax, charged upon it, of the entire planet?

    Even your dear chocolate cannot be saved from those in power and their schemes to wade through the money-filled halls of the political agendas!

    Chocolate's primary part comes from a plant. This plant is grown in large numbers to get the required amount and as such reduces Carbon Emissions.

    We can live without steel, and most other things but no Chocolate is not something to even consider.

    Because I'm so devoted to this cause I have replaced every light with the CF type, I have Solar Garden Lights to light the paths and gardens at night and even a Solar Powered Mozzi Zapper.

    I have reduced my carbon footprint to as little as possible at the moment and it's going to get smaller as the technology improves.

    I do this not because I'm concerned for the Planet but because I save more money so I can buy more Chocolate.

    That Tax thingy is coming regardless of which Politician wins power eventually so I have to do as much as possible now to ensure my supply of Chocolate before the Bastards increase the Tax on that. :0

    Though personally I could stomach a massive increase in Emitted Carbon if it was the Pollies being burnt. I would just need to plant more Chocolate Plants to make up for the Polly Carbon Emitted.

    But to be quite honest I have not eaten Cadbury Chocolate for many years, well my Mother insists on buying it for me occasionally but I'm not a great fan of it.

    Then again I feel that all Milk Chocolate is Greasy, and generally unappealing to my taste.

    It's alright if you have to cook with it but it's not something I would chose to sit down and eat if given the choice.

    Till I visited a Chocolate Factory in Switzerland.

    Big mistake on their part they offered us Tastes along the way and the silly Tour Guide told us we could eat as much as we liked. BIG MISTAKE there on their part. :^0

    Anyway they tried to ignore the person pigging out eating all of their chocolate as it passed down the production line and then completely ignored me till we finished the tour where they suggested that if we wanted they had a small chocolate shop and we could buy anything that we liked that they made.

    The others on that tour spent ages haggling over different chocolate offerings and me being the nice person that I am allowed them to waste so much time, when they had finished I just walked up and asked how many of those in a Box?

    The poor guy behind the counter was trying to hide by that stage to begin with and was attempting to explain in Broken English that each block was 500 grams or whatever and I kept saying no not each bar how many bars in a Box. It was amazing just how fast his English improved when he realized that no I wasn't asking for 2 or 3 bars of whatever but several boxes of several different kinds of Chocolate.

    They even delivered by purchases to the hotel where I was staying and every time I went to Switzerland after that or one of the staff from the company I worked for they brought back my Order. Needless to say I was a Special customer after that. :0

    Needless to say that the company ran a promotion with Swiss Chocolate and any that arrived here was immediately Locked up in the safe to protect it from me. They figured that leaving money laying around was far cheaper than allowing the chocolate anywhere near me. :^0 :^0

    Now I know that I have to destroy Max's Truck to improve the Pollution Level in the world so I can be assured to my Chocolate Fix but who elses vehicles do I have to dispose of to make sure of my ongoing Chocolate Supply.

    The Pan Dimensional Beings that we see as White Mice made sure that there was Chocolate here for them to eat while they where Monitoring Us as we the Specially Genetically Engineered Species complete the Mission that we where programed for.

    About the only thing that can be said about them all is that they have been rewritten quite a few times and on every occasion the Spelling and Punctuation have been corrected, with many Translation Errors Creeping in to confuse things even more.

    So all I can say about this is

    The Pan Dimensional Beings that we see as White Mice made sure that there was Chocolate here for them to eat while they where Monitoring Us as we the Specially Genetically Engineered Species complete the Mission that we where programed for.

    I really think that we where never supposed to get access to Chocolate as we would reduce the amount available to our Creators Clients the White Mice.

    I'm retiring to my room with a Large Block of Cooking Chocolate and Pigging out.

    What can I say they make lovely chocolate even if I'm currently placed on a Chocolate Free Diet by the Boss I don't really have to do what she says do I? :^0

    In a News Report tonight it has been stated that by 2061 we will be running out of Chocolate. There simply isn't enough being grown in large enough quantiles to maintain supply.

    We have to act now to force the Politician's to ensure our Chocolate Supplies in the future.

    And leave no Politician unturned we have to Gang Up on them to force them to make sure that enough Chocolate is grown to make sure that we Chocoholics have a ongoing supply which will not run out under any circumstance.

    We will be running out of chocolate in the next 50 years so we need to Immediately put pressure on the Politicians to force them to address this Important and Life threating Issue.

    And demand that they address this Immediately.

    We have to ensure our ongoing Chocolate Supply and if it requires that we stop paying the Pollies so much the better.

    Just the idea that they will have to work free for the Good of the country will be enough to make them take immediate steps to enlarge the amount of Chocolate grown.

    For those of us who live in countries with Parliamentary systems, your representative is a "Member of Parliament" or MP.

    When we count India, the UK, Canada, Australia and many other Commonwealth countries, there are far more of us being represented by MPs than by Representatives as in the US. Senators is another kettle of fish.

    One wonders where you get these ideas.....

    They come from our provincial little American minds...

    I read Colin's post and snickered to myself, just because I immediately knew how most Americans would read it

    Many politicians really *are* members, aren't they?

    I had fully expected one of the others to have jumped on this one long before I got to it. I am very very surprised I was the first.
