Half-human? Try reading the books, jackasses.

Nothing like dressing up like a tree and acting like a complete lunatic in order to try to change people's minds.

I wonder if any lawyers reprentation the estate of JRR Tolkien stepped in to put a halt to that unauthorized imitiation.

That should be representing. stupid brain thinks words that I am supposed to write but doesn't write them. It's curtains for you, brain.

"France Surrenders" is getting really old like MC Hammer
 
2003-05-03 11:15:43 AM  
Groovy. This takes the term "tree-hugging" to a whole new level.
 
2003-05-03 11:17:17 AM  


SAVE THE TREES, Y0!

It's Tolkien rolling over in his grave

Did anyone else read that as "Ants"? I was disappointed when it turned out to just be some PETA-syle enviroturds. Visions of giant radiation mutated ants are often on my mind.

France never surrenders!
Don't believe the hype.

In other news, I still have green crap on my hands. Still drunk fron my 21st bday and loving it. Better than a hangover I suppose.
*goes back to watching dazed and confused*

Oh c'mon you people! This is actually pretty good as far as hippie-stunts go. PeTA, you listening? You don't have to be a bunch of asshats to get publicity.
 
2003-05-03 11:36:19 AM  
What a waste of flesh.

Instead of wasting time parading around in fancy outfits, why don't they plant some stupid trees.

Goodness knows I am running out things to cut down.

If by ents you mean...um, what's a 4-letter word that means the same as snatch? grab. ohh yeahh.

"Environmentalists intend to fight the B.C. Liberal government's plan to turn much of the province's remaining forest land into possible logging sites, she said."
 
2003-05-03 11:57:28 AM  
G*ddamned tree spirits; they're everywhere nowadays. *kicks the Lorax*
 
2003-05-03 12:12:14 PM  
The ents going marching one by one, hurrah.. hurrah...
 
2003-05-03 12:13:33 PM  
Perhaps Gordon Campbell will get wasted and run them over in his SUV.
 
2003-05-03 12:14:06 PM  
Lord of the Rings geeks are lower on the geek scale than Star Wars geeks.

Green Peace: The only group more annoying than PeTA.
 
2003-05-03 12:14:59 PM  
This "Liberal" government is in name only. They way they fall over each other to kiss the nice, juicy butts of the logging concerns proves otherwise.

These whores get nice, fat campaign contributions from the logging companies, and are returning the favor.

Until campaign contributions from these multi-billion-dollar organizations are mase illegal, the environment will continue to go down the toilet and democracy will be a sham.

Good Headline writing surrenders.

Worst use on the "France Surrenders" cliche ever. At least reserve it for military or European politics headlines.
 
2003-05-03 12:15:14 PM  
This bodes really badly for the anti-Orc bill they're considering next week.
 
2003-05-03 12:21:35 PM  
SpaceCoyote, LOL. Maybe Pippen introduced him to the "full pint".
 
2003-05-03 12:31:37 PM  
Ents are great, but nothing beats the majesty of Leonard Nimoy Singing About Hobbits.

Yes. It's clear that Canada has damn few trees left.

/sarcasm
 
2003-05-03 12:45:39 PM  
I think i'd surrender if I had ents chasing me down... Am I alone here?
 
2003-05-03 12:49:30 PM  
Let me get this straight. They dressed up like magical tree beings to march on the BC Legislature.

And they want to be taken seriously? Give me a break.

HomestarJunior:

It's never a bad time to point out the obvious.
 
2003-05-03 12:55:40 PM  
Ents are half human?!? Stupid people! I had sympathy for them till then.
 
2003-05-03 12:59:57 PM  
Naked_man...

Spoken like a true Trekkie...

Asshat
 
2003-05-03 01:01:59 PM  
The ents go marching... and the beer is flowing. Lets here it for getting drunk before 1.
 
2003-05-03 01:02:13 PM  
Police will control them thanks to the termites. they will be termi-tated.
 
2003-05-03 01:02:22 PM  
and furthermore...

if the ents go marching, it's the Orcs who should surrender.

France can only surrender so much you know...
 
2003-05-03 01:03:29 PM  
Heh, this is a prophecy I tell you:

"Macbeth shall reign until Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane"

It's a sign! It's a sign of a violent revolution! *runs around flailing arms wildly*
 
2003-05-03 01:08:20 PM  
Star Wars? You mean Wizard of Oz in space? The whole Star Wars thing fades to black in memory when you compair it to LOTR. LOTR has much better acting, direction... not to mention that it is simply the best work of fiction EVER.



And ladies and gentlemen... there is no Jar Jar in LOTR.

Thank you.

Not to go off topic here, but did anyone else check out the link on the main page:

Bring on the tree hippies...

 
2003-05-03 01:18:04 PM  
Be lion-mettled, proud; and take no care
Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are:
Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be, until
Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill
Shall come against him.


Run!!!

Give me some sap baby!

 
2003-05-03 01:23:28 PM  
They should a "save the wheat" march and dress up like loaves of bread.
 
2003-05-03 01:26:11 PM  
Life isn't too bad when it starts to resemble an old Monty Python skit.
/the larch, THE LARCH....
 
2003-05-03 01:28:39 PM  
I never wanted to be a barber anyways! I wanted to be... a lumberjack! Leaping from tree to tree as they rolled down the mighty river. The larch! The redwood! The mighty pine! With my best girly at my side, I'd sing... sing... sing..
 
2003-05-03 01:40:16 PM  
I just love how greenpeace can get the most basic facts wrong, they obviously never bothered to read the books :

"In Lord of the Rings there were forests, (half-tree), half-human, who decided to fight back against the lord who controlled the land," said Tamara Stark, Greenpeace spokeswoman

Sigh.And to think at one time i gave them money.

They should cut back on logging however.
