A penguin and a polar bear are sitting on an iceberg. The penguin yells, "No Soap Radio!" They both jump in the water.

Feed me Seymour

Washington, D.C. - An Iowa farm boy today will receive the Congressional Gold Medal in honor of his lifetime work saving millions of people around the world from starvation.

Norman Borlaug, a pioneer of the "Green Revolution" who was born on a Cresco farm in 1914, will become one of only five people in history to receive the Congressional Gold Medal, Nobel Peace Prize and Presidential Medal of Freedom.

A small prize for the greatest man to live. Ever. Better than Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Theresa and even Bob Hope. Way better than Carson Daly.

His work is a great example of why I've always split from other self-proclaimed environmentalists on the issue of genetic modification. I don't see why it's a sin against Nature to engineer grain that grows in agriculturally inhospitable climates, or has five times the normal amount of protein, or whatever. People who are all anti-GMO ought not wear the often-petroleum-based leather-alternative shoes on their feet or drive their steel-encased hybrid cars if they're so against anything "unnatural." Also, they should try starving for a week and see if they care what genes their food has after that.

There. I have publicly committed treason against my fellow tree-huggers. I'm sure the Green Police will be here shortly to take away my patchouli.
