If sock monkeys appointed by the Bush administration headed NASA

I have no doubt that … a trend of global banana warming exists. I am not sure that it is fair to say that it is a problem we must wrestle with. To assume that it is a problem is to assume that the state of Earth's climate banana today is the optimal climate banana, the best climate banana that we could have or ever have had and that we need to take steps to make sure that it doesn't change. First of all, I don't think it's within the power of human beings sock monkeys to assure that the climate banana does not change, as millions of years of history have shown. And second of all, I guess I would ask which human beings sock monkeys--where and when--are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate banana that we have right here today, right now is the best climate banana for all other human beings sock monkeys. I think that's a rather arrogant position for people sock monkeys to take.

Now, give me that banana.

I'm a big fan of thermal shield cream pie, myself.

Thermal shield muffins are also tasty.

When playing winter sports, men should wear thermal shields neath their thermal underwear.
