WUWT readers may recall that back on October 7th, 2011, there was this story: Friday Funny – The newest member of the Union of Concerned Scientists where my dog Kenji, became an esteemed member of the Union of
credit card carrying Concerned Scientists.
The photo then showed him with his welcome kit from that prestigious organization:
Only one problem then, one of the items that Kenji paid extra for was not included, and he’s been wondering ever since what has happened to that splendid Union of Concerned Scientists mousepad he paid an extra 10 bucks for. Months have gone by since October 7th, 2011. He was about to go barking mad waiting for it!
Today, just over 5 months later, it arrived, note the postmark.
Wow those UCS guys are fast in fulfillment.
It came with a high quality letter from the president:
And of course the fabulous mousepad itself:
It was a little “ruff” around the edges I noted, and smelled to high heaven. Why? because it is made of recycled tire rubber and it smells like a Goodyear Tire Store.
Eh. I figured Kenji would use it as a chew toy. No such luck, he hates the smell.
Maybe the David Suzuki Foundation will smell better. I wonder what it takes to be a member there?
