Apparently, Prince Charles recent pronouncement has created a riff in space-time, and an irony meteorite was ejected, striking the prince in the head. A photo follows.
From Raw Story: Prince Charles criticizes ‘corporate lobbyists’ and climate change skeptics for turning Earth into a ‘dying patient’
“If you think about the impact of climate change, [it should be how] a doctor would deal with the problem,” he told an audience of government ministers, from the UK and abroad, as well as businesspeople and scientists. “A scientific hypothesis is tested to absolute destruction, but medicine can’t wait. If a doctor sees a child with a fever, he can’t wait for [endless] tests. He has to act on what is there.”
He added: “The risk of delay is so enormous that we can’t wait until we are absolutely sure the patient is dying.”
Apparently, second opinions aren’t allowed by Royal medicine. The Daily Mash has the story of the irony meteorite.
The beneficiary of the queen’s death was criticising climate change scepticism when he was struck on the forehead by a large, possibly homeopathic, chunk of irony.
Health and safety consultant Nikki Hollis said: “Science is pretty sturdy and can generally cope with a person warning about CO2 emissions whilst being chauffeured around in a big fuck-off Bentley.
“But if you start using a doctor analogy like Charles did, when you’re convinced a £20 bottle of ghosts is the best treatment for serious illness, something’s bound to give.”
