Comment by Kip Hansen — 23 March 2023
Now, you may think I’m trying to put one over on you. But I’m not, really. This advice comes from the Washington Post’s Climate Coach.
Say what? Climate Coach? Is that like a Life Coach? A Planet-Saving Life Coach? Well, sort of – the Post’s Climate Coach is Michael Coren. Oh, not the famous Canadian theologian, radio host and writer. A different Michael Coren, this one.
What does he do? He writes an advice column. He is the Dear Abby for the climate concerned. He (and other authors of the Green Living section) has advised readers of the Washington Post on home composting, how to buy Green Bonds, offered energy-saving tips for our home appliances, advised readers on green funeral options (from composting to natural burial to water cremation – NB: Those with weak stomachs should not follow the link on water cremation.), told us that we you should almost always wash our clothes with cold water and that we should be taking flights on planes burning re-processed French-fry oil. All in the service of saving the planet, of course.
His latest advice for the “Save the Planet®” crowd is: “eat lentils every day”.
“Lentils conceal their superpowers with a dowdy exterior. Pound for pound, raw lentils have more protein than steak. While not as protein-dense once cooked, they pack even more iron than meat, in addition to other vitamins and minerals…..Today, the lentil is again on the front lines. This time, against climate change. While start-ups scramble to engineer a sustainable protein, from lab-grown meat to fake burgers, lentils are a ready solution, one with a proven record…..When it comes to combating climate change, the lentil may be the perfect legume. They’re also, as the caviar mention implies, delicious. So why do Americans eat fewer lentils than almost everyone else?….There’s a good reason. While not as dense or digestible as meat once they are cooked, lentils become a complete protein similar to meat when combined with many grains. They’re also a slow burn, satiating hunger for hours.”
And, lentils have: “Climate impacts: What’s good for you is also good for the land. America’s most popular crops, like wheat and corn, often degrade the soil over time. Legumes like lentils rebuild it.”
One more thing — in the United states, the kids have a little ditty that goes:
♬ Beans, Beans, the musical fruit ♬
♬ The more you eat, the more you toot ♬
Lentils, being legumes, have the same ‘feature’ – which is what Coren is referring to when he says: “not as … digestible as meat”. Eating lentils causes “gas”, yes, the tooting of smelly methane gas. If all 8 billion or so of us humans begin to eat lentils at any large scale, we’ll have to be taxed, like New Zealand is taxing sheep. (For the same reason.)
So, friends, eating lentils may not actually save the planet (may cause an increase in atmospheric methane) – it may result in an infinitesimal decline in the eating of meat in the United States. It will not make the slightest difference in the overall emissions of CO2 and even if it did reduce CO2 emissions, it would not make the slightest difference …..well, in anything at all (well, maybe a bit of discomfort in crowded elevators and other confined spaces.).
But, hey, thanks for the advice, Mr. Coren.

Yet another, need I say, oddly cute column boosting absolutely silly and entirely ineffective ways people can make themselves feel better after being clubbed over the head, day after day, with climate scare stories in the Washington Post.
Full Disclosure: I eat lentils, lots of different types. I like lentils. We have five-gallon pails of lentils in our emergency food storage. My wife puts them in soups and other dishes. I just don’t think I’m saving the planet when I eat them.
Oh, just one more thing (h/t Columbo) – if your culture has a similar little ditty about eating beans, let’s hear it in comments.
Thanks for reading.
# # # # #
The recipes need to include “Beano Extra Strength”!
My preference runs more towards pinto or black beans, as far a dry legumes. Snow peas or sugar snaps as far as fresh legumes.
I agree, feeling one is performing some holy act by eating whatever is manifestly silly.
Tom ==> My wife and I have had to figuratively tie our hand behind our backs to prevent planting our sugar snap peas too early….next week it is though.
We store dry beans (several types, along with rice) as well. Ever have :bean lasagna? (layered corn tortillas, cheese, re-fried beans)
Whole rice and beans make a complete protein.
I have grown snow peas, and the major problem is that the pods and the foliage are the same color.
No, I never tried bean lasagna.
Little Smarty had a party,
No one came but Little Farty.
Soaring to new heights of scientific discourse. Good post, Kip.
Ron ==> Up there with Bill Cosby lighting farts in the tree house….
The proper way to eat lentils is with meat, yum.
Ham or bacon make them much better.
Bean soup (with northern beans or black eyed peas) with ham served with hot buttered corn bread is excellent!
Lee ==> In Praise of Beans! (flatulence be darned!)
Flatulence is someone else’s problem LOL.
Nah. Its with delicate spices as in Dahl..
With a chicken Vindaloo.
Though it varies with type, lentils for dhal also take a lot more cooking than meat.
When it comes to beef, I prefer it almost raw. I bet a lot of the anti-meat brigade don’t put things like that in their calculations.
Bob ==> Yes, lentil beef chili — a favorite at the Hansen’s.
Beans, beans are good for your heart
The more you eat, the more you fart
The more you fart, the better you’ll feel
So eat some beans with every meal
Alan ==> First Prize! (so far…)
if your culture has a similar little ditty about eating beans, let’s hear it in comments.
Just an addition yours:
♬ Beans, Beans, the musical fruit ♬
♬ The more you eat, the more you toot ♬
♬ The more you toot the better you feel ♬
♬ So let’s have beans for every meal. ♬
“Beans, beans, are good for your heart
The more you eat the more your fart
The more you fart the better you feel
So eat your beans at every meal”
Steve and mleskovarsocalrrcom ==> Terrific — all tied for First!
Nitrogen Fixing Organism.
What do they look like.What are they.How do they do this fixingWhy do they do itWhat’s in it for themDo they really make AmmoniaWhy Ammonia, first thing that ever happens is turned into NitrateHas anyone ever met or seen one of these things – would you like toThat last point is the basis of a tale I’m still working on in my head.
It’s epic. Sooooo many facets and it debunks sooooo many things that ***everybody** knows about human food and our (supposed) need for Protein in food.
It’s 2 in the morning here, I ain’t gonna start it now apart from a teaser:
Question: Do you fancy meeting a Nitrogen Fixing Organism?
Answer: You cannot avoid doing so, look in any mirror
This story is *that* big and it is simply gorgeous.
It’s beauty lies in All The Wrongs that everyone takes for granted and is sooooo like Climate Science = where OneTinyNuggetOfFact (the “Settled Science”) has been so exaggerated and misquoted/misunderstood so many times.
The BasicLittleFact became so distorted and with so many appeals to false authority that the wrongness it turned into just blows your mind and you’re left wondering how we became so intelligent as to make ourselves so dumb
Yet *anyone* can assemble the Nitrogen/Protein tale from really simple modest little observations/snippets that are all around us constantly.
Yet nobody does or has
So when I tell it, I wanna get it as right as I can. At the time.
and it won’t have links. That’s the really crazy thing.
Science, news, media, reporting etc etc have soooo concentrated on the minutia & trivial aspects (as here with the lentils) that they all simply missed TheBigPicture = the one in the mirror.
Peta (not in New Jersey) ==> All that and Britannica on nitrogen-fixing bacteria.
Peta, most farmers know about the nitrogen fixing organisms. We would rotate our crops for that reason. Alfalfa and soybeans were used for nitrogen fixing. The year after beans or alfalfa were bumper crops usually if we had enough rainfall. Both store nitrogen in nodules in their root systems.
“Peta, most farmers know about the nitrogen fixing organisms.”
My wife and I bought a 97 acre farm in Tennessee last year. I don’t even know if our nitrogen is broken…
Michael ==> Good one! Thanks….
You can joke all you want, but remember that lentils are the main source of protein for hundreds of million vegetarian Indians (the South Asian kind).
OMG, are we getting cancelled for joking about beans? Please say it isn’t so.
Not one of the joking comments disparaged Indians in any way.
Nor did any suggest that dietary changes should be forced on Indians.
However, as an American, I find it tiresome that busybodies constantly feel the need to insult my dietary choices and state that if I don’t make the changes willingly, I should probably be forced to make those changes in the future against my will.
Think how grave an insult it would be to Indian Hindus to have the “elites” at the World Economic Forum hold multiple sessions on the importance of eventually forcing them to eat beef?
(I agree it would be worse than suggesting I eat bugs, but that is because I actually respect other religions, unlike those Marxist totalitarians.)
As an ovo-lacto-pescetarian for the last 50 years I could give a sh*t (haha) about what others choose to eat. Whatever floats your boat.
If it tastes good it is good as the Duke would say.
What proportion of Indians are vegetarian? I worked with some great Indian, Sri Lankan and Pakistani colleagues over the years, and most of them ate at least some meat.
Some of these topics came up casually in general conversation, but we didn’t go into great detail, and there are quite a lot of differences between, for example, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and the Punjab.
The real question is what % of worldwide vegans are vegan by choice?
Having asked that, I have to admit that a vegan, or even a vegetarian, diet
is probably healthier than the typical American diet. I don’t think I’ve ever met
a vegan or vegetarian who was overweight.
It was just curiosity on my part. I’ve worked with people from various parts of the subcontinent, very few of whom were vegetarian. They seemed not to eat a lot of meat, but my diet has changed over the years as well.
“Overweight” has changed over the years as well. The “ideal” weight is lower now than it was 50 years ago. e.g. https://www.calculator.net/ideal-weight-calculator.html
The Hindus traditionally did not eat meat, but wealthier city dwellers increasingly do. Interestingly, the Hindu warrior cast men ate meat, but the women did not. The outcasts (untouchables) ate meat but become more traditionally Hindu if they can afford it. Milk is the major 1st class protein for Hindus.
All of the Muslims eat meat, and they are about 15% of India’s population.
These orange coloured lentils from India with some meal and Indian spices I like a lot, from time to time.
Krishna ==> Lentils are a bean, and beans are famous for cming in lots of interesting colors, included spots.
It takes a good cook (chef) to bring out the subtle difference in flavors between the various lentils.
mohatdebos ==> My family eats lots of lentils — and the legumes (including lentils) are a major source of protein for billions of humans, and when combined with less-processed rice, make a pretty complete protein.
The joke is that “When it comes to combating climate change, the lentil may be the perfect legume”
Eating legumes does not fight climate change. It is good food though.
Indonesian food tastes crappy
An advertising billboard campaign for Heinz baked beans in the ’60s in the UK had a slogan ‘Beanz Meanz Heinz’ that was often graffitied ‘Beanz Meanz
Chris ==> Hadn’t seen that one….
Dal Makhani with fresh baked Naan. Delicious. For every meal? Nope.
Walter ==> I lived in Australia (Sydney) for six months on work assignment (for which I was paid an inordinate amount of money) and became a real fan of take-out curry.
We have a long way to go – curry and chips is the English national food.
There is a large Indian population in and around Parramatta, hence some excellent Indian restaurants.
That’s a roundabout way of saying that legumes are short on tryptophan, methionine, and cystine.
It’s also a roundabout way of saying that grains have close to zero lysine, which legumes have reasonable quantities of.
Some more at https://www.verywellfit.com/vegan-protein-combinations-2506396
What isn’t given there is how much of the daily requirements of each of the essential amino acids are provided by the lentils and grains compared to various meats.
The other thing which isn’t covered is that growing more lentils means growing less of other crops. Growing legumes does fix nitrogen through symbiotic microorganisms, so it is a (slightly) positive sum game. It doesn’t account for livestock grazing being largely conducted on, well, grazing land which hasn’t been cultivated to grow crops.
old cocky ==> ah, now, let’s not get all factual and scientific and all that ….we’re having fun discussing flatulence! Then you butt in and get all adult-ish!
(Just kidding — all good points. – kh )
Flatulence is a favourite source of humour for little boys of all ages. We may grow older, bur we never grow up.
How about some more beans, Mr Taggart?
There needs to be investigation of the extent to which to proteins in grains and beans/lentils are available. 100% of amino acids in meat are, but people are significantly smaller on a diet based on grain and beans without milk or eggs. This suggests that such a diet limits somatic growth.
I just ate a bowl of delicious home made Dhal soup – chickpeas cooked for 3 hours, red split peas, turmeric, cumin seeds, ginger, carrot, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper. Did I just save the planet?
Eat more chick peas. They make a great rotation crop with wheat.
Dhal is great (haven’t had it as a soup), especially with some freshly cooked naan.
Eric ==> Yes! and Thank you sooooo much — my great-grand-children applaud you for you sacrifice on their behalf.
Yes you saved the planet. Plus you had what sounds like a kick ass meal. Two-Fer!!!
Worthless shill of beans
Smells like virtue signalling
The Washington Post
Aha! So that’s why vegans smell that way.
Yes, why don’t they all go back to Vega? It’s only 40 light-years away.
Disputin ==> Like it!
Redge ==> low blow that….
Joe ==> A sorta-Haiku?
Excuse me you eat have to eat lentils crowd. I love lentils but they don’t like me.
Mark ==> Unrequited love hurts….
It ends up being a real BM problem. Not getting out of the house well into the afternoon sucks. The crude word fo BM is a bit course for posting.
The planet only needs saving from leftists, not omnivores.
Lentils cannot save us while “We are draining humanity’s lifeblood through vampiric overconsumption and unsustainable use, and evaporating it through global heating,”
UN warns ‘vampiric overconsumption’ is draining world’s water (msn.com)
observa ==> thus sayeth U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
So many scare words in a single [false] sentence.
Here in SE Michigan we have an unusually large Arab population, especially in Dearborn Michigan. So we also have the most Lebanese restaurants outside of Lebanon. Lentils are used at those restaurants for soup, and Mujaddara, which is a vegetarian dish of lentils with fried onions on top, or a lentils and rice mix. It comes with the $40 vegetarian combo and is ALWAYS the one item that never gets finished. The fried onions on top are good. The wife has made soup from red lentils but pronounced the result to be bland.
Lentils belong in the category of supposedly healthy foods that taste awful, like kale and tofu.
Want to lose weight?
Start a lentils, kale and tofu diet.
Of all the Lebanese food we eat (used to be once a week for decades, pre-Covid) lentils do not make my Top 15 favorites.
“The more you toot”
Last night I made a large pot of chili with vegetables. I asked the wife if she wanted me to add kidney beans, and she responded with “The more you toot” rhyme (all four lines). She’s 73 years old. My response to the wife was: “Does that mea yes or no?” Just eight hours later I read the “The more you toot” at WUWT by someone who must be a similar age. Two times in eight hours. Very suspicious.
Good Lebanese chefs do this:
Aim to soak your beans or lentils for at least 4 hours, and preferably overnight. Dump the soaking water (i.e. don’t use it to cook the beans). Then be sure to give your beans/lentils a good rinse before cooking to wash away those gas-producing carbohydrates.
“Last night I made a large pot of chili with vegetables. I asked the wife if she wanted me to add kidney beans,”
Real chili does not contain beans of any kind.
Tom ==> You PURIST ! (of course, you are correct — chili and beans mislabeled “chili”. )
Richard ==> [lead in with spooky music] We are reading your mind, you cannot hide your thoughts from us….[lead out — more spooky music]
“soak your beans or lentils for at least 4 hours, and preferably overnight. Dump the soaking water” – Overnight is best. That makes it taste so much better and the broth or sauce you cook them with will be better absorbed. Canned beans need a good rinse.
Let me add one more item to the good news from adding manmade CO2 to the troposphere:
(1) Better C3 photosynthesis plant growth
(2) Milder winters in the colder nations
(3) Women wear smaller bikinis on the n beach to beat the heat
(4) Improved Growth and Nitrogen Fixation from Elevated CO2 in Two Lentil Cultivars
Viva la #3
From today’s Daily Telegraph (UK):
A farting barrister who tried to sue the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has won £135,000 after his working from home request was denied.
Tarique Mohammed said he couldn’t help his flatulence because it was caused by medication he was taking for a heart condition, an employment tribunal heard. Asking him to stop farting was not only embarrassing, it violated his dignity, the prosecutor argued.
However, a tribunal found it was a reasonable request of his colleague to make – given the size of the office that they shared and the repetitive nature of the flatulence. The farting allegation was part of a series of disability-related claims brought by Mr Mohammed against his employers after he suffered a heart attack.
He accused co-workers and bosses of discriminating against him by deliberately throwing his water bottles away when he left them on a shared desk, asking him to work one day a week 60 miles away and failing to pay for his barrister’s practising certificate while he was on sick leave.
These claims – along with the flatulence complaint – were thrown out by the tribunal. However, the barrister has now been awarded £135,862 for successful claims against the CPS. The CPS accepted it had treated him unfairly by not allowing him to work from home two days a week, leave work at 4pm to help him manage his condition and by removing him from court duties.
‘Do you have to do that Tarique?’The hearing in Reading, Berks, was told that Mr Mohammed started sharing a small office with another prosecutor, Paul McGorry, in 2016. “After two or three days of [Mr Mohammed] working in the room, Mr McGorry noticed that [he] had flatulence,” the tribunal was told. “He did not know why. “There were repeated incidents of flatulence in the quiet room. On one occasion Mr McGorry asked [Mr Mohammed], ‘Do you have to do that Tarique?’ “[Mr Mohammed] said it was due to his medication. Mr McGorry asked if he could step outside to do it. [Mr Mohammed] said that he could not. “The conversation ended there. Neither Mr McGorry or [Mr Mohammed] mentioned the matter again.”
‘Not an unreasonable question to ask’Employment Judge Emma Hawksworth said: “Many of the incidents about which [he] complains were unrelated to his disability … or were caused or aggravated by [him] over-reacting.
Of the flatulence incident, Judge Hawksworth added: “Mr McGorry’s questions to [Mr Mohammed] were not asked with the purpose of violating [his] dignity or creating such an environment. “It was not an unreasonable question to ask, when there had been repeated incidents of flatulence in a small office.”
The tribunal found the CPS was guilty of disability discrimination and failing to make reasonable adjustments for refusing his requests, ignoring recommendations from Occupational Health advisors and removing him from court duties. At the latest hearing to determine his compensation, it was heard Mr Mohammed felt “unsupported and vulnerable, angry and upset”.
Mr Mohammed urged the tribunal to make a recommendation to the CPS that they “take steps to prohibit the spread of gossip and rumour about him”, however the tribunal refused.
JohnT ==> Thank you (?) for the story of the legal travails of the over-flatulent.
‘Pound for pound, raw lentils have more protein than steak.’
Protein = amino-acids. Steak (all animal flesh) contains all the amino-acids Humans need, and no carbohydrates. Lentils do not contain protein with all the amino-acids, and they do contain carbohydrates. The more cooking (note the ‘raw’) plant matter undergoes, the more its proteins are denatured and thrown away in the water in which it is cooked.
No single plant can provide the amino-acids that meat can, which is why vegetarians need to eat a wide range and large quantity of plant material to be properly nourished. Which is why most vegetarians are not well nourished and need to take dietary supplements.
And when consumed doesn’t plant matter result in a certain alleged greenhouse gas being expelled?
John XB ==> Alas, my friend, undigested plant matter (fiber etc) often results in intestinal methane which is frequently expelled with characteristic sound.
I like to make dal in the instant pot following the Priya’s Dal recipe and making ‘Chhonk’ to spice it up. Shout out to Priya Krishna. Check out her cookbook ‘Indian(ish)’.
RMoore ==> Priya Krishna. Check out her cookbook Indian(ish)
Lentils should be part of a balanced diet along with meat protein, carbs and fats. And blueberies, plenty of blueberries!
Tom ==> And grapefruit, and strawberries in season, and tangerines, and so many tropical fruits people have never heard of. Miniature red bananas.…
Tell me again how this isn’t a cult.
John the Econ ==> The Cult of the Lentil! There is a Lentil Underground movement….
I grew up on rice and lentils for dinner every night. However, we also had milk and eggs and the ocaisional chicken. The locals did not have these luxuries and they were several inches shorter than we were.
The digestibility of meat protein is close to 100% while lentils run from about 25% to 50%. It may be a fact that lentils contain more protein per pound than meat but one must eat a lot more pounds of lentils to get the same nutrition. The same is for bugs – there is lots of protein in their exoskeletons but it is largely indigestible.
It would be interesting to compare the GHG potential per kg of a full set of essential amino acids absorbed for grass-fed lamb, beef and a mix of legumes and grains.
That includes the methane and Nitrogen compounds emitted by fertilisers used in growing the grain crops as well as the breakdown products of the rhizobia symbionts of the legumes.
Bill Gates, who takes frequent flights on private jets, is funding another venture to address the problem of methane emissions from cow burps.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a $4.8 million grant this month to London-based Zelp, a company developing a face mask for cattle designed to capture the methane produced by animal burps and turn it into carbon dioxide.
.. methane to CO2 ?? is that a solution ??
Although I doubt face masks for cattle will be economically competitive (such as compared to. adding insulation to buildings) in terms of greenhouse gas effect decrease per amount of money spent, methane has greater greenhouse gas effect than CO2. With comparing a short term methane emission to a same quantity short term CO2 emission over the following 100 years (which exceeds average atmospheric lifetime of both of these), the usual figure is that methane causes 20-21 times as much cumulative GHG heating effect as CO2 does.
For only 20 years after a short term emission, methane is usually said to cause 80 times as much heating as CO2 does, because a methane emission has a shorter atmospheric lifetime than a CO2 emission has. However, I consider the 100 year figure as more relevant to how much the planet will warm.
Don ==> Will Happer, when answering that very int at the Heartland Climate Conference in Februrary, said “It (methane) is trivial. There is no reason to regulate methane.”
The reason fr that opinion has to do with the physics of energy transmission through the atmosphere. (On which, he is a or the world’s expert.)
Notice how lentils are harvested. Then ask yourself if you are willing to oppress minorities to save the earth.
doonman ==> That kind of harvesting is only done in poor countries basically practicing subsistence farming. Lentils, like all the beans harvested dry, are harvested by combines.
I love Lentils
All food is good food and we should be at liberty to eat the food of our choice
The food religion people stink. They are constantly pitting one food type over another with wacko justifications.
If you want to get religious… think religious freedom in America. God tells Peter in Acts that all food is clean and everyone is free to eat as they wish. So any effort to ban a particular food violates my religious freedom as a Christian. Anyone who establishes a law that prohibits or limits production of any type of food violates my religious freedom. Billionaires who buy up land to limit a particular type of food production should take note of the basic rights of Americans. Trust busting is a thing.
Lentils and Dals are awesome. Lentil stew with sausage and smothered in Parmesan cheese is great. They used to be very inexpensive. I would end up hating them if I access to goat meat, lamb or beef kabobs was banned, which lentils are an excellent accompaniment.
I don’t eat lentils anymore because the PA climate is not suitable for gowning them and I produce all the beans I need…5 varieties. I save my own seed so I don’t have to buy the seed and the chickens provide all the fertilizer. So beans are a cheap crop for home production.
BTW Ethiopian Cuisine with lentils and dals is awesome. Dals and culinary pumpkins is also awesome. Add all the great Turkish eggplant dishes and lamb…… can’t beat it.
I have no problem with people choosing veganism and vegetarianism because they like the cuisine but often it becomes a religious affectation …and the actual cuisine of most vegan and vegetarians stinks.
JC ==> Luckily, we haven’t descended to the point where we have to put up with real Food Police….give it time.
Agreed, we are still only dealing with the theater of the absurd when it comes to food and climate. On the other hand, the battle ground over energy is very serious. At this point, the battleground of climate, food and land usage is as much about a dystopic narrative as it is about an actual climate initiative It’s a much deeper and longer dystopic propaganda program. Why all this yap about food (eating bugs, plant meat, how lentils are a great alternative,( to what lentils?)…and so on. There has to be an agenda to create crisis when none exists or needs to exist.
. I don’t think anyone other than a few billionaires are taking the meat/climate issue seriously…. I mean the billionaires that are buying up huge tracts of grazing land to allow to go wild. I am sure money is the ultimate goal, not climate but climate demonstrates the seriousness of their environmentalist zeal.. The former is about hedging wealth, the later is existential and political.(Billionaires solve for pattern and take actions that benefit them on multiple dimensions). I think one dimension is to demonstrate power and thereby, at least implicitly, instill anxiety in anyone who understands the long term consequences of our food producing land being controlled by people who do not have anyone’s best interests in mind.
JC ==> I give it a decade(maybe less) before the whole underlying rottenness is exposed in a bombshell book written by one of the conspirators themselves after a Road to Mananas moment.
“The cure to the Climate is lentils.
(But be sure to mix them with fennel!)
The more lentils you eat
The less you’ll eat meat!”
But I think that reasoning’s mental!
Gunga ==> A Fine Effort!
Beans! Beans! They make you dance
To escape your own flatulance!
Beans! Beans! You’d better run
To escape the climate-harm you’ve done
For sphincters in quite vegan asses
Produce stench whose harm surpasses
Several other greenhouse gasses.
Caleb ==> Taking a chance, I declare that the Best Original Fart Ditty of the day!
Thank you. I couldn’t resist the challenge.
I do wish these climate zealots would stop using foods I like as examples of “correct choices”. It just creates a bunch more demand and then I have to pay more LOL.
TR M ==> True of all foods that become fads. Take kale, for instance, please….
