Overheard in the Heart of Recycling Land

Even here in the heart of Recycling Country, it can be hard to save the world without sounding priggish. I overheard the following conversation at a recent holiday get-together:

Guest: Where can I find the paper towels?
Host: Oh, we're not that kind of family. Here, use this wet cloth.
Guest: So it's ok to put my son's booger in it?
Guest: Oh, here, have a tissue.

Far away in the arctic, another polar bear cracks through the melting ice and drowns.
