These days, whenever I write a post about some kooky melodramatic over-the-top environmentalist goofball, I’m including it in the category “religion” — because that’s what it’s become.
Harrison Ford, one of my favorite actors, has really become proof that enough fame and fortune for long enough can eventually turn a formerly normal human being into an over-symbolic cracked walnut:
Harrison invited Access Hollywood and our guest correspondent Mel B exclusively along as he embarked on a personal project to promote going green.
And just how did Harrison, who is the vice chair of the global environment group Conservation International, want to get his message across?
By waxing his chest, of course.
In an effort to showcase the pain involved in deforestation, Harrison willingly subject himself to the painful process of stripping his chest of all its follicles.
If this accomplishes nothing else, it certainly gives new meaning to my morning shave — which of course now symbolizes the pain my lawn goes through every time I mow it. I’m also going to dedicate my next colonoscopy to bringing attention to the pain the earth will feel when they drill in ANWR.
For the sake of his career, I hope Ford doesn’t next decide to showcase the pain the earth feels because of arson.
What would we do without actors?
