The Gore-acle Claims Two

New From Birds-Eye Foods: Flash-Frozen Activists!

There's this phrase in Latin... De mortuis nil nisi bonum dicendum est.

I'm not sure it applies in this case.
Famed global warming activist James Schneider and a journalist friend were both found frozen to death on Saturday, about 90 miles from South Pole Station, by the pilot of a ski plane practicing emergency evacuation procedures.

The phrase means, more or less, "Let nothing be said of the dead but what is good".

I mean, they're dead, so what's the point of pointing out HOW F$#!%*&^@$ STUPID MUST THEY HAVE BEEN TO TRY TO REACH THE GOT-DAM SOUTH POLE IN JULY ON SNOWMOBILES!?!?!?!

The dude's wife seems to be short on the neurons, as well...
"He kept talking about when they 'get down to chili', and I thought they were talking about the order in which they would consume their food supplies", Mrs. Schneider recounted. "I had no idea they were talking about Chile, the country from which you usually fly or sail in order to reach Antarctica".

And, the world's carbon footprint shrinks by four cold feet...

UPDATE:D'OH!!! It's a hoax. It was just too delicious an irony to be true, I suppose... Thanks to commenter Tom for the tip.
