Carbon foot binding

Most of the time when you trick yourself into thinking that you have come up with something unique, you type it into google and realize that it has been written 65, 000 times, and that often, the phrase is poorly spelled and many of the vowels are replaced by numbers.

But every once in a while, you type something into google and not a single match comes up. Such is the case with the phrase, "carbon foot binding." This means that I am the first person ever to write this dumb joke:

Q: What is the Chinese government doing to reduce their carbon footprint?
A: Carbon foot binding

The fact that the phrase, "carbon foot binding" does not come up in google blows my mind. It's such an obvious dumb punchline, and additionally, the joke can be used to proliferate stereotypes about the Chinese.

Foot binding is a barbaric practice, and I, for one, think it's finally time to laugh about it.

Also, this picture of the two brothers gored by the same bull in Pamplona is funny:

The bull goring is one way to reduce the carbon footprint of anyone stupid enough to run with the bulls.

Also, just wanted to let you know that sometimes you are the only one that "gets" me!
I don't know if that is a good or bad thing - for you or for me!! ;)

Anyhow, have a great weekend!

I always wanted to bind my feet.

What stopped me was the fact that when you unbind 20 years later, your feet smell.

ANd that's just gross.
