Professor Quippy: Miserable harridans & feculent wankers should stay together to save planet

Professor QuippyHow much do you love the environment? Enough to continue putting up with his foot odor or her icky long hairs in the drain?

According to a Michigan State University study, divorce is bad for the planet:

“Divorced households are smaller than married households, but consume more land, water, and energy per person than married households,” says Jianguo Liu of Michigan State University in East Lansing, US, who carried out the 12-country analysis with colleague Eunice Yu.

So, stay together! Even though you are driving one another slowly insane in a hellish, churning miasma of recrimination, loathing and regret, stay together! Unless, of course, you have the next mister or missus lined up, because if you’re back in a couple, there is no extra environmental impact. But your spouse has to be paired up too — have you seen to that?

  1. Yeah that sounds about right. Rickey’s sad lonely bachelor days were marked by greater power consumption (in the form of tv usage) and more rubbish being generated (in the form of empty pizza boxes and goats roaming the apartment).

  2. That’s thinking a lot more globally than staying together for the kids. Kudos to you for your envirofamilyplanning, sir, kudos!

  3. But wouldn’t the goats eat the empty pizza boxes? A perfect closed system! Helping the environment always helps the kids! m.
