My love for Google only grows by the day. Not only is my pagerank skyrocketing, but A Yobbo’s View is now the #1 Google Result for “greenpeace sucks“. Who wouldn’t be happy?

In my gloating I also happened across this heartening tale:

Johannesburg – African and Asian farmers, and hawkers from across South Africa handed over a “Bullshit Trophy” (yes, that is the trophy’s real name) to Greenpeace, the Third World Network and BioWatch for their contribution to the “preservation of poverty” in developing countries.

The trophy comprises of a piece of wood on which two heaps of dried cow-dung – “unfortunately not elephant dung” – are mounted.

Mitra denounced the three NGOs as parasites which “prey on the blood of the poor” and did not help to improve agricultural productivity in the Third World.

“They are not interested in famine or poverty. This lot is concerned only about their own interests.

“They sit here at the World Summit for Sustainable Development in their rich man’s hotels and romanticise everything,” he said.

You’ve gotta hand it to Greenpeace, though. It can’t be easy to spend $800 million a year making people poorer. It takes real talent.
