Why Is Your Car Urinating All Over The Place?

The environmental organization Green Calgary feels really strongly about the problem of vehicles being left idle. (They're against it.) It is unlikely that you will think about the practice the same way going forward. I do not want to know what they would compare an oil leak to. [Via]

Oh man. I read that headline as "Why Is Your Cat Urinating All Over The Place" and thought FOR SURE we were going to get an update on how Cat's potty training is going. DISAPPOINTING.

Me too. And since my cat does pee all over the place, I was hoping it would be a little servicy.

Maybe Choire could write about it in his next newslet- … sorry, I couldn't even type that with a straight face.

As a Calgarian, I feel…strangely proud? I dunno.

If they've got a better way to keep power to the rooftop solar panels on my Suburban, I'd like to hear it.

And so, by extension, driving around is like peeing in the toilet?

And oil leaks = the runs?

I was waiting for a Polar Bear to fall from the sky onto someone.

Don't be ridiculous. It would never make it past our Igloo Defence Shield.

That's quite a stretch just to finish with "piss on the planet."

So, is turning your engine off like taking your car to the bathroom?

I lived in Paris for a year, and that's actually what a lot of folks really did in the streets over there.

That made the French-singing accompaniment seem strangely appropriate to me.

It all seems very ultra-Canadian.
