Heh, indeed™:

Tired of celebrities telling us how much toilet paper to use or how often to turn off the lights in our 1 bedroom apartments? Yeah, so are we.

Hollywood is packed with triple-home owning, SUV driving, jet-setting college and high school dropouts who think they’re smarter than us. So we came up with an idea – why not ask every A-list celebrity to take a paycut and put the money into research for alternative fuel and energy sources? Instead of paying Julia Roberts $20 million per film, why not take half that and put it into something useful?

I wrote an even more modest proposal for Hollywood’s more eco-centric celebrities (or at least their “mini-me” public personae, as Roger L. Simon dubbed them) a couple of years ago.
