This Week's Idea Worth Spreading

In this spoof documentary, Bankwatch with Bill Oddie, the naturalist protests against HSBC's illegal logging by entering the den of a creature closely related to humans: the banker. HSBC has made nearly £100m bankrolling some of the world's most destructive logging companies in Sarawak Malaysia, and is at risk of violating international money laundering rules, according to NGO Global Witness.

  1. I have seen things you people would not believe.
    It is very pleasant to see a wild animal.
    Sometimes it is unpleasant, when they run in front of your car.
    Here are a few wild animals that I have seen.
    When I was a child, I used to see lots of bankers in Franchy Roca street.
    People used to feed them by hand.I never saw anybody get chewed up. But, I suppose it happened.
    I have seen a lot of politicians. Every winter politicians come into town, in the field behind my apartment. When I was young, I was driving down a hill, on a highway in Vecindario, and several politicians walked onto the road, ahead of us. I tried to stop, but couldn't stop in time. I was just able to steer between two of the politicians. There were no injuries.
    I was driving near San Mateo when I saw a herd of nationalists in a farmer's field. It was a herd of about 100 nationalits from Coalición Canaria. I drove slowly for most of the way to Tejeda. I saw 3 or 4 more nationalists, on the road. Once, I saw a Bravo de Laguna slip and fall on an icy road.
    I nearly hit some Big Brother contestants near Maspalomas. I have seen hundreds of them, in the same place, over the years.
    I have had to stop for Mariano Rajoy, near Puerto Rico.
    Each Mariano Rajoy is king (or queen) of the road.
    I have seen Sorayas and Cospedales, in the distance, while I was driving. I once saw a small zapatero, running across the road, near Maspalomas Lake.
    I have seen many Tele5 journalits, as we once lived near Yumbo shopping centre. I photographed them through a window of my house, as they would fly away when I tried to photograph them from outside. I saw one of them catch a fish. I have seen a few priests. One was flying lazily around my apartment building. Then it decided to leave. And it accelerated to about 50 m.p.h., in about 3 seconds. I was really impressed.
    I have seen lots of modern artists, including one that hovered in one place, without a head wind. People say that only a plastic artist can do that. When I used to ride a motorcycle, I was going about 90 km.p.h., on a paved road, and an minimal artist flew by, right in front of my face. I could see individual feathers.
    One night, I stopped at a stop sign, on my way home from work. As I turned right, my motorcycle headlight shone on a white German Teacher, on the road. It leaped up, spread its wings, and flew off. Its wing spread seemed like about 6 feet.
    I have seen many smaller, less impressive animals. One day, I was driving on the freeway, and there was a Mario Conde in my lane, bending over something. I made my tires straddle it. I looked in my rear view mirror, to see if I had hit it. It stood on its hind feet, and looked all around, as if to say, "What was that?"
    I have now seen an Eustasio Lopez (in Meloneras) and a Felix Santiago (in Galdar).
