It is NOT a Bug

Timmothy's cartoon today is a good springboard for one of my biggest pet peeves, littering.

In my NOT so humble opinion people who litter are the most narcissistic, lazy, and stupidest people on Earth (now you know exactly how I feel about that). The only humans that are more narcissistic, lazier, and stupider than the average litterbug is the smokers who flip there butts our where ever they are (in the car, walking in the park, or in my front yard).

Remember Ladybird Johnson's clean up America campaign? I wasn't all that keen on it back then but these days I'd like to see a revival of that campaign along with heavy fines against littering. However, maybe this time they could use a real native American as opposed to the white guy imitating one.

I like it here, and would rather not relocate to another planet.  Great  post, Bob.

That reminds me of yet another Harry Nilsson song, The Most Beautiful World In The World" Michael Elliott . Some of the lyrics are:

You're a scary old place out there world

But I couldn't be happy without you

And I swear all my thoughts are about you

The most beautiful world in the world


The most beautiful world in the world

And though there are times when I doubt you

I just couldn't stay here without you

Hi Bob... I hate littering, too. One thing people who visit us in Charlotte often mention is how clean our city is. Perfect message for Earth Day.

Good Morning Bob and being Earth Day this is a good blog to remind people and people should all do their part.

It was not planned by me BUT Timmothy may have had Earth Day in mind when he wrote the cartoon a month a go. It was just luck for me Will Hamm .

Laziness or Deliberate Littering always gets me mad . And how about the folks that don’t clean up for their dogs !

Glad you mentioned it Michael J. Perry as I was going to work it into the post. I walked my dog (Baby) through the park yesterday and I could not believe the amount of poop along all the walkways. This while there are doggie stations every 100 feet and trash cans even more frequently.

A timely post for Earth Day. I often see trash in the [arks and some of it within feet of a trash pail. Like mommy is following around regardless of where you are.

I have to thank my son Timmothy for the cartoon as I forgot about Earth Day Ed Silva, 203-206-0754 . I agree that those that litter  should not be considered "adult".


Another immature act that gets me is the men who have extremely loud vehicles... they just scream "Mommy, mommy look at me!".

Hi Bob- I think it's a pet peeve of many. How hard is it to throw something away in a trash can!!!

Being located across the street from a baseball park and about 1,000 feet from the zoo and park I see a lot of litter Kathy Streib but what gets me is the number of cigarette butts I find in my yard and no one in the house smokes.

Thank you for thinking the post Gold Star worthy Endre Barath, Jr. I have earned very few features in the many years and posts I shared. That's why I enjoy comments about "The Feature Fairy". Where is He/She? Smoking in the Boys Room
