: One recent phrase I've heard often in California is to suggest that someone 'drive your SUV to the environmental demonstration". The irony in this suggestion is obvious -- wsing all the fuel these huge trucks/cars do, and then complaining and demonstrating about the global warming or the rape of the planet. Hypocrisy comes in all sizes and shapes, I guess.
Never heard the saying but I have thought of it on my own several times. I should have posted it somewhere and claimed credit when it finally emerged.
