  • A Hysterical Truth

    Forget Al Gore. Scratch David Suzuki, and Leonardo Di Who? Earl is the environments best hope. He has reached number twenty-six on his list of sins and sets out to atone for stealing an air-conditioner from dope-head Woody. Now living in a dung hut in an eco-friendly commune, Woody refuses to accept the appliance back and instead challenges Earl and Randy to ‘unplug from the grid’ for a week. Turns out that white trash can become green. Maybe it’s down to eating beetloaf for seven days, but Earl is so swayed by the plight of the planet that he vows to heal it. Cue to totally apt soundtrack choice of Big Yellow Taxi as Earl thinks globally. The task of compensating for ex-wife Joy’s earth-hurting ways proves overwhelming and the cute moral of this episode is to think smaller. Meanwhile a herbal remedy lapped up by Randy has him seeing everything in claymation. The difference between live-action and cartoon Joy is barely discernable. Bless her.
