Puget Sound isn't warm enough to jump into, in AUGUST let alone December...What a clever young cookie, the Public Intern is...AND, to jump into a photo op with the hunkiest idiot, er, do-gooder.
I see some serious Dan-bait in that photo.
I know those people. They like to jack canvass locations from WashPIRG.
When I was younger, I used to think that Greenpeace was cool, and was fighting for stuff that mattered. Then I grew up and stopped being so fucking stupid.
There should really be more pictures of stoopid hot thumbs-up guy. Tho I'm imagining there is some major ice-water shrinkage going on there....
Makes me wonder - what would happen if Dan Savage had 2 equally-qualified candidates for public intern, except one of them was fat?
an even more interesting scenario: what if two equally qualified gay, male interns applied and one was a very fat smoker and the other one was very hairy, including excessive facial hair?
@6 & 7 ... the public intern isn't even dead yet, and you want to replace him with a fat kid.
The piece of cloth that you bought from the guy with the table on the corner, although labeled as such, does not constitute a "cashmere scarf"
@1, 4 & 5: You know, calling young, motivated people "stupid" for caring about the environment and doing something about it is really pathetic, even for bitter ol' Slog commenters.
@10: but what are they *doing*? As the intern asks, how does this help any?
Kind of a letdown after the last Public Intern episode...
for anyone who just can't get enough visuals of the event, we posted video on Saturday:
@11: Publicity, the linchpin of getting anything done today.
Surprisingly, it's about 10 degrees warmer up in Vancouver BC in the water.
Look, you're basically jumping into the Pacific Ocean around here - that's why it's so cold.
I'm sure Cheney is proud of our Public Intern for sabotaging a Global Warming Protest event ... you'll probably get a Freedom Medal for this!
Why didn't Greenpeace have the Public Intern put some steel rods in some trees?
upon watching the video, i decided to go ahead and send $100 to greenpeace. or maybe it was alkibeachparty.com. not so sure now. confused.
Gilead who-see, what-so?
Hah. This was the funniest one yet. Nice work.
Holy shit. I know which group of straight male activists I'm getting drunk.
Well, wait for the ones that wear the polar bear hats, they're always GGG.
Well, if the ice-caps melt, we now know who to blame.
Naughty, naughty Public Intern!
There should really be more pictures of stoopid hot thumbs-up guy.
The guy with the button hat and blue bandanna around his neck...
Greenpeace boys are hawt.
@15: And even if only for publicity, this was sad. Slog is the ONLY place I've heard anything about it.
lameass publicity....Greenpeace has been doing this tired shit for 200 years now...no one gives a shit...it's not noble, it's stupid.
The heart is in the right place, but the brain isn't...(and I mean Greenpeace, not these lovely, lovely men and women who bared their bodies and hearts for a silly publicity stunt that accomplished nothing but a silly posting on Slog)
ME: Hey, do you think activists are hot?
MY FRIEND: When their activism is effective.
"Nuff said. I think I've seen the Speedo guy on Manhunt.
Public Intern is hairy?
Yet another reason to find him a paying job at the Stranger so he can keep posting.
Public Intern for Assistant Editor!
Hairy? That alone ensures no cheesecake photo spreads of him.
Of course, it *could* be worse--he could grow a mustache....
I have a huge crush on the public intern!
"I felt a bit left out, and wondered if I had missed an opportunity to make new (weird) friends."
I always laugh out loud reading The Public Intern. Dan, give him a job when he gets back!
i wonder if public intern scored some dates or hook-ups from either of those two boys :) they're pretty cute :) i wouldn't kick any of them out of bed
btw, i see some serious shrinkage from the two of them
