RSS icon Comments on Assignment : Jump into Puget Sound, Stop Global Warming


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?

Posted by Beating a Dead Horse | December 11, 2007 11:00 AM

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...

Posted by Clint | December 11, 2007 11:38 AM

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?

Posted by Just Me | December 11, 2007 12:28 PM

upon watching the video, i decided to go ahead and send $100 to greenpeace. or maybe it was not so sure now. confused.

Posted by superyeadon | December 11, 2007 12:32 PM

Gilead who-see, what-so?

Hah. This was the funniest one yet. Nice work.

Posted by PdxRitchie | December 11, 2007 1:01 PM

Holy shit. I know which group of straight male activists I'm getting drunk.

Posted by Gitai | December 11, 2007 1:11 PM

Well, wait for the ones that wear the polar bear hats, they're always GGG.

Posted by Will in Seattle | December 11, 2007 1:14 PM

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...

Posted by Bruce Garrett | December 11, 2007 1:21 PM

Greenpeace boys are hawt.

Posted by johnnie | December 11, 2007 2:13 PM

@15: And even if only for publicity, this was sad. Slog is the ONLY place I've heard anything about it.

Posted by Greg | December 11, 2007 2:25 PM

lameass publicity....Greenpeace has been doing this tired shit for 200 years one gives a'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)

Posted by michael strangeways | December 11, 2007 2:45 PM

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!

Posted by Malcolm in Sydney | December 11, 2007 3:26 PM

Hairy? That alone ensures no cheesecake photo spreads of him.

Of course, it *could* be worse--he could grow a mustache....

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 11, 2007 3:51 PM

I have a huge crush on the public intern!

Posted by CodyBolt | December 11, 2007 6:11 PM

"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!

Posted by pdxmama | December 12, 2007 5:21 AM
