Enviro-Irony

I went to the auto show a few weeks ago. On the top level they have all of the ancillary displays showing aftermarket parts, cool paint jobs, etc. One of the biggest displays was of fuel efficient vehicles put on by Environment Canada. They were handing out this guide to fuel efficient vehicles:



The problem I have here is that this was a pretty substantial book that I had no need for. I didn't want an fuel efficiency guide, nor do I have any intention of buying a car in the next year, but this was shoved in my hands. I recycled this when I got back to my office, but the idea of how many of these fuel efficiency guides were printed only to be immediately tossed aside after distribution seemed pretty ironic.
