Last night on Fox News, host Bill O’Reilly and former comedian Dennis Miller announced a new “business partnership.” “We’re opening a theme park: Waterboard World,” O’Reilly said. Funnyman Miller explained how the park would help in efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions:
MILLER: You know, I had a caller on my show, Bill today, the radio show, a guy named A.J. from Milwaukee. He had the best take on this. He said change the public relations of waterboarding, say that people are emitting too much CO2 and when you pour water down their nose, it cuts into their CO2 exhalation.
O’REILLY: So it’s better for the planet.
MILLER: You can call it greenboarding. And we could sell it. Greenboarding! There you go!
Miller concluded the segment by singing to the tune of the Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA,” —
“If everybody had a cheesecloth across the USA.” As actual comedian David Cross once observed of Miller, “You truly are the king of references.”
