    Default Plan B for the girlfriend - recycling waste, anti-litter campaigns and all that

    Well, she wants to do the girly thing for the environment. I have no problems with that and want to support her (it gives me the excuse to care for the environment but not be seen as a loony green). But I am looking for a bit of input here.

    I remember various anti-litter campaigns on the telly and elsewhere in the 1970s. It might be a good idea to revisit those.

    I have come across this dated gem but it's crap and I do remember better ones.

    Any ideas folks?

    With the change in attitude of people today, I think we might need another look at the ads. I'll give you an idea:


    Scene: Hoodied scrote in grey attire jaunts down a pavement by a local newsagents.

    Camera pans in slowly to the hoodie fumbling in his pockets

    Hoodie pulls out a sweet wrapper, he scrawls his face up in disdain and throws it nonchalantly to the ground.

    Cut to black van screeching to a halt alongside hoodie.

    The doors of the van burst open and two masked thugs leap out with baseball bats.

    Cut to close up of the hoodie

    The hoodie stops, wide-eyed and fearful, his mouth agape.

    Cut to balaclava'd henchmen wielding their baseball bats towards the now frozen hoodie.

    Thug #1: "Oi! You ******* littering scrote, you wanna get some, ****?"

    Thug #2: "You ******* hoodie ****,..."

    Quick cut to baseball bat bouncing off hoodies skull. Loud sound of skull splitting. [notes to Foley artist: coconut and sledge hammer]

    Pan back to reveal slaughter scene

    Thug #1: "You won't ******* litter again will you, ****?"

    Thug #2 (covered in blood): "Feed 'im to the pigs, 'arold"

    Leave scene of thugs kicking the living tulip out of now motionless hoodie, drenched in his own blood and excrement.

    Cut to black with voiceover:

    "Don't ******* litter, you dirty feckless *****"


    Anyone got Quentin Tarantino's number?
    If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.

    Getting the other half into recycling is a great idea, I just toss empty beer cans and read papers on the floor and she picks them up and disposes of them in the correct bin.

    I think she should organise a leaflet campaign, handing out flyers to people in town about recycling and anti-littering.

    Tell her to put the kettle on and that from now on you'll be doing all the thinking.
