Texas Republican Rep. Louis Gohmert supports the recently debated trans-Alaska pipeline but not for the sake of energy independence, but rather to help caribou have more sex.
During a meeting of the House Natural Resources committee Gohmert said that the warmth created as oil makes its way through the pipeline gets caribou ready for some hot and heavy behavior in the region.
According to Gohmert:
“So when they want to go on a date, they invite each other to head over to the pipeline. So my real concern now … if oil stops running through the pipeline … do we need a study to see how adversely the caribou would be affected if that warm oil ever quit flowing?”
The Washington Post calls the representatives call for action a “faux concern” and it apparently led fellow GOP Rep. Don Young of Alaska stifling his own laughter while stating:
“I’m not sure it’s warmth of the pipeline.”
So there you have it, politics in America have come down to discussing the finer points of caribou sex as we deal with more pressing issues such as high unemployment and terrorism.
Do you think the “warmth of oil pipelines” would really lead caribou sex in a whole new direction throughout Texas?
