    Won't you help us save the world by joining in the plastic straw ban?

    How severe should the penalty be for using the plastic satan sticks?

    Whodey, why do you think it's OK to dump our garbage wherever we want to?? Plastic straws have been found in the digestive tracts of many species of marine life. Countless fish have died because of these. Does sound like a good thing? What's wrong with you?!

    Have you had your head up your arse for the last year, surely you must need a biocompatible straw in order to breath up there?

    You really are a blithering right-wing religious misanthrope who doesn’t give a shlt about anything because it’s all going to end soon and Jesus will save you.

    I'm afraid there is more truth in this than some here are comfortable with. 😲

    I think the answer will turn out to be making straws that biodegrade quickly. End of problem.
    For instance, make them out of paper or some other fiber that biodegrades.

    Yes, but will Jesus save us from the plastic straw?

    Now, now, I thought we were all in agreement. The plastic satan sticks must be illegal.

    So what should the punishment be?

    That's so weird - I was out for drinks on Friday and there was a message written on a chalkboard in the bar. It said: ""It's just one straw...." - said 8 billion people once every day".

    I remarked that it made the point quite effectively.

    That should be "said 7,999,999,999 people once every day".

    I never drink through straws.

    Since this is such a serious issue that we need to enact laws and throw multiple straw-use offenders in prison... I assume we are demanding Asia and Africa comply? Or do they get a free pass.
