Lyrics

intro:
Feather hair extensions? Check.
Om tatoo? Check.
Boutique Microbrew? Check.
Lululemon leggings? Check.
Camouflage hoodie? Check.
Prius Limosine? (don't you want to ride) Check...

Verse 1:
When I rolled up, this guy in a Clippers Cap
Was flippin' flack. Who you yellin at? You can't handle the heat in the parking lot of Whole Foods? What are you, some old dudes? Yo fools! Just like the GZA is a master of the Pro Tools, I'm ballin while you're followin the old rules. Quit stallin, y'all are growin toad stools. You drink kombucha? Why you sippin O'Douls?
Please. Let me get my space. I'm not in the mood cuz I got the taste for an iced soy latte mate, in my body...
I don't know karate, but I gotta get some kale to saute, so, please move your misguided hybrid out the way. I get vociferous when shopping for cruciferous veggies...!! Lemme hear you hollah. Pop the top on your favorite Odwalla (you can get one if you've got five dollahs)!!

Chorus:
You can't handle the heat in the parking lot?
Did you run outta your prescription for medical pot?
Instead of sittin on the little shopping carts they got,
You could just park next to the Passat.
You can't handle the heat in the parking lot?
Listen man, there's a Vons right down the block.
Don't you know you got a choice where you can shop,
besides you said your kombucha is out of stock...

Verse 2:
That's right I got a date tonight, and I'm cookin. My date is tall and really good lookin. Ok, it's not a date, it's just my FBF (huh?) My fake boyfriend (what?) What, are you deaf?!
She's comin over and she's bringing her chihuahua, and if you don't move it I'm a slap you like Zsa Zsa slapped a cop, stop blockin or it's gonna get hotter...Don't make me spray you with my coconut water!!
Tom's on my feet, I'm hoping I'll meet
a hottie with allergies to dairy and wheat, so I'll
spend some time in the gluten-free aisle,
Flash him a Tom's of Maine smile,
Let him know, I do downward dog like a pro! "you want a goji berry?" - "No thanks, I gotta go..."
I don't mean to Bragg like liquid aminos, but I was just too sexy for his chinos.

[Chorus...]

Verse 3:
What? I shouldn't shop at Whole Foods cuz I'm broke? You think that I should eat an inorganic artichoke? Yo bloke, I'm no joke, I need my acai...Watch us do some tai chi...
I've got a lot of problems, not a problem with a lot,
Keep stressin me dude, and get a shot!!
Of wheat grass, or filet'd Chilean sea bass,
I keep it raw like my agave nectar sweet ass.
Oh, you're gangster cuz your tshirts made of hemp, ay?
I'm wearin a tampon made of tempeh!!
But now I gotta get to TJs. Sipping fifteen dollar pinot noir in my PJ? You think I give a f--k? I keep it real with the two-buck-chuck! what what.
(Charles Shaw up in the house.
Sauvingon blanc forevahhh)

[Chorus...fade out]

John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, just keeps digging himself into a deeper hole. As you can see in The Ed Show segment above, he recently accused President Obama of being a "socialist" or a "fascist," or an evil French gay Kenyan Marxist commie (I made up that last part).

Now he's proving himself to be even more ignorant than we thought, if that's even possible. He actually told Mother Jones that "climate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad." Seriously.

I guess he didn't read this: Yet another report confirms man-made climate change, and it’s not pretty:

[T]he cost of unchecked global warming could pass the combined cost of both world wars and the Depression. To understand how such a thing might happen, consider the costs of this year’s drought and Superstorm Sandy: $100 billion price tags start to add up (and of course the biggest price was born by poor consumers around the world, many of whom saw the price of their daily bread rise painfully out of reach).

Or this, via Think Progress:

The National Climate Assessment lays out how “Climate change is already affecting the American people.” It states, “Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense including heat waves, heavy downpours and in some regions floods and drought. Sea level is rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and glaciers and Arctic sea ice are melting.” ... One report estimates as many as 100 million people could die from climate change consequences by 2030.

Via The Guardian, presenting the Dim Bulb o' the Day:

Mother Jones: You are known to be a bit of a climate-change skeptic. In your book you write that "some scientists estimate that the United States now absorbs as much carbon emissions as it emits." Your source is a paper by the American Enterprise Institute, which has received funding from the Koch brothers and ExxonMobil. Do you really consider AEI a credible source?

John Mackey: Contrary to what has been written about me I am not a "climate-change skeptic."... [C]limate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad. In general, most of humanity tends to flourish more when global temperatures are in a warming trend and I believe we will be able to successfully adapt to gradually rising temperatures. What I am opposed to is trying to stop virtually all economic progress because of the fear of climate change. I would hate to see billions of people condemned to remain in poverty because of climate-change fears.

Yeah, death and destruction are much more preferable.
