February 22 & 23: COORDINATES: Part 3 of a series
Kinder: A monster
Morgan: Another monster
COORDINATES: Part 3 of a series, (a bi-polar production)
Kinder and Morgan are walking along the seawall near Olympic Village.
Kinder: How much fish do you eat?
Morgan: I don’t eat fish. I gave it up after all the Kalamazoo incident.
Pointing to each other – snapping fingers and singing:
Kinder & Morgan: A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I’ve got a gal in Kalamazoo
Don’t wanta boast but I know she’s the toast of Kalamazoo
Morgan: I love that song… anyway… Enbridge really screwed that one up. I don’t trust fish anymore. God knows what they’re eating.
Kinder: It’s just that one of our lawyers asked that question at one of those damned National Energy Board hearings and everyone freaked out.
Morgan: Maybe they’re vegans… they can get touchy about that sort of thing.
Kinder: yeah well – we’ve got to keep the NEB on our side. We better be careful about upsetting the vegans.
Morgan: Do you remember grilled chicken with mango salsa? Whatever happened to that? You can’t get mango salsa anywhere anymore.
Kinder: I don’t eat chicken unless I know it’s had a good and happy life.
Morgan: How happy can a chicken be?
Kinder: I’m not sure. It’s kind of hard to tell by their facial expression.
Morgan: Just so you know – you eat the average chicken at two to four months of age. Since the average “happy” chicken lives 10 years – that means you’re eating the chicken when it’s still a child.
Kinder: (silence for about 4 seconds). Don’t compare chicken to children. I don’t eat children.
Morgan: Just sayin…
Kinder: Back to the topic of fish – have you heard about this hydro-electric dam situation?
Morgan: Yeah – where are the protests about that? Nobody cares about water because it’s water. Water has a goody good reputation. Even though trees and animals will drown nobody is going there to set up camps…
Kinder: … I think there was a big thing in Victoria recently.
Morgan: (ignoring Kinder) …we always get picked on. All people think about is that oil is toxic – oil is bad. We may be destroying a few habitats but we’re not drowning animals and trees. It’s ..it’s… barbaric!
Kinder: Can chickens swim?
Morgan: For god’s sake what does that have to do with anything?
Kinder: I just don’t want any of them to drown… particularly given the recent information you told me about them being murdered in their youth.
Morgan: Maybe we can start a new protest that gives water a bad rap. We could have our PR people showing drowning trees and animals. It could take some of the heat off us.
Kinder: OK… as long as no chickens are harmed in the production of the video.
