U.K. Guardian Reporter Aboard Icebound Antarctic Ship Goes Stir Crazy

The helicopter rescue crew is coming to take me away, ha-haaa!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa!
To the funny farm. Where I can find banana peanut butter milkshakes sprinkled with delicious carbon credits.
We thought it was a joke and so we laughed, we laughed when I had said that proving global warming had trapped us in ice and that I'm going MAD!!!

And U.K. Guardian reporter Laurence Topham has proclaimed himself going mad (along with his craving for banana peanut butter milkshakes) in this rather morose video diary in which he discovers that that the adventure to the Antarctic to report on "climate change" has brutally backfired to the extent of causing him to go stir crazy. Watch the video below and note the strange similarity with the mood of the Jack Nicholson character in "The Shining."

The bad news for Topham is the report that the planned helicopter rescue of the global warming (or "climate change" as they now call themselves) scientists aboard the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy has been delayed yet again because of hazardous weather conditions.

The big question is who has gone more stir crazy? The banana peanut butter milkshake craving Topham or the expedition leader, climate change professor Chris Turney who continues to insist they are trapped in ice because it is melting:

...But Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, said it was “silly” to suggest he and 73 others aboard the MV Akademic Shokalskiy were trapped in ice they’d sought to prove had melted. He remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.

Perhaps they both need a double dose of banana peanut butter milkshakes upon their return to get their minds right. In the meantime, they should try this typing assignment to pass away the empty time that has been forced upon them by the ice that is supposedly melting:
