• Eco-terrorists are believed to be the culprits behind the ruthless destruction of thousands of papaya trees covering 10 acres of farmland on the big island. The executions were performed under the cover of night and appeared to be done with machetes? Why? Because these papayas were different than the other papayas, in that they were genetically modified, making them targets of hatemongers like eco-terrorists. A majority of the papayas grown on Honolulu are genetically modified which are resistant to a virus which nearly wiped out the fruit on the island. I don’t know, man, but if you ask me, these eco-terrorists are off their gourd, which would be a funny quip if, you know, papayas were gourds. Yeah. [azcentral]
