Erik the Red’s complementary color country

Recently, intelligence networks (actually the Arts and Letters Daily, which is pretty intelligent even if it’s not a network) have come up with a startling report. It concerns something that has bothered Clandestine Panda Service geographers for some time, even though they didn’t want to say anything:

Why isn’t Greenland green?

Well, actually, it turns out that it is.  Or at least it’s getting there.

In fact, that same, weird, like, global warming thing that was mentioned here yesterday—yeah. Like, that’s actually part of it.

Seriously though, with only 56,000 people, a capital called “Nuuk,” a surface area thrice the size of Texas, reindeer (!!!), and an average temperature of 1.93 degrees celsius, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’RE ALL WAITING FOR. COME ON—GREENLAND HO!

    I actually think that sounds great! I’d go be a Greenland Ho in a heartbeat.

    It’s the name of the capital that does it for me. I don’t know if you say “nook” or “nuke” or “nuck,” but regardless it sounds way better than London, Paris, Washington, Tokyo, etc. “I live in Nuuk,” you could say, and people would stare at you blankly, and you could smile proudly to yourself, because not only is your name cooler, most of those places would be under several feet of water in a few years (if the scientists are right and lets face it they’re all hippie communists), while your country would, for the first time in centuries, enjoy life without a lot of frozen water lying on top of it. Buy Hummers! I say; make Greenland green again!

    A+ Title demonstrates excellent linguistic and chromatic sensibility
