Bark: A novel new energy source

As I was driving to work today, I was listening to a story on the radio about how the EU wants to ban patio heaters on the grounds that they're monumental wastes of energy (a good idea if you ask me - to hell with the smokers, the hot, tar-laden gases they're sucking into their lungs can keep them warm), with all the associated debate about consumer choice and carbon footprints, etc. I'm ruminating on this as I drive, until I notice the name on the back of the fuel tanker in front of me: Emo Oil. And then I start to laugh.

So, they're making oil out of emos now? Well, if it sorts out the energy crisis and cuts down on all that unnecessarily rampant teenage angst, I'm all for it.
