Everyone has probably heard of Roundup Brand weed killer. In fact some of you may have used it in your lawn. Many are concerned that the weed killer is getting into the water supply and harming people. A Monsanto Spokesman recently appeared on a French News show to discuss how safe the week killer is. He claimed it was so safe you could drink it and it wouldn’t harm you. What Patrick Moore, the Monsanto lobbyist, didn’t know was that the interview was about to make him look very foolish.
When Moore said you could drink an entire quart of the weed killer and it would not harm you, he was caught off guard with the interviewer promptly offered him a glass of it to drink. The ensuing conversation quickly revealed how much the spokesman for Monsanto actually believed his own words.
Moore: “You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you.”
Interviewer: “You want to drink some? We have some here.”
Moore: “I’d be happy to, actually…. Uhh…Not.. Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”
Interviewer: “If you say so, I have some glyphosate, have some.”
Moore: “No. I’m not stupid.”
Interviewer: “So, it’s dangerous, right?
Moore: “No, People try to commit suicide with it and fail; fail regularly.”
Interviewer: “Tell the truth, it’s dangerous.”
Moore: “It’s not dangerous to humans.”
Interviewer: “So, are you ready to drink one glass?”
Moore: “No, I’m not an idiot.

This is so great. It’s almost identical that that famous scene from Erin Brockovich. Only this time it was caught on tape in real time. Priceless!
