Under the watchful eyes of the police, the clowns then navigated their way through the streets of Edinburgh and stumbled into a Tesco on Nicolson Street. Here they discovered the latest invention of green supermarket spin, ‘carbon labelling.’ Shoppers seemed surprised, but amused by the presence of the tricksters who were going about their normal shopping routine. The clowns were eventually forced to leave by security at both Sainsbury´s and Tesco.
At Tesco today, Clown combatant Major Look said, “We are here to draw attention to supermarket food mile freaks such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s who adopt extremely harmful practices in order to sell food from all over the world, all the year round. Instead of promoting local Scottish produce and seasonal fruit and vegetables, big supermarkets air-freight food into the country from far away, contributing tons of CO2 to the atmosphere. Transporting food by plane is one of the fastest growing methods of distribution, and also the most polluting.”
When asked to comment on the tactics of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army, Kernel O’Truth commented,
“It’s better to be foolish than fossil fuelish!”
