I know, this really should have gone up on Sunday, but we skipped April 1 this year for some reason. Plus, a reader shared this video on our April 2 solar energy spill piece (too late for April 1). I think it’s already a classic within green and cleantech circles, but I don’t think we ever shared it here on CleanTechnica, so I’m finally getting to that! If you haven’t already done so, check out this great Onion video above on how wind farms might blow the world off orbit, how they could make the Earth spin so fast that humans could fly right off it, how wind is blowing into some communities’ water supplies (and could get into kids’ brains), about solar energy sucking our sun dry, and… coal snack bars. Enjoy!

Not exactly the same humor, but this video also reminds me of Mr. W, one of my favorite videos ever. Here’s that one:
