One time, I was sitting in my living room, and it was a little too hot. I could not be bothered with all the effort required to turn down the thermostat. So I commanded a pack of my very well-trained dogs to carry me outside on their backs. Outside, it was a little too cold. So, with even more manly brusque in my voice than usual, I commanded the Sun to crank up the temperature a little. And that is how we got global warming.
