He's just one of my favorite actors. He also happens to be the actor who uttered my favorite line of dialog in all of cinema:

>I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem may have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object.

I think people in general have a pretty good understanding that the benefits of EV cars depend on the source of their power generation, and that the promise of EVs depends on pushing for more generation by renewables. Also the flip side, that regardless of what happens with primary power generation, none of it matters unless we are all or mostly driving EVs.

A really not fun fact: the original meaning of the term 'faggot' was 'sticks to be burned', which also explains the British slang for cigarette 'fag'. So this joke, such as it is, kinda glibly ignores, or maybe even leans into, a whole history of brutal homophobia in which gay people often paid with their lives. So sorry to get all schoolmarm on you, but this joke kinda sucks.
