My wife found this on facebook this morning. Doesn't this just hit the mark? Here's a transcript of the image text:

It's pretty amazing that our society has reached a point where the effort necessary to
- Extract oil from the ground
- Ship it to a refinery
- Turn it into plastic
- Shape it appropriately
- Truck it to a store
- Buy it, and bring it home
...is considered to be less effort than what it takes to just wash the spoon when you're done with it.
Sorry, plastic spoon manufacturers, but your time is up!
