Snow in Las Vegas reminded me of this South Park episode exchange...
From the Script from the South Park episode "Lice Capades"
Vice President: Huh right, the world is conscious. It makes perfect sense. [kneels and knocks on the scalp several times] Hello. Anybody? [the other lice begin to laugh.]
Travis: If we have made too much of an impact, then that consciousness would try to snuff us out! I think we're looking at a global catastrophe, the likes of which we've never seen!
Vice President: Poodiggery and poppycock!
Travis: I think we need to put all resources now into a full investigation, perhaps even begin a licewide evacuation.
Vice President: Evacuation?! Tomorrow is the Gootack Festival. Do you know how much money we would lose? Escort Mr. Mayfield out. The President can't be bothered any further.
Travis: [as security escorts him away] Damn you Vice President Craig! You could be killin' us all!
