Regarding the message below: I thought we already had enough cranks and fruitcakes on this list. Here, it seems is another one. Talk about an irrelevant answer!
At the risk of stating the claringly obvious, for Mr/Ms Kool Bird, the plural of "Benny" is of course "Bennies", not "Benny's".   "Benny's" can only mean something belonging to Benny, e.g. Benny's hat.

Cool alright

Did Michael Norris mention global warming? The problem with "that" theory is
except for media hype and natural variation there is no evidence of it
happening. Consistent warming is not recorded anywhere except the concrete
car park next to the air conditioned office. But "Joey" (the taxpayer)
continually funds this kind of research "just in case" although there is no
evidence to support its existence. It is an example of "Benny Science" and
extortion by feral "Sci Benny's". Ski Benny's are practitioners of Benny
Science, areas of low priority meaningless or worthless science. Benny
Science provides jobs not results. Conspiring with the media, feral Ski
Benny's beat up non existent alarmist issues (e.g. Global Warming,
Crocodiles in Tasmania) to frighten Joey into supporting public funded
hobbies. The motive of the Sci Benny is to induce more funds to build
empires and support personal lifestyles. What other "Benny science projects"
can we identify? Was it crocs?

(Benny derived from the Centrelink term welfare beneficiary).
