Edward Norton & Groupon's VERY Young Earth Theory

Yes - that's that text:

It's Earth Day -- the Earth's Birthday!
The Earth is celebrating its 400th birthday -- Groupon and Edward Norton want to help it reach it's 401st by promoting green living and eco-themed products.

This has to be one of the most puzzling e-mails I have ever received, and whoever edited that copy must have had the worst history and science teachers, because this just makes no sense.

Is the idea that the earth was 1612 AD was really the first year the earth existed?

And if I don't buy a reusable sandwich bag and earth friendly carpet cleaning will the world end in less than 365 days...especially if I don't get a good deal?

And what does Edward Norton have to do with any of this? I know he was in American History X, but I'm starting to wonder if his American History has something to do with the creation of the earth? Maybe that's the X.

Happy Earth day. Enjoy the little infographic of the earth with dentures eating a cupcake with his buddy the moldy moon.

That is one confusing banner there for sure. I wonder how he did his math. It's already 2012.

Let's focus on the positive parts of the email. That humanized earth with dentures is pretty cute. Looks like it went to my cosmetic dentist Mandurah.

Deodorizing: Equal parts baking soda and corn starch. Sprinkle on the carpet evenly and allow to rest for 30 minutes. Then vacuum.
