I'd pay someone to catch Kim Kardashian off guard and ask her if she knows what the EPA is. She'll think it's a fashion label.

A Congressman even jumped on board.

Might be time for a Kardashintervention.

I'm the last original author of the Clean Water Act, but I have no idea who/what a Kardashian is and I rarely play games. You OK, @EPAwater?
