I wish I could have been in the room during the brainstorming session that led to San Francisco protesters stage a ‘vomit in’.
Protester #1: Ok people. Big march on Thursday.. lets come up with some non-violent acts of civil disobedience.
Protester #2: Hmmm. We could link arms through piping and stand in the street, shut down most of the financial district and piss off thousands of people.
Protester #1: No, Stacey’s group is already doing that. Come on people. Think! Think!
Protester #3: How about a Pimple-Pop In?
Protester #1: That’s good! But no. It doesn’t express how outraged we are by this war.
Protester #4: How about a poop-in?
Protester #1: Now you’re talking! But does that really properly illustrate how disgusted we are by the actions of our government?
Protester #5: Umm.. Pap Smear In?
Random Protesters: Scab Pick In! Mucus In! Toe Cheese In! Eye Booger In!
Protester #1: No people! We need something that will let the world know this war makes us sick. Sick to our very stomachs! Sick to… Sick? Sick!
All Protesters: Ah Ha! Sick!
