Parents are pissed at the new “Dora” that Mattel is now hawking with her trendy new fashions and new habits – another innocent and playful childhood icon has fallen under the target of mass consumerism and drooling marketing agencies, clamouring for a piece of that Dora the Explorer money pot!
People are really pissed about the economy. Well, of course. It sort of makes me scratch my head though, because I’m not sure if the people protesting really have any better answers than our silly bureaucrats, bean counters, and politicians making decisions. I’m also not sure if the people protesting really know what they’re protesting, or why they’re protesting it other than they’re angry about lost jobs and bailouts.
Red Bull is protesting the bodywork of three of its competitors that are exploiting “loopholes” in the new regulations for its Grand Prix racers competiting in the Australian Formula One Grand Prix races starting on Sunday. They’re counting on the “scrutineering” to be found that these cars do not fit the regulations.
I’m sure there was some sense of gratification for bonking this guy on the head with a tear gas canister.
To Israel: We aren’t TRYING to send anxious political activists to your lands to protest something irrelevant to them. They have good intentions, it makes them feel noble and important, just pay your taxes or we’ll still hate you. It is tourism…of sorts. Just usually with stinky, dirty backpacking hippies. And with no money. And little or no experience in your culture.
Farmers in the European Union are protesting a proposal that cow “Flatulence” (what we call “farts” in America) should be taxed, since cows produce gas.
Should we feel guilty about their farts? Well, the Japanese wrote “Everyone Poops” but perhaps they never read the sequel “Everyone Farts”. Recommended reading for every 5 year old. I’m excited now…. How many times will I get to write the word “fart” in this post? Fartidy, fart, fart, McFart.
