  • Mood:

the protest to end all protests

I'm thinking now about what would make an effective protest rally, and it really comes down to what effect you're looking for.

Me? I'd like people to think twice before staging one of these. They have to mean it, or the thing becomes pointless. So, here's what I propose:

Pick a date. We'll stand on either side of a busy street and hold up signs:
  • EYES ON THE ROAD, RUBBERNECK

  • YOU CAUSE TRAFFIC JAMS

  • LIFE'S TOO SHORT FOR THIS

  • WHO CARES WHAT WE'RE PROTESTING?

  • HONK IF YOU'RE IMPOTENT
Anyway, those are just off the top of my head - you'll probably think of better ones and make me look bad.

We'll have to dress in camoflage, of course, and shout catchy sayings until our voices give out.

I'm open to suggestion on those, too - all I came up with is "Traffic, flow. Roll up the window!"
(repeat it for a while; it'll grow on you)

So, yeah..

Who's with me?
