This person has put thought into his or her poster. Being able to demonstrate exactly how you think in just a few words is good for only a few things; one of them is to increase your anger at the thing you’re talking about. However, opinions always have a history, which is why this person decided to take the long route.
There’s nothing like sitting down with a few cups of coffee between you and hashing out the differences in your trains of thought and the reasons why they might be headed in the same or different directions. Too many words, man!
It's a Really Complicated Process
Lots and lots of books make their way onto the New York Times Best Seller list. We're not sure how it happens, but it's much more complicated than you might think. The reason there are so many is that every book that is on the list – not just the top spot – has a right to claim itself as a New York Times Best Seller.
The list is pretty long, and a book can claim the title even if it's on there for just a week. Or less. But don't be fooled – there are tons of books that never get close to this big list, and for good reason. It's because they're very bad.
She Hates Him
Don’t you just love it when someone is holding up a protest sign that kind of has nothing to do with the protest itself? This sign was held up during the Chicago Teachers Union protests. And we assume that the protesters in question have a problem with politician Rahm Emanuel.
Because when you say that someone likes the rock band Nickelback, you’re basically implying that they have bad taste or there is something wrong with them. We think people need to cut Nickelback some slack. After all, they have made a few good songs over the years. Think about “She Hates Me” and “Rock Star,” for example.
Sometimes, a protester might be wondering why the protest they are attending even needs to happen to begin with. And it seems fitting that someone would be having an existential dilemma at a March for Science. And yet, that’s exactly what was happening when this protester created and held up the following sign.
We feel like maybe they could have come up with something more powerful. But hey, we’re just neutral bystanders looking for the funniest signs, and this one certainly deserves its place on this list. Because if this was a list of the most effective protester signs, this certainly wouldn’t have made the cut.
A Generational Divide
Some protests happen because of the disparity in outlooks between different age groups. Today, a new generation seems to sprout every few months. What about the good old times when boomers were the thing for what seemed like decades? This photo gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling.
It’s good to know that protesters in this age bracket still know how to let out their funny side every once in a while. You can even see the little smirks plastered on their faces as they hold up the sign. This photo was taken at the Aged Care Protest in South Australia back in 2009.
