You Have To Fight

(For the right - to party) according to the Beastie Boys.

Personally, I've moved from anger to silent resignation and acceptance which apparently appears to anger people even more.

"I'm fucking talking to you, are you even taking notice??????"

"Not really"

*shrugs and wanders off*

However, I did hear a funny story whilst I was recently in the United Kingdom of Stupidity. Apparently, a group of Eco-friendly Vegans (or whatever) were protesting outside a London branch of KFC (the shite fast-food place) as they were indignant about how the chickens are treated before they are massacred and deep-fried.

In itself, no issue so far. I'm not overly keen on people telling me what I can or cannot eat but, they felt the need to protest - which is fine.

So after 10 minutes of marching round in circles with placards and banners, chanting about the chickens rights to do whatever, the manager of KFC comes out and says....

"Excuse me, would you go away please - you're putting customers off"

Hmmm, that'll be why it's called a PROTEST then.

The Vegans would have argued back but they were too weak to move ;-)

Even funnier, during the BIG antiglobalisation riots in London a couple of years ago, a bunch of Scrumpies smashed in the windows of MuckDonalds ... and then went in and looted a load of burgers ... and ate them!

D'oh!

Another superb thing to do is to approach the problem with a steady, even, tone of voice and a look of sympathy. Drives 'em nuts. I stopped doing the screaming, shouting and gouging thing a long time ago. Not sure how that approach would work at a protest march though.

Daphne -> Scrumpy has a gang?

Tom -> Indeed, but I'm not sure about the 'look of sympathy' - was that released by XTC??
