I base these posts on Fandango’s Who Won the Week posts, and I use the opportunity just to look at my own newsfeeds.
I’m going right across to the other side of the world this week. Because it’s just so darned civilised!
New Zealand. The Nice Country. There was a protest against mandating COVID vaccines. Protestors camped out on the lawn outside their parliament. Lawn? Do you know what we have? Armed guards!
Anyway, the powers that be decided to dispel the protesters. See? They might well be civilised, but the one thing that authorities the world over don’t like is people protesting.
So do you know what these guys did?
Wait for it.
They turned the sprinklers on!
But these protesters were obviously more savvy than your average New Zealand protester. Do you know what happened in response? They dug trenches, sufficient to route the water away from their camp. I’m not making this up, honest!
Not to be outdone, the authorities came up with a new tactic to up the ante.
You’re not gonna believe this.
Through loudspeakers, they blurred out Barry Manilow’s Greatest Hits.
And these ingenious protesters responded with some music of their own, including Twisted Sisters’ We’re Not Gonna Take It.
And this, dear friends, is why I’m booked on the next flight out*!
- except I don’t fly.
