"Troops Home Fast" or "American Idiot"

Oh my fucking God! They have got to be kidding!

In People magazine, in an article dated "July 4th, 2006", there is a story entitled "Cindy Sheehan, Stars Begin Hunger Strike". Apparently, Cindy "Corpse Rider" Sheehan is going to be on a "Fast" until September 1st. This fast includes, fruit smoothies with protein powder and also it seems, coffe with vanilla ice cream. I don't call that a fast, I call that a diet. And judging from this recent photo of Cindy, she could definately use it.

Also, a few Hollywood celebrities are joining Cindy in her "Fast", volunteering to go on "Rolling Hunger Strikes". The list includes Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Willie Nelson, and the Rev. Al Sharpton. Ah Willie, everyone knows that pot gives you the munchies, don't even think you can fool us. You'll be into the brownies before the first night is up! *snicker* What the hell are "Rolling Hunger Strikes"? Well, I'm glad you asked. Basically, if you were on a "Rolling Hunger Strike", you would give up food for a day, and then the next person would go without for a day, and so on. Again, I call this a diet. At most its a hunger strike with none of the negative effects like malnutrition and death. Some however, like "Diane Wilson, co-founder of the Code Pink: Women for Peace" are giving up food entirely until the troops come home. Okay, now that's more like it, but still lacking somehow. Hey, if you all want to really commit to your protest and show your beliefs, I have an idea. Do what the buddhist monks in Vietnam did. This will not only demonstrate your true, unwavering belief in your cause, it'll get you out of our misery for good. Not that I think anyone of you would actually do this, you're all too chicken shit.

Oh well, life keeps on going and going and going, just like the Energizer Bunny.
