Fun With Microwaves

The Question

The Answer

Hunger Strikes are So Hot Right Now

It seems like everyone is on a hunger strike: Close to 1000 Chinese protesters , A man in Idaho, Russian apartment buyers, Indian Univeristy Teachers, A California Artist, and African Immigrants in Brussels are all starving themselves for different causes right now. Even Emma from Degrassi: The Next Generation is on a hunger strike of some sort.

But I think Saddam Hussein wins the award for Least Effective Hunger Strike. What could his advisors be thinking? "Come on, Saddam, nobody would ever want to see you go hungry - your prosecutors will do anything to prevent you from having a slow, painful death." And this hunger strike really fits Saddam's whole image. When I think "Peaceful Protest" I automatically think: Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., Saddam Hussein.

I just notice that there is one piece of punctuation I often use unnecessarily: The colon.

Microwaved male prosthetic devices, faking urine drug tests, half hearted hunger strikes and K-Fed.... Welcome to the Monkey Barn, Elvis. You're going to fit right in!

Microwaved Severed Penis would make a great band name, no?

Saddam Hussein's hunger strike has got me all depressed. On the plus side, when kids won't eat their vegetables, you can tell them, "Don't you know Saddam Hussein is starving?"

Oh, and take it from someone who knows; use of your colon is never unnecessary!
