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.
