The Revolution Will be Ribbed

2004-03-05 12:26:45.290111+00 by petronius 3 comments

As political conditions continue to deteriorate in Zimbabwe, groups opposed to dictator Robert Mugabe use every means at their disposal to talk back to power. Acording to Yahoo, the latest method is condom packets emblazoned with rebel slogans. I particularly liked "Get up, Stand up!"

Unfortunately, I can't find any pictures of the actual stickered condoms, although I assume that they're not in English anyway. Sounds like some local group is stirring up a hell of a lot of trouble with a few hundred labels and condoms; good for them!

Slightly off topic, I notice that when I submitted my post the system assigned Politics, Current Events and moron as related topics. Does that refer to Mugabe or to me? I note that other posts listed under that heading include George Bush and Linux.

All topics should be thought of as referring to the subject matter, not to the person making the post. The current list of words used by the categorizer for the category "moron" includes the words "dubya", "political" and "politician". Yes, that's overly broad, but I'd always figured that those were a starting point, not the final say.
