And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #33

by

Against abortion? Against people who are against abortion? Against gun control? Against people who are against gun control? Do you hate the other political party with such vehemence you could whip up an angry crowd into horrid acts of mindless violence?

Now you don't have to! Call Rent-A-Mob! We employ thousands of ex-cons who are pros at rousing the rabble. They come complete with their own vegetables to throw, and picket signs custom-made to fit your agenda, no matter how whacko it may be.

Don't send amateurs to incite a riot. Call Rent-A-Mob instead!

    I like the fact that they come armed with vegetables. I have visions of flying pumpkins...

    I probably should put rocks these days. But I was remembering those old movies where some guy would be making a public speech and people would start throwing tomatoes at him. I used to think "Who brings vegetables to a political rally?"

    Oops! I forgot a tomato is a fruit.

    Yes, taking tomatoes or eggs to a political rally does rather suggest an element of premeditation.

    The image of thugs turning up with cabbages and carrots made me laugh out loud. Another superb Sponsor drabble.

    Thanks, Drew. With all the bullshit going on in the political realm in my country, I think there may be a grain of truth to this drabble. Both sides have gone bat crap crazy.
