Ben Cohen, of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream fame, agreed at the beginning of the year to donate up to $65,000 to an Occupy Wall Street action group for the creation of a “Batmobile,” a protest van equipped with a light projector for the group’s progressive messages. The Occupy ProjectoVan, a.k.a. the Illuminator, has since been the subject of a “custody battle,” DNAinfo reports, between its activist creators and their benefactor, who is repossessing the vehicle today after disagreements over how the movement’s “mobile billboard” should run. “[Cohen] didn’t want to have to bother with the messy part of being in a democracy,” claimed protester Mark Read. “He’s a 1 percenter telling the 99 percent, ‘I’m your boss.’” But he’s also behind Cherry Garcia, so we’re going to defer to him when it comes to branding.
We say substitute a yoga move for a shot of booze.
Instead of downing a shot, do a downward dog.
Instead of throwing back a Harvey Wallbanger, just try legs up the wall pose.
Every time someone talks about the green new deal, strike an eagle pose. It’ll relax your shoulders and remind you that the green new deal is not only to create jobs and save energy but to save our environment and stop climate change.
When they say Medicare For All, you just meditate.
