As If My Head Didn’t Already Hurt Enough, Occupy Wall Street Is Celebrating Something Retarded Today
Gothamist – Tomorrow marks the beginning of the series of events commemorating the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. The schedule spans three days, culminating in a “People’s Wall” action on Monday morning, when protesters are planning to non-violently obstruct the zone around Wall Street shut down by authorities on the movement’s two-month anniversary. That evening, protesters may stage an assembly in Zuccotti Park after holding a massive rally in Foley Square. The three days of events are broken up into themes of Education (Saturday), Celebration (Sunday) and Resistance (Monday). Tomorrow’s teach-ins, skillshares, and workshops in Washington Square Park are designed to engage the broader community to the principles of the movement.
How can you spend three days celebrating failure? It doesn’t make sense. I’m pretty sure the last time I celebrated a negative was my STD test. No but seriously, what does Occupy Wall Street have to be proud of? If protesters weren’t pouring shit down stairs last year, they were pouring shit on something else. It was a literal shit show.
And now it’s anniversary time? Fuck that. Fuck whatever your cause is, fuck your drum circles, fuck that weird human microphone shit you do. There’s only one real reason to celebrate this anniversary, and that reason is the discovery of the motherfuckin Lotion Man!
That’s right – football is on, the air is crisp, and the Lotion Man is back like cooked crack! My favorite time of year.
PS – Video is from last year. He’s obviously dead now.
