Here's an attack on Free Tibet bumper stickers.

Please don't get me wrong. I'm very much in favor of freeing Tibet. I consider it an important cause, unlike the author of this article. I know the age and location of the Dalai Lama, unlike Joe in the reply section. But I do have to agree with this guy: Freeing Tibet has become a very trendy cause, and that's stupid.

I'm with the Olympic protesters, but this pretty much says it.

From "Steve" in the peanut gallery... Why should we free it? The chinese do a damned fine job- hell, let's let them annex Myanmar, Korea, and the stupid parts of America (hello, rhode island!)

uhhh...

(However, I do find myself now wanting the "I Enjoy Oxygen" bumper sticker.)

I'm more amused by people's reactions than anything else. This "Jennifer" in the responses for example: "It's unfortunate that you're thought process is so simplistic." Then she goes on to claim she was a college professor for several years, and proceeds to follow with a terrible run-on sentence with way too many commas. It scares me that we have college professors with such a poor grasp of the English language that they don't even know the difference between your, and you're.

And Scott, that comic is priceless, hahahahah.

P.S. Where can I get one of those "Communism 4 me! (and you!)" bumper stickers?

Word. (On all counts.)
