Today should be ‘Hug Your Local Anarchist‘ day (or other labor activists of numerous political persuasions). If you appreciate the fact that employers cannot work 11-year-olds to death, are legally required to provide breaks, and must exercise at least some limitations on taking advantage of people in desperate need of work, then find that sweet little gutter-punk with a ‘circled A’ tattooed on his or her face and kiss it.
Unless, of course, they have said tattoo because they shop at Hot Topic–in which case, nonviolently thump them in their thyroid cartilage.
[PS: Yes, this is a re-posting from last year (“But I just love Hot Topic so much”). Wow, it’s been a year already? What have you accomplished? Exactly. Get to it. Oh, and I added this link for those who ‘caught’ the title. Enjoy.]
