With all the teabagger Tea Party protests planned for Thursday, including two in Jackson Hole, writers should offer our services to help out these patriots and make a little extra cash.
Tea Partiers, before you take to the streets to decry the polititions, contact us for copy editing of your signs. Get the correct spellings of wily words like birth “certificate,” “Constitution” and “secession.”
Your made-for-Fox media spectacle will be that much more credible, all for the low, low price of $75 per hour.
Not only will you spare yourself embarrassment, but you’ll be stimulating the economy by putting underemployed English majors to work. All while soothing the angst of grammar Nazis nerds who are driven mad by misspellings.
The more creative could join the pranksters who’ll be infiltrating the Tea Party mobs and making the demonstrations even more ridiculous.
As much as I’d like to partake in the Tax Day mischief, I’ll be too busy racing the deadline to file my taxes.
Update: D.O.G. is offering free breakfast burritos for anyone going to counter-protest or otherwise engage the Tea Partiers. The morning rally is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Y intersection by Cutty’s.
