News, but not the serious kind
Honey, your torch is out on the porch!
Blog Guy, a lot of times I hear politicians talk about the “torch-bearing peasants” to describe the mob mentality. They don’t really have those any more, do they?
Good question. Actually, torch mobs seem to be making a comeback, as you can see in these recent photos of people protesting something, somewhere.
Awesome! Where do you even get torches in this day and age?
Look around. Torch technology has progressed considerably since the days when the rabble went after Dr. Frankenstein and the Salem witches and stuff.
Now you’ve got big companies marketing them, with popular brands like the “Flambeau Joe” and the “Scorch ‘n’ Torch 3000″….
The torches you see in these photos are medium-priced models. Interestingly, these guys didn’t go for any of the optional safety features.
So what does that mean?
Well, it pretty much means nobody in this mob will need worry about excessive facial hair.
Activists of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), a Kashmiri separatist party, hold torches during a procession to mark World Human Rights Day in Srinagar December 10, 2009. A torchlight procession was held to protest against what the JKLF say are human rights violations by the Indian security forces on Kashmiris. JKLF, which declared a ceasefire in 1994 against Indian security forces, says it leads a political struggle for Kashmir’s complete independence both from India and Pakistan, who claim the region in full but rule in parts.
