Hi,
This I thought was funny. we were at my husband's work holiday dinner last night. Nice affair. After dinner there was an improv group to entertain us. They do alot of audience participation things. For one they hande out paper and pen and we were to write down random phrases, so I grab a few and write "Support a new 9/11 investigation", "9/11 was an inside job", "Ron PaUL for President."
So, they get collected and tossed on the stage flloor and the group picks them up and uses them. The funniest part to me was that the setting of this particular scene was "living in a porta-potty"... and the guy picks up the 9/11 was an inside job " card and yells it.
I thought it was funny. It didn't get alot of reaction , and they moved to the next card. But, if it has 1-2 people google it...my work is done for a day.
These are the type of people I would expect to know this stuff already actually , and maybe they do. 20-30 somethings are the majority, computer software developers, smart, geeky.......I'm generalizing. A few 40 's (us),no 50+ year olds.
My husband was beside me and he would be mortified if I took it any further and started a conversation with the people at our table, so I didn't. Gotta pick your battles.

Talked with a Bush supporter today. He was drunk. I think I'm on to something, here. ;)
