Dressing for the unserious

Did you see this? A group of Palestinians — during their regularly scheduled weekly protest, no less — paraded around dressed up like those blue things from Avatar. In some of the images, they had the little tails and pointy ears and bows ‘n’ arrows and everything.


Does this mean they watch 3D blockbusters in the camps? Or is there some Rachel Corrie type Westerner in the background telling them, “paint yourselves blue and you’ll, like, totally pwn!”

Or, taking this to the logical conclusion, are they waiting for a sympathetic Jew to come along and lead them to victory against Israel?

If that pudgy child in the lead is anything to go by, there’s no shortage of cake in the West Bank.

I think the “sympathetic Jew” angle may win you Yahtzee!

Sheesh. The frogs momentarily have all the Olympic medals for some figure skating thing tonight, and you are concerned about permaprotesting “Palestinians” with blue skin?

Have you no shame?

PS to Palis: Ya know, stop blowing up Israeli teenagers in coffee shops. Stop shooting those little faggy rockets into Israeli civilian neighborhoods. Stop having your Mickey Fucking Mouse characters pretending to get killed by Israeli soldiers on kiddy fucking TV. Stop dressing your kids up as pathetic cowardly Jihadi murderers. Stop doing this, and maybe you won’t have to color yourselves blue to get people to give a shit about you. Until then: fuck you.

And now I have Elliot Gould saying “We waaant all your pollennn” inside my head. And he won’t leave.

For an encore, they could dress up like Belushi’s samurai character. Or just keep with the blue theme and dress up like Smurfs. Holding “Israel=Gargamel” signs or something.

Landsharks, that’s the ticket. Maybe they should have gone with giant papier mache heads of Obama and Hillary.

This ‘sympathetic Jew’ would like to pick em off one by one with her Walther PPK and being that they’re blue makes it oh so much easier to sight. That’s the sympathetic part.

Acting like movie and TV characters to get attention for an afternoon is just silly.

If they’d act like Gandhi for even three months they’d own the place.
