"``The loggers and the cops were absolutely stunned,'' said Nieto, who launched her anti-logging protests last year with demonstrations of what she calls ``Goddess-based, nude Buddhist guerrilla poetry'' to a number of timber and logging sites in and around northern California."

said what?

"One of the protesters, a 22-year-old who gave her name as ''Maple,'' said she was surprised at how agreeable the loggers were when confronted by topless women."

obvious.

boobies!

This was actually the plot of a Baywatch episode. . .

So wait, if more trees are logged, that will result in more nude protests! WHOOHOO!
 
2001-11-10 06:53:54 AM  
Bet there was a lot more wood there than just the bloody trees.

Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Making your voices heard through the use of nudity. Nudity always gets attention. Some people stare in excitement. Others turn their heads in disgust, but still talk about it. Of course this was getting noticed! Why didn't I ever think of this? It's so obvious! And it even stopped the logging for two hours!

I've always supported the claim that women are the smarter of the sexes.

"One of the protesters, a 22-year-old who gave her name as 'Maple,' said she was surprised at how agreeable the loggers were when confronted by topless women." Yeah, give me a topless 22 year old woman, and I'll agree to just about anything too!

Where's my chainsaw??? I'm going out right now to cut down some trees, just try and stop me..... come on.... show me the boobies...

I think I saw pics of this from one of the last times this was done, think it was the chikc (la tigressa, or whatever). If I'm right, and that was a pic of you DON'T WANT TO SEE IT. Nasty skanky looking woman.

(In Charlton Heston voice)
Behold, the power of boobies.
 
2001-11-10 09:38:28 AM  
so wait, aren't men across america gonna become loggers now in the hopes of more boobies?

I wish all protests happened this way, this is the kind of protester I LIKE!
 
2001-11-10 09:54:05 AM  
no pics :(

at a point known as the ``Hole in the Headwaters''

Make your own joke.
 
2001-11-10 10:39:42 AM  
Here yo go. Probably NSFW:

Not the same event but, it's close.
 
2001-11-10 10:46:10 AM  
MisterSym: I'm not following your logic at all. You're saying that the SMART thing would have been for the loggers to ignore the free boobie show?
 
2001-11-10 11:33:53 AM  
The use of suggestive words in that article is something else. The thing is that the reporter probably didn't realize what he was writing at the time. Behold, you have "strip-tease," "hole," and "virgin" in the same article!

"To log the hole in the Headwaters is like raping a virgin, because the Headwaters Forest Preserve is supposed to be kept intact and virginal," Nieto said.

Oh, my. She didn't even realize what she said. "Logging the hole," "head," and "raping the virgin" don't even belong in the same sentence. The connotations here are infinite. Hmmmm . . .

The message these women were trying to send:
save a tree, eat a beaver.
 
2001-11-10 12:33:33 PM  
To Skwidd:
Well of course we would cut down trees if they screamed. I mean, if they screamed all the time for no reason.
 
2001-11-10 02:12:16 PM  
Like I've always said, save the planet by any means necessary...

Their protest would probably be even more successful if they gave all the loggers handjobs and cheetos as a lure to keep from working.

I posted a photo link early on, but looks like my post was censored (in this message list). I know it had gotten posted. Oh well. That's the last thing I'd expect at Fark.

[The husband from the previous Church Police sketch removes his outer clothing to reveal lumberjack's clothes.]

Lumberjack (Eric Idle):
I never wanted to be in such a shambolic sketch. I always wanted to be...a lumberjack! Leaping from tree to tree...as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! The larch...the redwood...the mighty sequoia...with my best girl by my side! The giant deadwood, the spruce...the little Californian root tree! We'd sing, sing, sing!

[He is joined by his Girl (Carol Cleveland) and a Mountie Choir.]

Lumberjack:
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Choir & Girl:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Lumberjack:
I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shopping, and have buttered scones for tea.

Choir:
He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch, He goes to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping, And has buttered scones for tea.

Lumberjack:
[In unison with Choir]
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Choir:
[In unison with Lumberjack]
He's a lumberjack and he's OK,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Lumberjack:
I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

Choir:
He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing,
And hangs around in bars?

Lumberjack:
[In unison with Choir]
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Choir & Girl:
[In unison with Lumberjack]
He's a lumberjack and he's OK,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Lumberjack:
I cut down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspenders and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie,
Just like my dear papa.

Choir:
He cuts down trees, he wears high heels,
Suspenders and a bra?

Mountie (John Cleese):
What kind of goddam pervert are you, you lousy commie fairy faggot...?!

All except Girl:
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK!

[He holds this note; segue to Liberty Bell]

<b>Skwidd</b> Its not from a movie, its from a commedian's comedy routine about getting your financial aid money when in college... though the name of the commedian escapes me.

*grumbles* I really should stop unchecking the damn HTML box when I use tags.
 
2001-11-10 05:37:30 PM  
This should have had an ironic flag, because to stop logging they give the loggers woodies
 
2001-11-10 06:53:34 PM  
I love my state. The fun just never stops here.
 
2001-11-10 11:07:36 PM  
My brain parsed that as flogging...
 
2001-11-11 02:13:27 PM  
I'd feed a log to THOSE beavers!
