I just love culture jamming and lying.

Jake? You have some splainin' to do!

(Somebody posted this earlier and it flew right by me at the time. Seems relevant.)
The Yes Men?!?!?

Oh boy... I can see it now - "What do rich business owners do with their money? They buy boats they can't sail and pretend they are Captain Bly. We hopped aboard a sailboat in California headed for Hawaii in a race called the Transpac, where million dollar yachts are the toys of billionaires. Here's our story..."

And from the little I've read here, they will have a story to tell. These guys specialize in finding people who make fools of themselves.

This clip is preceded by a talk they gave (posing as DOW execs) regarding acceptable loss of life in order to make a profit. You wouldn't think anyone would fall for that. Just watch.

How will it be for RD and company? Who knows... I wonder if RD signed a release? And the rest of the hapless crew? Probably.
