This picture is a creative collaboration between me and Buzzsawmonkey, who told me: “I had an idea last week for a ‘FREEDOM’ poster: two pix side by side. One of an Iraqi holding up an index finger with purple ink, one of those voting pictures. The other of someone in TSA uniform, holding up a latex-gloved index finger – brown to the middle knuckle.”
(Freedom: just another thing the USA is outsourcing overseas.) In Iraq, the citizens give their government the finger. In Soviet America, government fingers YOU! (I can’t believe I’m doing a Yakov Smirnoff joke in 2011. I’m so ashamed.)
UPDATE: If you don’t recognize the reference in the subject line, it’s from this song.
