I love this one... it reminds me of the 'Father Ted' episode (Se01Ep03) with the polite protest signs reading "Careful Now" & "Down With This Sort Of Thing". I always try and see what's written on the back of those "The End is Now" placards expecting "...For The Sale at Carpet-World" or somesuch; been disappointed on all but 2 occasions.

I do like it when this kind of counter-protest trolling is done to groups like the Westboro Baptist Cretins. -Pennpenn 05:10, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but is the mention of scrabble significant? I think somewhere there is something about scrabble and 'end time' governments, but I'm not sure. ----

In "The Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy" a set of hand made scrabble pieces are used to "randomly" determine the Question to which the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything refers. Here's a link that explains it. May not be what the poster above is thinking about, but it's interesting.

A Dutch politician of the center-right party VVD once went to a left-wing protest. He called it building bridges. (The ruling coalition slogan.) His comment on Twitter: "Quite a lot of angry people here."
