Sales of “Protest-Friendly” Products Fuel Economic Recovery

SATIRE by HOWIE SWAIM | Reporting from Washington, VA | October 19, 2011

Government officials were encouraged by today’s Department of Labor (DOL) jobs report which indicated the economy was growing at a surprisingly rapid pace.

According to the report, the fastest growing manufacturing companies were those producing Vendatta Masks, Tri-Cornered hats, Sharpies®, loudspeakers, cardboard, and other “protest-friendly” materials.  Sales were further buoyed by vastly unanticipated increases in worldwide demand.

Governments across the globe hailed the report as an indication that “We’re on the right track.”

DOL officials expressed optimism, saying “While demand for these specific products may diminish in the near-term, we anticipate a growing demand for torches, pitchforks and guillotines will more than compensate for any of those declines.”

    Those masks are probably made in China.

    Hey I saw the mini guillotines and models of the Bastille they used to sell during the French Revolution when I visited Paris. Unfortunately, due to her announcement that she won’t be running for president, there may be a dramatic decline in demand for Sarah Palin bobble heads. This won’t really affect the Alaskan economy because they are all made in China.
