Default Stick it to The Man, or, Tales of Effeduppery

Here's someone who wouldn't let The Man hold him down:

One Whom The Man Cannot Thwart or Trifle With

Imprisoned for 18 months for possession of a knife(?), this Brit shows The Man in high style that you can imprison a man's body, but not his spirit, and that a Hero's will to exercise sharp edges shall never be stopped by Tyrants.

Are there brave others amongst us who have in similar spirit dared to spit defiantly in the face of authority? I call herewith for your inspiring tales.

I love the way the English talk:

"We can confirm a prisoner at HMP Bristol has seriously self-harmed."

I refuse, for all my spirit, to use their accent. In fact, I am so stubbornly American, that I told my a friend from Manchester that she sounds like a Scouszer.

Now that is sticking it to the Brits.

They do have an odd love of verbing.

When I first saw this thread I thought cool, Blarg wants us to share stories of people who tried to stand up to authority. Then I clicked the link. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Ewww. Now I have no idea what kind of story we're supposed to share.

What you first said. Any stories where you stood up to authority, especially if it wound up backfiring or turned into a funny, ironic, or appalling story. And whether you thought it was worth it anyway!

Must be pretty hard (not my lame attempt at a pun btw [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]) to do this without passing out from the shock of it.

Funnily enough, I'm pretty sure that it is easier to cut if... it... is hard.

I recall one time on the Howard Stern show, Robin read a news story about a protest in India. I don't recall what they were protesting, but one man set his house ablaze in protest.

Howard found that odd. "I'll show you! I'll burn my house down!"

Sounds like Watts and South Central.

* I'm drunk.

I read the article, and I thought to myself, if anybody could come up with more than a sentence for this, I'd be shocked.

Then, I read Blarg's post, and while I'm not sure it has anything to do with the original article, I'm now sure of one thing.

If I ever, and I mean ever, smoke weed again, I'd pay money just to hear Blarg talk. I'll reread what he said again after this post, but I don't think it had a lick to do with the original, but it was fascinating none the less. Not even fascinating as an entire post, which in a second I'll find out, but just as a word by word study. I'm not leveling, I can't wait to read it again, this time as a cohesive paragragh and just not as a screwed up run on haiku. This [censored]'s on.
