KONY 2012

2012-04-19-KONY-2012Greetings satirical Fold!

I hope that for the sake of all the people affected by the Lord’s Resistance Army that someone makes a difference. I know the KONY 2012 video shot into the “most viral video ever” title quickly, but was almost as quickly drowned out by cynicism and then after the director of Invisible Children went nuts—running around his neighborhood in the nude—it all but disappeared from the media. And like so many things before it, out of sight, out of mind.

We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
But, I am a true slack-tivist. “What’s that? I can make a difference by sharing a link? Posting a video on my website? Not go outside? Not donate money? I’m in.”

Perhaps I should be more ashamed of this fact, but my job as a humor-provider has, instead, lead me to create this new shirt: Slacktavism.

Brian has worn it a few times, and well, I feel like we should wear it in real life now.
