There’s a hilarious pseudo-manifesto by John Kenny in the New Yorker on behalf of a very different Occupy movement.

We, too, have mobilized.  We come from near and far, by any means necessary, some on private jets, others on extremely large private jets.  But you will not find us sleeping in a park and waiting in line at a Burger King to urinate. Have you heard of Mustique? Because that”s where we have mobilized. Don”t bother trying to Google Earth us, though, because we have proprietary military software that prevents you from doing so…

Real laughter in the dark.  You can read the whole piece here.
