One Way to Protest the Tebow Ad


One modest proposal for a response to the Tebow advocacy ad during the Super Bowl. As a way of registering opposition, use the ad time as a bathroom break. City waterworks often report a drop of water pressure during such break times (like at the beginning of half-time).

If many of us who wish to protect reproductive rights would do this together and a similar drop in pressure took place, it could be interpreted as a registration of disapproval and protest.

I won't be watching the game, someone oughta send out a "Tebow tweet" so non-football fans can go flush. I usually "mellow on yellow" so it won't really be a waste of water.

@Rena: "...mellow on yellow..."! Hilarious!

@Lynn: I actually came here to respond to a question I saw on Susan Polgar's blog. She has a guide for parents (.pdf) linked on her ttu SPICE site. The link is here:

Good luck teaching the kids!
