I have this amazing friend named Whoretense. He's a mad scientist.

Seriously.

He's one of the Bellingham Radical Faeries, and he's an engineer in his mundane life. But his passion... is creating these amazing fusions of art and engineering that must be seen to be believed.

Like today. After the gay marriage demonstration, he asked me to go with him up to Red Square at WWU, to try out his latest objet d'art -- a remote controlled wedding cake. With two grooms on top.

I'm not making this up!

He made a fake wedding cake out of a RC car. And put two grooms on top of it.

So we went to WWU and tried it out. It worked well! Passerby didn't seem to know what to make of a gay wedding cake zipping around Red Square!



More photos here.

Unfortunately, after only a few minutes, the batteries died, and that was the end of the WWU field test. But in light of today's protests downtown, it was oh so fabulous!

I have the best friends!
This poster appeared all over Red Square at the WWU campus this week. There's no indication of who posted it or where it came from, but it's clearly satire (note the reason for our nation's founding, and the "brought to you by" statement at the bottom).

I was amused enough to blog it.

The text in full reads:

CALLING ALL PATRIOTIC AMERICANS
RADICAL DISSENT IS GROWING ON YOUR CAMPUS
BY QUESTIONING YOUR GOVERNMENT, THEY ARE WEAKENING OUR NATION
ANY SIGN OF INSTABILITY IS AN INVITATION FOR TERRORIST ATTACKS
OUR NATION WAS NOT FOUNDED TO ALLOW FOR RADICALS TO QUESTION THOSE IN POWER
WE CANNOT LET THIS SEED OF DISSENT CONTINUE TO GROW
REPORT ALL SUSPICIOUS PERSONS
THEY MAY EVEN BE YOUR FRIENDS, BUT THEIR DISSENT THREATENS YOUR SAFETY
TOGETHER WE CAN STRENGTHEN OUR DEMOCRACY
BROUGHT TO YOU BY YOUR FRIENDS AT WALL-MART, EXXONN MOBILE, AND WTO
