Cartoons and games, song parodies and famous names, quotable quotes and a “Guilt Relief Donation Form” … That’s what Occupy Wall Street is all about!
We’ve been wondering and now we know, thanks to “Occupy: A Grown Up Coloring Book Novel,” available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other major booksellers.
The Daily Caller, with more:
The folio, published by Really Big Coloring Books of St Louis, features a colorful cover with images of Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs and an unidentifiable MC in sunglasses. …
The book “includes modern and historical figures with quotations from Plato to O’Reilly, Hannity to Maddow, Obama to Boehner,” reads a press release. “There are pages dating back to the Robin Hood era, drawings of various parks, political views from every angle and a few surprises with imaginative satirical pages.”
The release also says “Occupy: A Grown Up Coloring Book Novel” includes songs, poems and games — and “a true to life ‘Guilt Relief Donation Form’ for the overburdened 1%!”

Now, what I want to know is, did the Occupy movement itself sanction this coloring book? The Occupiers might not like it that “Really Big Coloring Books of St. Louis” (let alone Amazon and Barnes & Noble) are capitalizing on, er, capitalism with this coloring book. Surely the protesters don’t condone this display of creativity or the desire to design a product to satisfy a demand to earn a profit. No, surely not. So, on second thought, don’t order the book, after all. If you can afford to spare $6.99 on a coloring book, you clearly have too much cash on hand. Why don’t you just make the donation instead?
