I am surprised Ottumwa is a good Liberal town.

I don’t know that I would call Omaha and Trenton “obscure” but I would be careful, if I were a protester, to refer to this as a movement, which is a little too literal.

Here’s another fun game—finding nicknames based on the protester’s habits. How about the Pee Party?

I don’t know that I would call Omaha and Trenton “obscure.” In any case, the protesters may want to rethink calling OWS a a movement, judging from descriptions of their level of sanitation.

Speaking of which, how about a game where you come up with nicknames based on the protesters’ habits? How about the Pee Party?

Well, now there’s at least *one* Google result for “Occupy Ottumwa”
