Humour (lack of) in ALT politics

After attending the YesMen workshop last night, it is glaringly apparent that what's missing in ALT politics is a sense of humour. Notoriously lacking in the labour movement, it has spread like a virus throughout the Canadian political environment (see NDP).

I'm happy to see "If you can't trust a sock monkey, your soul is dead." on the Rabble site.

I consider ridicule to be one of the highest forms of political action, and the workshop was inspiring. OTPOR is also a good example of how this works.
