New Event at the Beijing Summer Olympic Games: The Uphill Tank Slalom.

(click ad for closer look)
Zing, Zedong! Pow Mao! Tiananmenapause(?)! (OK, I'll stop) In the lead up to the Summer Olympics, Amnesty International—through a worldwide cabal of eager ad agencies looking to add some moral luster to their portfolios—has been playfully slamming the naughty People's Republic of China with a bunch of "take that!" print ads (here's one, two more).
Amnesty of course loves this arrangement because they get free ads; the ad agencies love it cause they get to stop working on copier/toothpaste/bank advertising for a brief period and "do some good." Yay everybody!
