6469: Marching Over Monkeys.
Weekend update with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Spike Lee joined the protestors calling for a boycott on the New York Post for its infamous monkey cartoon. Lee even asked celebrities and sports figures to stop dealing with the publication. No word yet from Michael Jackson and Bubbles.
• Saab has filed for bankruptcy, leading to predictions that the brand will be spun off or sold by parent corporation General Motors. Wonder if GM will offer employee discount prices to anyone interested in buying Saab.
• Mining company Anglo American announced plans to cut 19,000 workers. A name change would be nice too.
• Early estimates show Girl Scout cookies sales may be down 19 percent in certain areas. No word yet if officials foresee Girl Scouts layoffs.
