Rachel Axler (pictured above standing next to a giant, inflatable rat), a writer for The Daily Show, has liveblogged the Writers Guild protests for The New York Times Sunday Styles. Who says protesting shouldn’t make you laugh out loud?
10 a.m. Let me tell you, if you’ve never participated in a strike, you haven’t lived. And by lived, I mean walked in an ovoid pattern next to a giant, inflatable rat. I hand out brightly colored leaflets to real, engaged New Yorkers, like the tourist from Italy and another tourist, also from Italy. I worry that these people are wasting precious vacation time that could be better spent not understanding bagels or a Broadway show.
