And now for something completely different ... Sports Illustrated recently reported on the protests at the Augusta National Golf Club during the Masters Tournament. Feminist Martha Burk has been making a stink for months about the private club excluding women (as if it's any of her business) and organized a protest. Female golf fans are siding with the club, and at least a few people planned to counter protest. But one group in particular caught our eye, and though they decided not to protest, they get lots of credit for their name: Protesters Against Ridiculous Protests.

UPDATE: Sports Illustrated's John Donovan has a humorous review of today's Augusta protests Mixed Message: Masters protest drowns in a sea of silliness.
