4. Wonder what would happen if....
a SENATOR were to protest, get arrested, and then refuse to be bailed out.
Then if an important vote in the senate were pending - everyone in the White House and Senate would be in quite a tizzy!

Rep. Gutierrez arrested outside of White House in immigration protest
By Kevin Bogardus - 05/01/10 03:56 PM ET

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) was arrested outside the White House on Saturday during a May Day protest for immigration reform.

Guiterrez had been speaking to a crowd of hundreds at Lafayette Square when he announced that he was going to go to the White House fence with other protesters, sit down, and not move until he was arrested or until comprehensive immigration reform was signed.

Gutierrez, who chanted "Si se puede" ("Yes, it is possible") along with other demonstrators, linked arms with other protesters and took a seat along the White House fence. He was warned to move by police, and when he did not comply he was arrested with a few dozen other protesters.

The crowd chanted the congressman's name as he was led onto the bus.
Gutierrez was wearing a T-shirt that read, "Arrest me, not my friends."

20. Indeed!
By the way, the word ahuacatl from which we derive avocado, is an Aztec word that is the name of the fruit, avocado, and literally means testicle. The avocado is named for the shape it most resembles, a testicle.

Enjoy your avocado wraps!
