Parliamentary Protest Pun

thing

Love this seemingly equivocal protest poster that I screen-grabbed earlier today from the Guardian. In Icelandic “thing” means “assembly,” and the parliament is known as the Althing, or Alþing in the local alphabet. So this very clever, mild-appearing protester is stealth-calling for dissolution of parliament.
