Dr. Tremblay, I’m a new member of the ALF and we’re preparing for our first attack against the evil scientific-industrial complex and its exploitation of innocent creatures. My main problem is, I don’t know what to wear! Black is so passé and I don’t want to look ridiculous to the rest of my commando. Do you have any tips?
Undecided in Utah
Thank you for your question, Undecided. I can’t really tailor my approach unless you give me more details, but I can give you some general tips that are applicable to a wide variety of situations.
First of all, remember that green is the new black. Forest green would be especially appropriate in this case, both as a colour and as a message. Also keep in mind that, thanks to the Zapatista resurgence, bandannas are cool again for radicals. They are practical and stylish, permitting wide freedom of movement while concealing your identity. However, I do feel the need to point out that legwarmers will never, ever be cool again.
Hope this helps.
Please help me! Ever since he became an anarchist, my son hasn’t talked to me at all. I call him but he never answers. I don’t know if he’s under the grips of some kind of mind-bending cult of freethinking or something but it’s really worrying me.

Mom, how many times have I told you to stop emailing me?
