Yes, it's May Day today - a somewhat loosely defined global holiday designed to bring attention to worker's rights as well as an opportunity for civil protests of other social injustices.

And also, apparently, an inspiration for countless crazies to post videos to YouTube.

As we prepare for a day full of protests and marches here in Seattle, and the City of Seattle itself readies for traffic jams and the possibility of damage and destruction at the hands of rock-throwing anarchist deviants, perhaps a tour through the lighter side of May Day-related YouTube videos will help everyone remember the easiest way to let your voice be heard today: wasting time on the Internet instead of working.

With that, here are some of the gems we found.

Protest From Home

Honestly, this is ingenious. Sure, we all like the idea of sticking it to the man ... but sometimes that shit is hard. I mean, you have to, like, get dressed and get out of bed and shit. You have to put on shoes! I hate the one-percent like any other respectable hipster, but fuck that. Fuck putting on shoes! Well, now there's an answer. Here's some inspiration for sticking it to the man from the comfort of your own home ... while lying in bed ... without having showered ... after you had someone else call in sick for you. Brilliant!

Floating Protest Tent

Regular protests are boring. All that marching and chanting is a yawn-fest. Protesters in London obviously realize this, which is why, I'm sure, they created this floating protest tent. Or something.

Occupy Fur

Quote the man in the leopard print Snuggie thing: "Didn't you guys tell me that y'all had run all the all the perverts and all the communists out of the park? So what are we doin' now?"

Glenn Beck Saying Crazy Shit

Glenn Beck says you should ask for overtime today. Then go spend an extra hundred dollars. "What, are you going to leave it in your bank account?" he asks. "It's going to be worth A LOT later." You know, because the revolution is upon us, people.

Bold Prediction

Here's a man who claims to be able to see the future. Of May Day, he predicts: "It's just going to be the same shit ... a bunch of hipsters yelling and screaming." Eerie.
