Eve Ensler's Incoherent Contribution

Speaking on the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, authoress of The Vagina Monologues says:
It is a spontaneous uprising that has been building for years in our collective unconscious. It is a gorgeous, mischievous moment that has arrived and is spreading. It is a speaking out, coming out, dancing out. It is an experiment and a disruption.
Apparently, the sit-in has produced a new form of communication:
There are certain hand signals that are used in the group to signify response. My favorite is the signal for agreement, or something you like a lot .

People lift their hands and wiggle their fingers. This has come to be called Upsparkles.
Upsparkles. Really.

For fear of losing further brain cells, I'll stop now.
