Peaceful protests are HOT right now, you guys! Millions of people marched over the weekend and Greenpeace hung a giant banner behind the White House this morning. Following @HalfOnionInABag on Twitter is the latest fun way to hop on the peaceful protest bandwagon.

It took me less than two seconds to do it. Stuff that’s both easy and makes you feel good is a no brainer. Just as long as that stuff doesn’t hurt anyone or involve you smoking crack.
4) Unlike Trump, This Half An Onion In A Ziploc Bag Actually Represents The People
I know Trump ran on a campaign of representing the common man, but the guy shits into a gold toilet inside of a gold tower with his name in gold on the side of the building. He couldn’t be further from the average Joe. This half an onion in a Ziploc bag has no money, is trapped inside an invisible prison, is damaged goods wasting its short life on social media, and will make you cry if you get too close to it. That sounds substantially more relatable.
5) Following This Half An Onion In A Ziploc Bag Will Annoy Trump And That’s Hilarious
White House aides keep saying President Trump is increasingly upset by televised reports about his poorly attended inauguration, especially when contrasted with the extraordinary attendance at the Women’s March. They also say he’s obsessed with Twitter (ya think?) and lets comments on the social media platform regularly get under his skin. So a Twitter account potentially having a bigger following than his own, and that Twitter account being half an onion in a Ziploc bag, is the perfect storm of things that will piss him off. Even though the half an onion is 21.5M followers behind Trump, the idea that Trump is at all concerned about or bothered by half an onion in a Ziploc bag is wildly funny. Wait, never mind, I forgot he has the nuclear launch codes and might legitimately blow up the world if he gets too pissed off. It’s actually scary as hell. But it’s also still funny. It’s terrifying and funny and life is worth living because of wonderfully confusing dualities.
