tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE "a group of revolutionaries (in Egypt?) who fight the power by showing noting but the highest respect for that power"

As I recall, Alfred Jarry rebelled against his service in the military by doing things like fanatically embracing sweeping the courtyard (ordinarily a punishment). I ran across this type of thing elsewhere recently, too. Perhaps it was in Genesis P-Orridge's interview w/ Tony Oursler on UbuWeb. Whoever it was mentioned being part of a group that sarcastically embraced the dictatorial characteristics of a school administrator.

There's also, of course, the suspicious tactics of the Anti-Neoists & their slogan "It's Always One O'Clock" (meaning that it's too late for lunch & that there'll be, therefore, NO LUNCH BREAK). "Would you like fries with that?" Whether they're "revolutionaries" or not is hard to say. I personally think they can't be trusted:

I think it may be a good political tactic for the Left in the United States. They tried everything else!
