A Pint of Conviction

The co-founders
of Ben & Jerry's ice cream

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield

along with approximately 300 other people

have been arrested

after participating
in the "Democracy Awakening" protests

on the Capitol steps
in Washington, D.C..

The coincidentally Vermont-based
Bernie Sanders'-supporting owners

are no strangers
to creating politically topical names
for their flavors

though "The Average Price
of Acquiring This Arrestingly Good Pint

and Coincidentally Our Only Hope
for Reviving a Democratic Govern-mint

is $27"

may be a little unwieldy.
