Want to express your solidarity with the protesters in Iran but find yourself unable to do it on Twitter because you got kicked off of the service for retweeting every message by Jeff Jarvis and adding anti-Semitic commentary (or, uh, whatever reason you got kicked off for; this is purely hypothetical)? Good news! An outfit calling itself Unity For Us is offering these fine, pro-democracy bracelets for a mere 4 bucks a pop (not including shipping). Now you can celebrate making a difference by wearing a piece of plastic on your wrist. Remember how we all wore the yellow ones and then Lance Armstrong’s ball grew back? What are you waiting for? Order now!
In other Iranian kitsch news, “On June 24, Iranian Superstar
Andy Madadian went into an LA recording studio with Jon Bon Jovi,
Richie Sambora and American record producers Don Was and John
Shanks to record a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the
people of Iran.” It’s a Farsi/English version of “Stand By Me,” and
you can find it below, but do be aware that we are monitoring who

Really, you clicked? I am so disappointed in you.
