Support Iranian Protesters With Cheap Wristwear

Take THAT, Ahmadinejad!
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 clicks through on this item and we reserve the right to use that information at any point in the future.

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

Would it be wrong to call my local congress-person and ask them to sell/donate arms to the protestors? It seems simpler and more effective in the long run.

I forget, does green mean I'll give head on the first date?

This with the Livestrong ads on the sides. Feisty, Awl!

I got one of those green bands at the Iran Inside Out show at the Chelsea Art Museum. I have to say that a) the show was TERRIBLE and b) Iranians, at least the ones who go to art events, are really good looking.

I didn't click, Balk. I watched 'Sending our Love Down a Well' on YouTube instead.

I bought one last week at a vigil for the people of Iran for a buck.

I bought if for $3 from – seems like they have different prices based on number of wristbands you buy.
