Panties for Peace!

In Burma, that is.
Activists exasperated at the failure of diplomacy to apply pressure on Burma's military regime are resorting to a new means of protest against the regime's recent crackdown: sending female underwear to Burmese embassies.
There's got to be some snarky remark about fanservice or vending machines or something here, but I can't quite get it to jell...

Didn't Frank Zappa make a quilt of women's underwear thrown on stage at his concerts?  Maybe they can get this as a weapon of mass cooties.

The world is not just weirder than we imagine, it is weirder than we can imagine.

More seriously, The situation is Burma sounds horrible, and I hope this helps.
