NATO Scrambles to Respond to Protestors' Signs
"Man with two pacifiers is 'throwing horns' and his friend in black jorts is climbing onto bridge warning bell to tear down our banner for peace and security. So my chief concern here is how to get him down from the bell without hurting himself. Do we get a ladder to him or maybe a slide and he can go down this.

And in the middle is an Egypt Hieroglyphic of an eye. Look, our time is almost up, so I will just hold a vote on this and whoever impliments can figure out what this sign means. Raise your hand if you are for the sign..."
