On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world turned out for the Women’s March, precisely a year since last year’s march, which took place on the day Donald Trump was inaugurated as president.
Buoyed by the anomalously warm January weather, as well as by the brewing #metoo movement that has highlighted the endemic sexual abuse of women, the turnout this year was even better than last. More than 200,000 protesters gathered in New York, 300,000 in Chicago, and 600,000 in Los Angeles, but protests on a smaller scale happened virtually everywhere in North America (most notably, a small town in Nova Scotia held a march consisting of 32 protesters).
As has become customary with protests, participants carried signs that were powerful, punny, and often, pretty hilarious. Here are some of are favorites. And for more on goofy puns, here are the 50 Puns So Bad They’re Actually Funny.
