I've been thinking of printing up t-shirts with the slogan "Die techo-yuppie scum" scrawled on the front but now I think "Die ugly corporate sons-of-bitches", in Dutch, might be better. Or maybe a selection to gain more rack space on St. Marks Place.

According to a Wired News report:

Winners were careful with their five-word allotment. The biggest laugh of the night followed the speech of Jodi.org, winners in the Arts category, who snarled "Ugly corporate sons-of-bitches!" at the crowd. http://www.wired.com/news/news/culture/story/18591.phpl
