Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    "The USDA has a Fruits&Veggies contest looking for a 30-second video on how to add more plants to your diet."

    I think they should use the one from the Onion. "Just Eat a Fucking Carrot"

      Heh. Your suggestion makes me think that maybe someone will try a recent PETA tactic... and create fruit/veggie porn? :P

        Just fuck a Carrot? Rule 34 to the rescue.

        Quick, to the Gimp cave Robin!
