The Raging Grannies

This is so lovely. The Raging Grannies, members of an anti-war group, caused havoc outside an Arizona military recruitment center:

Elderly members of a US anti-war group called the "raging grannies of Tucson" are due in court following a protest at an Arizona military recruitment centre.

They have been accused of trespassing after entering the centre earlier this month, saying they wanted to enlist.

The group, mostly women in their 60s and 70s, said they wanted to go to Iraq so their grandchildren could come home.

An army spokeswoman says the protesters were not serious about enlisting and were harassing recruiters.

Nine people - five elderly activists and four journalists - are due to appear in court on Monday.

How can the army spokeswoman know how serious the grannies were? Look at them:

Heh. I like these grannies. They should go to Bush next.
