If you haven't read the classic SF novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, by Robert A. Heinlein, the whole Simon Jester thing may be confusing to you.
Simon Jester was the "imaginary" creation of a group of Loonies fomenting rebellion. He was a little devil who tormented the Lunar government with catchy little jokes, ditties, poems, slogans, and cartoons. Later, Simon expanded into the poltergeist business by playing practical jokes on gov-goons and bureaucrats. He always signed his work with a little cartoon image of a grinning devil.
YOu can do it in ASCII this way

"Simon" was a game everyone could play, anyone who wanted to bug the ruling authoritarians, that is. Any pissed-off miner could scribble a bit of seditious graffiti on a wall and attribute it to "Simon" with the easily scrawled logo. To the Authority, it seemed that Simon Jester was everywhere, all the time.
We need Simon Jester now.
The Simon Jester Project (http://www.simonjester.org
) is the progression of that ideal.
The Simon Jester Project has Flyers, Pamphlets, Stickers, and business cards that can go on bulletin boards, car windshields in parking lots, or simply be handed out. There are Stickers which can go anywhere: But think about where you're considering putting them. Especially on private property, consider whether the owner might not appreciate it. Stickers can also go on packages and envelopes. Kinda like Easter Seals, but a lot more fun.
Personall I prefer using the Business cards. They can be handed out, left on magazine piles in waiting rooms, set on counters, stuck under windshield wipers, or even flung out high windows (I don't recomend this method, especially in WA state where the littering laws make Torquemada look lient). I even occasionally put them in my bill payment envelopes, as well as my tax return.
With the passage of HR 1955 "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism of 2007" by the house in June of 2008 and the current insanity in Washington DC. Simon Jester is needed even more, and the left will find some way to outlaw him, but it is the best bet for Civil Disobedience not to mention just plain fun.
