You have to admit that is a well made sign and everything is spelled correctly. And who knows, Kafka might have brought a little sunshine into a dismally dreary congress...or not. How about Kafkracrat?

Are any of the above any good?

Absurdity, eh. Don't remember Kafka but I'd take Tom Robbins over the Obamanation at this point. He's pretty absurd.

"A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Not that wiki is trustworthy, but fer a brief sketch:

"Of the four horsemen, the black horse and its rider ...[represent] the prices of wheat and barley, also saying "and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." This suggests that the black horse's famine is to drive up the price of grain but leave oil and wine supplies unaffected (though out of reach of the ordinary worker)...the statement might also suggest a continuing abundance of luxuries for the wealthy while staples such as bread are scarce, though not totally depleted."

I'd be too worried about an ensuing war in Kafkanistan.

moi: brick in the wall

buzzkill: kafkacrat? yes. the ultimate existential scene: waiting in line to meet with a bureaucrat and then be denied. my favorite protest sign of all the time was
"give peace a chance" - but instead of writing peace, they tried to make the symbol but drew the mercedes logo instead. so the sign read "give mercedes a chance" grrrrrrhahahahhahaha
