Throw (virtual) tomatoes at AIG!

Y'know, the AIG million-dollar bonuses being paid out with our taxpayer money got me mad enough to, well, throw something.

So MoveOn member Kris Khoury helped us whip up a game that does just that!

It's called "The Great AIG Tomato Toss," and it's oddly addictive. We should stop throwing money at the people who ruined our economy—and start throwing (virtual) tomatoes. Play it here:

It's a fun game, but it's got a serious purpose: to get the outrageous AIG bonus money back. When you play the game, you can also sign our petition to demand the return of the bonus money. The more people who play the game, the more signatures we'll be able to deliver to congress. 300,000 of us have signed already, and we're shooting for 400,000.

So check out the game, pass it on, and then sign the petition if you haven't already. Together, we're going to get some justice from the people who played a role in creating this whole financial crisis in the first place—even if it that call for justice starts with a single, juicy, digital tomato.

Thanks for all you do.
