Of protests and chickens

I had a wonderful law school flashback when I visited Michelle Malkin’s blog just now.  She has a picture of an anti-War protestor.  Can you spot what’s wrong with this picture?

As Malkin rightly points out, this protestor got just a little confused with the Mercedes symbol:

When I was in my first year at law school, we had a big costume party.  I, true to my Bay Area roots, decided to go as a hippie, and did exactly what that silly protestor did:  I painted a Mercedes sign on my face, instead of a peace symbol.  One of my friends instantly set me right, by teaching me a simple way of remember how to draw the darn thing:  The peace sign is the footprint of the great American chicken.
