101 uses for a pencil

I am not sure I feel happy about this one...as I don't think you should characture a figure in a way that a group of people find offensive..especially when you know they do. NOT that I think that means anyone has the right to kill them for doing so.pencil
But this felt like a turning point, and the pencil was being used by people on the France Unity March in Paris to represent freedom of speech ... most of my uses for objects are practical, but objects can also be symbolic.
I made a copy of a "pencil flag" I had seen people carrying on the march on 11th January 2015, but I couldn't get a photo of it on screen.
