Pulling one's pants down: everyone's indignant

The Spanish media is full of crisis and corruption. And the social phenomenon called variously 15-M (for 15 May, when it was born) or indignados, for their high indignation quotient, is there, too. The Left, i.e. PSOE and Izquierda Unida, has been trying for some time to use elements of the movement for their own (sparce) electoral purposes. But we just could not resist this photo of a sign held up at one of the movement's many demos and camp-outs. It reads: "I can't tighten my belt and pull my pants down at the same time." 'Pulling one's pants down' means 'getting screwed', which everyone in Spain is indignant about these days. But not without humour, evidently.
