Oh god! Somebody *needs* to set up a flash mob of "protesters" to chant that somewhere.

And Heinlein had them in one (or more) of his Juveniles back in the early 50s!

Space Cadet (1948!!!)
Matt dug a candy bar out of his pouch, split it and gave half to Jarman, who accepted it gratefully. "You're a pal, Matt, I've been living on my own fat ever since breakfast— and that's risky. Say, your telephone is sounding."

"Oh!" Matt fumbled in his pouch and got out his phone. "Hello?"

"That you, son?" came his father's voice.
[snip of short conversation]

"Sure, sure, Dad," Matt broke in. "I'll have to sign off—I'm in a crowd. Good-by. Thanks for calling."

"Good-by, son. Good luck."

Tex Jarman looked at him understandingly. "Your folks always worry, don't they? I fooled mine—packed my phone in my bag."

He clucked and they started off. A few hundred yards further on Lazy shied again, not from a snake this time but from an unexpected noise. Don pulled him in and spoke severely. "You bird-brained butterball! When are you going to learn not to jump when the telephone rings?"

Lazy twitched his shoulder muscles and snorted. Don reached for the pommel, removed the phone, and answered.

"Mobile 6-J-233309, Don Harvey speaking."
"Mr. Reeves, Don," came back the voice of - the headmaster of
Ranchito Alegre. "Where are you?"

"Headed up Peddler's Grave Mesa, sir."
