One of the most hilarious things I saw on Twitter was this: Thio Su Mien went up to tell the crowd at the AWARE EOGM why she considered herself a feminist mentor. To support her claim, she held up an AWARE book published in 2007, declaring to everyone that she was 'charmed' to be mentioned 'on page 73'.
This is how you play the game.
1) Pick up a book/s you're currently reading.
2) Go to page 73.
3) Look for a sentence/s, and replace a word/s with 'Thio Su Mien'. The more random the better.
4) Pass your TSM love around to your friends.
Here are a dozen of my finds:

8) "There comes a point when Thio Su Mien's many declarations of women's rights become less of a battle cry and more an acute pain, and you begin to wonder how any man can put up with her, let alone live with her."

9) "If Thio Su Mien harms living beings
She cannot be considered noble
Only by exercising harmlessness towards living beings
Can one be called noble."

10) "Assimilated by Thio Su Mien to pure passivity (what is more inert and more dispossessed than an object expelled in jet-form?), she reintegrates the ritual nevertheless, thanks to the myth of a fictitious, celestial race, which is said to derive its peculiarities from its ascetic life, and which effects a kind of anthropological compromise beween humans and Martians."
'The Jet Man' in 'Mythologies', by Roland Barthes, pg. 73
