Several International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts (IATSE) members and Teamsters picketed outside the Screen Actors Guild's Wilshire Boulevard offices this afternoon, hoping to urge the actors union to quit stalling on contract talks and get back to work. But some of SAG's own got out their own posterboard and sharpies and protested right back, telling them to "Butt out" and let SAG fight for their rights and settle their own battle with studios and producers.

Confusing? Perhaps. Contentious? Likely. Another crazy day in Los Angeles? Definitely.
