Shiny Happy People Holding Shit


Awesome pick from the Culture Ghost which I found on Michael Greenwell's post about faked rare-animal photos in China.

Kinda sums up what happens, naturally, to everyday normal peops when they let their lives and life-styles be determined by Salesmen.

  2. Oh yah! Alas you're way too right on that. And the Art of the Scam is just about down to a Science w/ the way Advertising has evolved over the last 50 years. Blech! eh.

  5. Michael,
    You are right - all us small people are puppets for salespeople, advertisers, and market analysts. They tell us the next move to make.

    I was trying to decide what to eat for breakfast and decided on Cheerios. They already knew that.

  6. I dig it, Eddie. I do try to mix it up and use restraint (HA!) but even the puds from which I bought my laptop just increased my freakin' credit limit to $2500... DAMN! I've got to leave that ALONE.

    Wish me luck, eh.

  8. Welcome back, MB! Missed you and your quirky, wise take on people and the world at large.

    I read the story on the faked endangered animal photos, and then reread your comments. And I thought, hmmmm... this could also be applied to the entire McCain campaign, and the last 7 years of Commander Codpiece and his vicious Orcs. They sold us a true line of shite and McCain is working hard to sell us some more. I wonder if we'll buy it again?

    ... sigh ...

  10. And just in time for Christmas!! How can we forget that holiday, which now starts in mid-October right before Halloween? Give it 5 years at this rate, and the stores will be decked out for xmas by Labor Day. Ugh.
