Ask Mister Helpful

Question:

Dear Mister Helpful,

I love to eat at McDonald’s because it is cool and the food is really really good. But every time I eat there I feel sick about 45 minutes later. What should I do?

Answer:

Dear Nauseous,

Try eating 45 minutes earlier.

I’m lovin’ it,

Mr. H.

and what about the violence

Keep the masses occupied
materially oriented.
Feed them “must see”
“must play” content.

Imply that jobs
are supposed to suck.
Escape through consumption!

Normalize excessive living
as life’s goal.
Make it unpatriotic (or uncool)
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.

encased in a shared
halo of air

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

common people
want peace
and harmony

those who divide us
are manipulators
and misfits
power brokers
and fist lovers

how do we cope?
drugs and tv
earning and spending

through escape
we join them

someday
capitalism
will implode
into its own
selfishness

and the world
can once again
be humanscale.

The marketing
geekdom

inch of earth and sky
is covered
with corporate logos
like a NAS CAR:
