Diet Coke w/vitamins & minerals, $5 for 17 hrs. of gore, and genuine chocolate flavoring...
in the category of "things I saw on the shelf at the discount center today when I was shopping." Now let's just take a totally nutrionally void product and try to turn it in to a healthy drink. How does one do that? Easy peasy dilute multivitamins in it.

Now every teenager needs access to a cheap DVD with 17 hours of slasher movies on it. We don't have enough horror in the world but we need to manufacture it and market it cheaply.

Now my quest for a good chocolate topping for my ice cream was assaulted by the idea that I somehow need to reconcile the idea of a genuine chocolate syrup to notion that it contains genuine chocolate flavoring. Where'd the genuine chocolate go?

Oh, and let me note, that the cereal box got smaller and more pricey. Toilet paper rolls continue to get smaller in size (the mega roll is now the size of the old regular) and pretty soon you will need a signature loan to buy a package of 4. Come to think of it, the toilet paper and the 17 hrs of gore were almost priced the same.

Don't know the value of this in regard to GD, but these items struck me as mute testimonies to our cultural and economic values.

1. I don't understand these countless teen slasher movies
Is that all hollywood can think of to do with attractive people? Chop them, burn them, slash them, etc. In my day teen movies had lots of gratuitous nudity and sex and we liked it that way.

3. Remember how the reich wing lost their friggin minds over "Porky's"?
It was going to be the end of civilization! And yet not a peep about the most violent, disgusting murder porn.

Sex bad. Graphic murder good.

6. That's gotta be a toss-up
but usually, it's after sex or during sex that the teenagers get killed.

So that's okay. They can say "See? Sex kills."

2. Better stock up on toilet paper at any price.
When people run out of Dollars to wipe their asses with, the real thing will become currency.
