Visual Imagery


My good friend Catfish just sent over the above photo with the vague instructions to write about it. Catfish doesn’t have the time to give you details as he is usually fighting a giant fish to the death. To be honest, when I first looked at the photo I was confused as to what it conveyed. Then, very much like the pimp hand to a bottom bitch, the thought hit me. I see it now. The rich imagery and symbolism in this picture is too hard to ignore. Can’t you see it? This picture is obviously about the deal behind the deal.

Imagine for a second that the gentleman in the front represents all of us (if I was that man I would grow a beard, take off that shitty suit, and replace that briefcase with nun chucks). The point that this photo illustrates is that even when we think we are doing well there are shady business practices being negotiated to keep us down. Among the many;

The hotdog and hotdog bun companies’ continual conspiracy to never have any packaging that matches up numerically

The continued fame of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers (there is some sort of plan being made by Disney right now, and I won’t be surprised if this ends in genoside)

The pairs of socks that magically go missing from my dresser drawers

All these things are going on right under your nose. Wake up people! You have to realize that there is always a deal behind a deal.

Also....what really happened to the fortune of Ron Popeil - one of the greatest inventors of the 20th century.

Actually though, that guy is kind of an arrogant bitch, and most people with better tv channel choices probably don't give a shit. But the showtime oven really does keep vegetables "piping" hot, which is nice.

Well done dealers behind deals...well done. whoever you are.
