Sunday Popourri: Gotta Start Somewhere

It has come to my attention that the human beings on this planet have become nothing other than a giant herd of sheep.  Let us not be that.  Let's start migrating ourselves away from the marketing ploys of Madison Avenue.  Can we just start with you fine folks that read the blog?  Whaddya say?  Turn off the TV for a couple of hours everyday?  Learn the difference between a want and a need?  Let an old lady get in front of you in line?  Gotta Start Somewhere.

How about never choose to do something just because it's popular?  I mean, look how much money the film "Armageddon" made.  Do we really want to live in a world where a piece of junk like that is rewarded? Let's raise the bar a wee bit eh?  American Idol?  You watch that?  WTF?  Other suggestions for taking a step away from sheep-dom; lobby your congressman to make any and all advertising aimed at children illegal.  Gotta Start Somewhere.

That shit is insidious y'all.  Also while you've got their ear, tell them (from me) that this whole idea of running around the world killing brown people to secure natural resources and point out how big and tough you are is kinda getting old.  534,000,000,000 (that's billion) spent for "Defense" in 2010.  Man, I'm glad we're only "defending" ourselves.  Heaven knows what it would cost us should we decide to get offensive. Gotta Start Somewhere.

Ok then, now I've gotten my egalitarian prosthelytizingoutta of the way.  Enjoy the vids.  Gotta start somewhere ...

The End.

I was gonna brush this post off and then you put up a Trailer Park Boys video. But you lose points for it not being a Bubbles one. :P

I prefer Ricky's self-smarted video. It cracks me up every time.

All those videos were chosen for their relevance (in one way or another) to the message of the post. And all the Bubbles compilations kinda sucked.

And don't meddle with the primal forces of D's nature.
