Mouth washing air, I’m stuck at a stand still. Like trying to make a U-turn on the sidewalk in a 2-ton dump truck. I catch blurry portions of peeling billboards as the bus crosses into unfamiliar territory. Advertising is a funny thing. The art of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it. It’s so cliché, but it works so well. You can’t tell me you don’t wanna make a stop at Burger King after seeing one of their, like, twenty minute whopper commercials. The King’s so cool, too. You can’t deny that shit. You want to, but you can’t.
How awesome would it be to show up at yer senior prom dressed like the King?
“Dude, where’s yer tux?”
“Dude, I’m the King.”
They should make a commercial where the King meets a queen. But to make it interesting, the queen should be black. And be the McDonald’s mascot. Then they’d have this huge love affair and nobody would like it, cuz they’re rivals of course. But it’d be all over the news, front page on all the newspapers. One of those concepts where if you try ignoring it, it just makes it worse. But then like all the overly publicized relationships, their love would fade and eventually die. Left only to be described in ‘remember whens’ and verbs of the past tense.
“I loved you, King. Why didn’t you ever love me back?”
“I did love you. I loved yerrrrrr….fries?”
“Eat crown, asshole.”
