A unionized public employee, a teabagger, and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table is a plate of one dozen cookies. The CEO takes 11 cookies, then turns to the teabagger and says, “Look out for that union guy— he wants a piece of your cookie.
“People are taking the piss out of you everyday.
They butt into your life,
take a cheap shot at you
and then disappear.
They leer at you from tall buildings
and make you feel small.
They make flippant comments from buses
that imply you’re not sexy enough
and that all the fun is happening somewhere else.
They are on TV
making your girlfriend feel inadequate.
They have access
to the most sophisticated technology
the world has ever seen
and they bully you with it.
They are The Advertisers
and they are laughing at you.”—
