What isn’t a Trick?(When Art meets Artifice head on)

October 5, 2007

DumbyouthThey try to get you to smoke,with tricks.They try to get you NOT to smoke,with tricks.They try to get you to eat Trix,with tricks, and a rabbit trick at that.Officer there is only poop under my hat,and it’s not even mine!Persuade they will,Yoda, I talk like, soda they encroach upon your ‘thirst’ with Dogmatic maxims.I guess they figure if gazillions of folks over the scant 2000 years our flat world has been, spinning??? we can believe in our Superfriends; the gods, we’ll of course oblige to obeying our tangible thirsts like a Motherfaker.So whether it’s the Message or the Counter-Message it’s all a dichotomous rut, a ruse to empty one pocket into another.But rest tonight young Scully for the Truth is still out there(resting it’s corpulent laurels in a pit of re-fried Truthiness).Ahhhhh the LIfe.

Article inspired by this below.(About those Truth/Non smoking ads)

“Teens today are generally suspicious of adults,” said Jenny Lee, a 17-year-old senior at Leon High School in Tallahassee who was a member of the student committee that chose Crispin to handle the state’s anti-smoking ad campaign. “If there was some middle-aged guy telling us not to smoke, I would probably flip the channel.” Lee added it was important the ads portray all kinds of students, even those most adults and parents would have a hard time identifying with. “We’ve got a guy with [dreadlocks] in these commercials,” Lee said. “These aren’t your clean-cut, Polo-wearing kids.”
