The Official National Bullshit Story

"America is a great country, but it's a strange culture. This has got to be the only country in the world that could ever come up with a disease like bulimia; it's gotta be the only country in the world where some people have no food at all, and other people eat a nourishing meal and puke it up intentionally.

This is a country where tobacco kills over four hundred thousand people a year, so they ban artificial sweeteners! Because a rat died! You know what I mean? This is a place where gun store owners are given a list of stolen credit cards, but not a list of criminals and maniacs! And now, they're thinking about banning toy guns - and they're gonna keep the fucking real ones!

America's leading industry, America's most profitable business, is still the manufacture, packaging, distribution and marketing of bullshit. High-quality, grade-A, prime-cut, pure, American bullshit.

And the sad part is, that most people seem to have been indoctrinated to believe that bullshit only comes from certain places, certain sources: advertising, politics, salesmen – not true. Bullshit is everywhere. Bullshit is rampant. Bullshit is truly the American soundtrack."

So, I've decided to listen to George and turn off my cell phone, make my own pancakes, rub my own balls, and rock the boat whenever I hear the soundtrack being played.
