The Garbage Man Can

Day 77. 252 pages, 126,486 words.

Sadly I couldn’t find a better-quality version of this video, but I was struck by how eerily prescient The Simpsons has always been when it comes to things like politics.

I’ll let you decide which politicians[1] are represented in this clip. And how close to reality that entire episode is actually going to run, when the time comes.

[1] U.S. politicians, of course. Like any other sort get Internet air-time.

Ugh. Screw this week, I’m out.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Well, Homer is promising a lot more social services, so clearly he represents Bernie Sanders! #triggered
