A Novelty Item That Should Not Exist

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. This product should not exist. It’s not even a novelty. It’s a sign of how sick we are, laughing at the inevitable destruction of life on earth rather than eliminating the threats we’ve created.

What the hell us wrong with us? Are we so trapped in our consumer lifestyles that the choice we are being forced to make is either Big Screen TV’s or Death? When skin begins to melt from people’s bodies, I’m sure the novelty won’t take long to wear off.

    Greetings from The Hypocalypse.

    I concur with the sentiment totally. In fact, it is ironic that the latest posting on my blog is titled, “What the Hell is Wrong With Us?” Except I was ranting about the militarization of the Rose Parade.

    As far as the keyfob, chalk it up to our good friend Capitalism. I think it’s harmless enough, but at $160 a pop I sure the fuck ain’t gonna buy one. If it was $16 I would buy one for the novelty so I could show it to my son in 15 years when he’s ready to understand these things and we could have a good chuckle together (that is, if we aren’t scrounging around for our next meal in a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland, in which case this thing would probably be a handy tool to have šŸ˜‰

    Well, we just dispatched more warships to Iran, and North Korea looks to be back on their nuke testing schedule.

    It’s ancient wisdom that, if given a weapon, someone’s bound to use it. Life on earth has been an interesting ride, every day of peace we have left is on borrowed time.
