there are two different kinds of super bowls

Tomorrow afternoon millions of Americans will be watching million dollar commercials that glorify Doritos and Budweiser and Big Macs. They will be lounging in their leather La-Z-Boys with their nachos resting comfortably on their stomach. And this is acceptable. This mass numbing of America is more than acceptable, it is encouraged. It is funded. It is calculated. It is controlled. But what can't be controlled is unwelcomed, rejected, and it won't do. It won't do to have millions of angelheaded hipsters cowering in unshaven rooms. How can a capitalist society run when people are allowed to "(bare) their brains to Heaven"? It can't. Enjoy your nachos, America.
