Have a brain mint, man
Have a brain mint, man

“D’oh!!!” I thought to myself as I felt the car bump the curb and take away this chance for obtaining my drivers license. Today was the second time in a row that I failed the damn test, and I’m really starting to believe that I have the heart of a walker and the feet of the trudging….yeah, I’m telling myself. I was a walker back in elementary school, I take the commuter-rail big kid bus to school now, um, lets just see how I can console myself about the weekends though, man. It aint a pretty sight asking my mommy for rides.

The worst thing was when the trooper made my “sponser” drive us back to the RMV. My brain is so tapped. It started playing all these depressing violin songs, revvin me up to cry. I disappeared into the backseat…

But now lets talk about whos really bout to get spanked….spanked by the law. Dick Cheney. (First of all, Dick is just about the dumbest name you can give a human being. Ever know a girl named Twatilda?) I got my information about Cheneys financial investment in oil companies, which I toldya bout 2 weeks ago, from a kinda paranoid old man. But I love the smoke, too and right now the front pages of the most recent Globes are all about validation… The congressional investigators are going to take Dick to court because he was Enron’s little bitch for over a year, and they’ve been having private meetings about how to suck the wealth outta the world and into

their mutual bizniz’s.

Were the nation, right? Then it should be no surprise that we’ve got the biggest scandal, cuz if you think about it, there’s no good reason for our country to be this rich. We dont deserve our vast fortune any more than Africa deserves to starve and bleed to death. No derr. Wed never’ve become such a “great” nation if it weren’t for all the slave labor that was used for caucasion profit. But you knew that. We still depend on corruption, as you will see when it is revealed to the public just how far down Enrons pants Cheney got. Talk about private business…but think about it, isnt the Vice-Presidency a public office? Cheney is an oil slut.

Let me finish up by saying that the suckiest commercial during the Superbowl was the “Anti-terrorism” campaign against drugs. Fuck that. Screw those governmental guilt trips. I betcha like 20 kids on acid tried to kill themselves when those commercials came on, but the rest of us just laughed our assesoff. What was the first commercial afer the kickoff???? It was a Budweiser commercial. The robot one, with “Mini-fridge”. Everyone qatching the Superbowl was shitfaced. That’s a wicked drug, man. Besides, if the government would give in and LEGALIZE, we could be their bitch taxpayers, just like we are for the most moronic drug of all, which is alcohol. It really is the most dangerous drug, the most abused…and it does nothing to “expand my horizan” man. I think that the government accepts the use of alcohol because it dumbs down the population. I think that’s “terror”ble.
