Ignorance is bliss, right?

Sometimes I think about how beautiful life is.  And then I shit on the carpet.

Plastic Surgery: It’s All the Rage

In this day and age, people are quite comfortable with the idea of surgical manipulation in order to be closer to their idea of “beautiful.” Hollywood is at the forefront, forcing upon us a veritable army of flat-faced, straight-bodied androgyny in a size two. But to many of us, it seems that they miss the mark, often in horrific ways.

When we look at the Hollywood stars of the forties, fifties and sixties, we find women who still looked like women, with natural breasts, curves and even “flaws” which made them unique and adorable. And given this sort of nostalgia, it’s more probable that the first time machine won’t be in a DeLorean, but rather in someone’s right hand…

Vanity?

If women like to be beautiful and men like women to be beautiful, then  why in the world is vanity so expensive?  If everyone wants to appear elegant, good-looking and lets not forget… fashionable, why do we as a culture have to dish out so much of our hard earned cash, effort and time? 

Do we do it for a lack of entertainment?  That can’t be it since we live in a world of cable television, high-speed internet access and Macintosh computers.

Just a few days ago I was in store especially devoted to vanity with my lady friend and the total at the register came to over $100.00.  For Pete’s sake, there are starving children worldwide. Why in the heck does it cost so much to have mud and plants to cover yourself in?

We may never know, but at least I will stand against this price gouging. I vow personally not to wear any makeup, not buy a pair of pants that cost over $30.00, nor purchase a cell phone, which costs over $40.00 with the service plan. 

Now if I just do this and walk into a crowd of people, they may look at me and think “he’s freakin’ crazy.”  If two people do this and walk into a crowd of people they may think “they’re damn dirty hippies.”  But if three people, three people do it, then they’ll know it’s a movement. 

That’s what it is friends: the Zacque-a-roo Anti-Vanity Movement.  One more time, yah know, there’s over a hundred thousand of you out there.  I mean you gotta sing loud if you wanna stop war and stuff… 

Which Squirrel is Cuter?

     Take a look at this real squirrel, and this plastic squirrel.  Which one is cuter?

Squirrel

     For me, it’s definitely the first one …

     The first one is real, and evokes an emotional response.  The second one is a piece of molded plastic, and evokes absolutely nothing.

     This same logic can be applied to Banana Nicole Smith.
