Rats and Icons

I just heard Hershey's Chocolate describes the American Public as rats. In a serious, straight face, we're a company conversation on the News. After bombings, Iraq, London, not mentioning the Prime Minister and Donald Rumsfield, the American News had a person stand up and say, "Chocolate consumers in America are like rats." Then, for the length of your average news story, the actions of Americans buying and consuming limited edition chocolate was compared to that of a rat and this was, somehow, not meant to convey a sense that you weren't all being continually being fucked in the ass without lubricant or love.

In other news, I made some icons. Obviously, I need to make a new one that says Fucked In The Ass Without Lubricant Or Love.

they're playing it a lot on sky news. it was the author of the book "candy freak" who said that rat comparison quote. his name, i forgot but i'm sure you can find it on google or amazon.

didn't you love how they ran with the rat comparison for the whole thing, though? even the narrator said it.

I would have to beg to take a Fucked in the Ass Without Lubricant or Love icon. After the letter I got back from "my" congressman yesterday, it would be tres apropos.

One of my friend's sent me Candyfreak but I haven't read it yet.

Beyond my area of expertise, I am afraid. I exhausted myself merely learning to re-size jpeg files. :-D
