I’m pretty sure this new piece speaks for itself, but I’m of a chatty disposition.
While looking for a vintage soap ad to spoof for Sallow Tallow Soap, I happened upon a particularly offensive example of the odious advertising of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was sadly, yet serendipitously a perfect fit for this 21st century situation.
Even though I firmly believe that we live in a time of way too many special snowflakes, and that as much as we might want to, we cannot (and should not) punish today for yesterday’s wrongs, I almost hesitate to post the original; it serves no purpose of value beyond being a convenient reminder that history not only repeats itself, but sometimes just lays low like a toxic mold under the floorboards – doing real harm, but not terribly dangerous until it’s exposed and multiplies on a current of hot air.
Still, we can’t hide the sins of the past, or the present.
Click, click, snip, snip.
Stew and hopefully stir.
There may be a Mercurial Motive short video on the way as well. I’m undecided on how much more energy I’m willing to put into this particular pile of corrupt political absurdity. Purging can be cathartic, but so can swallowing hard and moving on.
Thanks for stopping by.
