What a time to be alive!

Everybody driving SUV’s, everybody watching DVD’s, paying late fees, saving the trees.

We’ve got iTunes, iMacs, and iPods. We’ve got the World Wide Web. We’ve got blogs. We’ve got clods writing blogs. We’ve got teacup-sized dogs. We’ve got blogs about cats ’n’ dogs.

We’ve got Democracy in Iraq. We’ve got plumber’s crack.

We’ve got Sting and nipple rings. We’ve got bathtub gin and Olsen twins!

We’re living in the twenty-first century! That’s a whole different century than last century. We have gangsta rap. We have This Blog Is Full Of Crap!

What a time to be alive!

If you’re alive, that is. Hurricanes! Airplanes! We’ve got tsunami! We’ve got Toonami... and Tommy!

Tommy Hilfiger! Thomas the Tank Engine!

We’ve got tsunamis and movies about zombies.

Today it’s possible to see a movie about zombies and read a blog about tsunamis while wearing your Tommys. Today you can buy an SUV – perhaps a Humvee – see?

2005! What a time to be alive!

(apologies to Russell Baker)
