America Gets The Runs

The readers who submitted this photo writes,

These Color Runs and Taco Runs and Warrior Runs always make me sick. Look at this shit, $69.99 (funny, right?) and you get two whole tacos and a beer (oh and Mariachi music). What a bargain. What a waste of time. It’s like a religion for these shitheads though.

The Run For [X] phenomenon is social connectedness LARPing by an over-diversified people who no longer feel connected to anything but product brands. Fake Community Spirit is the best way to describe these top-down manufactured events.

Oh, and Cinco de Gayo has no place in America. It has to go back.

The Dindugeld

Pay the Dindu, or suffer the consequences.

It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
  To call upon a neighbour and to say: --
"We invaded you last night--we are quite prepared to fight,
  Unless you pay us cash to go away."

And that is called asking for Dindu-geld,
  And the people who ask it will soothe
That you've only to pay 'em the Dindu-geld
  And then you'll get rid of the Dindu!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
  To puff and look important and to say: --
"Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
  We will therefore pay you cash to go away."

And that is called paying the Dindu-geld;
  But we've proved it through and through,
That if once you have paid him the Dindu-geld
  You never get rid of the Dindu.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
  For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
  You will find it better policy to say: --

"We never pay any-one Dindu-geld,
  No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
  And the nation that pays it is lost!"
