WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS AMAZINGI’m blown away, wow.
isn’t this just a reworded version of the Lost Generation poem? Because it’s basically the same thing, and it sounds like a kid just googled something and rewrote it because they didn’t want to actually take time and effort out to do their own work.
Of course Lincoln got shot he was 6’4” and wearing a top hat in a theater if I was sitting behind him I’d shoot him too
It happened like 28 years ago thats plenty of time
you’re off by a few years there
I can’t believe that this is stop-motion.
i can’t believe this was made in 1993
i can’t believe it’s not butter
I believe I can fly
I can’t believe you can fly.
do you believe in life after love?
No, but do you believe in love after love?
I still can’t believe it’s not butter!
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
Also starting a small business is actually pretty pricey in and of itself?
There’s a reason why stereotypical business types say “you gotta spend money to earn money”
I can understand the sentiment behind this comic but I don’t think it’s being very understanding of other people’s economic situations.
