The Science of Sarcasm
Dying to laugh? An easy quick-fix is the scribble-collages of artist David Fullarton. Witty, candid, and sometimes crude, his drawings expound little details about modern society, like superfluous facebook friendships and i-phone addictions, using a lot of America's comedic backbone - sarcasm....(and a lil bit of nihilism.)
PSST You gotta read carefully to appreciate the full science of his sarcasm...

UPDATING YOUR STATUS
THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME
Na-na-na-na-na-ah-ah, California sunlight
Sweet Calcutta rain
The song remains the sa-ee-a-ee-a-ee-ee-eh-ah-a-a-ame

Are you, now, are you, now
Are you, are you-you, now, are you-you, now, ooh-wee
It's A Man's Man's Man's World
Man thinks about a little baby girls and a baby boys
Man makes them happy 'cause man makes them toys
And after man has made everything, everything he can
You know that man makes money to buy from other man
