Liberty. Bubble Gum. And the Pursuit of Happiness.
In The Price Is Right, 3 bucks off makes you the biggest loser ever.
At the grocery store, .30 short makes you the same thing.
The only way to win is at the gumball machine....
And even that will cost you a quarter. But anyone can find a quarter or find five aluminum cans. Once you find your five cans, just take a ten mile walk to the nearest recycling center, walk ten miles back to the gumball machine at the grocery store. At that point, you may just want to pocket your well earned quarter, because you almost have enough for that loaf of bread you were thirty cents short of. And gum? Well, you can peel a pink wad off the nearest parking lot. But I don't suspect that has the same winning feeling. In fact, that puts us back in loooser city. You were thirty cents short for a loaf of bread at the grocery store and were going to blow a quarter to feel like a winner. At least you weren't going to bomb a country to be in an elitist club and feel important. At the same time, who is responsible for voting or perhaps, not voting these politicians into office? Now, that's the jawbreaker.
