IS MCDONALD'S PINK SLIME LIKE TODAY'S BROADWAY MUSICAL?
In what way is
McDonald's Pink Slime, a mixture of nauseating ingredients from
the slaughterhouse floor, similar to the super-slick Broadway
musical of today?
They are the
same, both in the end product and the process that creates them:
both are revolting to anyone who knows anything about food or
1. Pink Slime
is made from the remnants of the animal killing process.
Musicals are made from worn, overused, shared ideas that pop
into the heads of the Broadway power elite. Originality is never
an issue with these people, because they don't know what it is.
2. Pink Slime
is made palatable because huge companies sneak it into your food
without your knowledge.
Musicals are made palatable by huge companies who insert TV and
Movie stars into roles tailor-made to their mediocrity. You
wouldn't eat it otherwise.
3. Pink Slime
is used to dilute the cost of the meat product.
Musicals are diluted by weak, inexpensive corporate talent that
won't talk back to the money people. It's cheaper to hire a
yes-man than a genius who stands their ground. Unless it's a
famous genius, in which case any old slop they write will sell.
4. Pink Slime
is avidly if unknowingly consumed by children in their Big Macs.
Musicals are dumbed down so that even a child can understand it.
In fact, only a child could understand it.
5. Pink Slime
is a symbol of corporate disrespect for your body.
Musicals are a symbol of the contempt the power elite has for
your brain. They think you're too stupid to comprehend real
musical art, so they feel secure giving you the crummiest candy they can find.
And they make huge profits with this trash. The actual process
of developing and nurturing composers and authors has been
destroyed by their greed and that of the record companies. They
assume you won't know the difference between Las Vegas trash and
Broadway trash, and they're right.
Welcome to the
New Broadway, the sewer of American "culture."
