Manual labor? Wall Street? Science shit? President ing? The heck is that about? I dunno seems like shit But then you begin to think about the money All those times you wanted to buy something but you didn’t have money to spend then you think when I grow up and get a job I’ll buy a ton of these Of course now I’d have no use for a ton of elmo mugs fucking Sesame Street but maybe I can vary it with some big birds and cookie monsters Now that wouldn’t seem so bad S
