As you may recall, several weeks ago I made an awesometacularific journey out to the crappy (read: West) coast of our fine country to visit some dear chums and get shlonkered with them on rum for a week. Great times. And one of the little adventures within that adventure that I…ventured on was a trip to Disneyland. Second time ever, first time since I was about five. And while it was fun (read: I was drunk), I noticed a few warning signs that only a paranoid sci-fi nerd like me could grasp. That under the veneer of tasty sugar and glorious capitalism, there were swirling eddies and undercurrents of darkness. So I made a chart. Have fun!

So yeah, dystopia’s all around. Life is crap, Mickey’s boot stamping on your face forever, I chose Rapture, etc. But, if it makes you feel any better, it is a pretty sweet hat.
