Superbowl Sunday really is the most American of holidays, isn’t it? It’s about being with friends, television, advertising, consuming large amounts of fat, salt and alcohol, and sitting on the couch watching other people do things instead of actually doing anything yourself. Shit, if you threw in some American flags, guns, tits & ass, and a message that we are better than all the other people of the world, you’d have a perfect map of the American psyche.

Well, I guess you’d have to work Jesus in there somehow too.

  1. Thought the flag/Jesus were synonymous by now.

  3. We tried the tits thing last year. Didn’t go over too well.

  4. You said it, Jake. Heard a wonderful ‘analysis’ (emphasis on ‘anal’) of the SB commercials this morning on National Petroleum Radio. They played little snippets from ads for Budweiser, godaddy.com, Lay’s potato chips and others. Nice use of the ‘public’ airways: more free plugs for already overbloated corporations. But that wasn’t the biggest outrage. The woman who was critiquing the spots never mentioned a single time how every single woman in every single commercial was featured as either a sexpot/piece of meat or a raving bee-otch. The portrayals of the women were quite stunning in their anachronistic, mysogynist patriarchal bent, but the fact that it didn’t even warrant a MENTION from her means that she either didn’t notice or thinks it’s just fine. So happy that the 50s are back. Wow.

  5. The sanitized halftime show was like walking into the biggest open air revival tent of all time. How many freaking gospel choirs and military honor guards were there for the national anthem? Apparently, not only is Jesus a football fan, but he’s a Master Sargeant in the Corps as well. Oh, and he hates Spongebob and all those other ‘evolution’ sinners, who won’t support a war which kills thousands of other ‘raghead’ sinners. Oh well; at least the kids won’t be warped by the sight of a bare breast; not when freedom’s on the march.
