Kick In The Ash


A little Friday comic relief … or more than that?

Some Q’s:

Is the (remarkable) tone here a way to rip on (or, even send a signal to) second- and third-world players that refuse to play along with the corporate/globalization model?  (…Or, is a cigar just a cigar?)

Any thoughts on the specific elements and composition — the label, the height, the angle, the smoke…?

Could you just fantasize what Bush would deserve?
