Statement : EAT BABY EAT
Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish, how many pieces do you wish? Eight. Eight? Take the whole fuckin’ bowl. You’re really gonna leave some for someone else to have, to hold, to gloat and blow with? Don’t worry about anyone else, you’ve gotta eat, sleep, and blow your way to the top. No matter who you are you are entitled to any and everything on this planet, and the more of it you can find the better you are. Just make sure its’ something of little or no actual value and something that everyone wants. So I’m gonna have it my way, cuz everyones got a little Captain in ’em. This is where a kid can be a kid, can you hear me now? Greed is the breakfast of champions so obey your thirst for the undying need of ultimate artificial satisfaction. Just do it. There’s no need to worry about repercussions, they may sting for a minute but hey, they undoubtedly taste great and are certainly less filling. Let your fingers do the walking and your wallet do the talking. The happiest place on earth isn’t with your family, it’s miles away from ordinary. Hungry? Why wait then, take a bite outta time and throw your kid a cell phone. This is your time to shine. Narcissism does a body good. Diamonds may be forever, but I’m gonna live forever. So when life hands you lemons make lemonade; just be sure to have the right marketing skills to underhand the public and triple your estimated gross profit. In the end, I don’t wanna grow up cause baby if I did, I wouldn’t be an Amer-i-can kid. Eat baby eat.
