Common Stock

From Album 5

What really struck me about this revelation of what the one percenters do in their leisure time was…how ordinary and even common they are. Nothing you wouldn’t see at a workplace party or even your average business convention: a few tasteless jokes, cover songs with rearranged lyrics, (to their credit, at least they weren’t MC Rove and Dancing Dave Redux), some fraternity-type hazing. About all that’s unusual about these people is…their psychotic insistence that their ever-more hoggish share of the economic pie is somehow deserved.

One thought on “Common Stock

    It’s like a “flash mob” to a song that was popular 15 years ago, led by the CEO in sunglasses. I had a helljob last year in an uber-Office Space type office and they did this sort of thing and it was so fucking cringeworthy, but at least it could be excused on the basis of being a small company in the sticks. I would expect more creativity from rich firms like these, really.
    Not that the unfunny-ness of the jokes is the most offensive part of this, but REALLY, pay for better event planning, fuckers.
