The hashtag #FlySwattingParty is a snide tribute to Joseph Campbell, who once described pornography in a conversation as "advertising intended to make uneducated consumers lust over goods designed to do them only harm,” which reminds me of a Zappa lyric from the Bongo Fury album about the bicentennial being an excuse for #Capitalist scumbags to sell you stuff you maybe ought not to buy.
Campbell also told a tale about meeting a Zen master who dispatched a bothersome insect with a quick movement of his non-clapping hand before smiling and saying: “Come back in a more acceptable form."
The #PundyRaunch hashtag (as well as the title of this post) grew out of the nimrod occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge by members of the worst Bundy family in the United States, who were heartily upset when their call for snacks was met with boxes of dildos & toys from Archie McPhee.
As my favorite childhood leper used to say: “Hug them if they can’t take a joke."
