Gluttony, Groucho:1, 6006 YD

This is a business card which I have been leaving all around downtown Toronto for most of the month of Chico . . . nothing else, no website, no other information . . . So if you found one, I put it there.

The idea behind it was based on the concept of Discordian Ethics put forward by Vincent Verthaine, of the Church of Eris . . . that being -in a nutshell- that random confusion, if paid attention to, can stimulate the mind in ways it isn’t normally stimulated, which can lead to all sorts of wonderful ideas.

Of course, it’s also actually true . . . John Dillinger did indeed die for your sins.

“Stranger stop and wish me well, Just say a prayer for my soul in hell. I was a good fellow, most people said, Betrayed by a woman dressed all in red”

From Dillinger To Bugs In 5 Easy Steps

March 24, 2006

1) On July 22, 1934 John Dillinger and friend visit the Biograph Theater in Chicago to see the film “Manhattan Melodrama” starring Clark Gable and Mirna Loy.

2) On leaving the theatre, Dillinger is promptly filled with holes by Federal Agents.

3) Due to the publicity showered on “Manhattan Melodrama” following Dillinger’s death Clark Gable and Mirna Loy are thrust into super stardom.

4) Cashing in on his new success, Clark Gable quickly stars in “It Happened One Night” where his fast-talking character munches on carrots. In addition, a character in this same movie is named “Bugs Dooley”

5) Spoofing on Clark Gable’s “It Happened One Night” character, a fast-talking, carrot-munching cartoon rabbit, Bugs Bunny, is created.


do you STILL believe in coincidence?
