Desperate is more like it... Advertising infiltrating every inch of our lives makes for a very inauthentic world.

Can't stop laughing.

By the way, I just realized that everyone of the essays in Michael Bierut's book is typed in a different font face! Wondering if those type faces represents the feels he has on each subjects of the essays.
