WARNING: Click here to watch video
The song running through my head when picturing this video was “Unmarked Helicopters”. Initially, I remembered this as an XTC song (Wrong! That was Helicopter on Drums and Wires). The actual song is part of the X-Files soundtrack that also includes the marvellous Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds with Red Right Hand.
Enough. This very short video features two in our series of WARNINGS tee’s.
The first comes from Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. As readers may recall, ICE 9 was developed by the military to freeze swamps and help GI’s to conquer swampy countries. The downside was that once one water molecule freezes, the adjacent one freezes…and so on…and so on…until the whole planet and the 90 something percent water in our bodies also freezes. Hence our WARNING to dry clean only!
Our second WARNING comes from Dr. Strangelove’s General Jack D. Ripper and his obsession with protecting Americans’ precious bodily fluids.
