…Subservient chicken:

More sexual innuendo and excessive sodium.

Shilling for the new “Chicken Fries” is a band called “Coq Roq” a faux metal outfit that is basically a variation on the “Josie and the Pussycats” idea, although whether or not they solve mysteries has yet to be seen.

From their web site, here are the lyrics to “Cross the Road” one of the four available songs:

FIRST I SMELL IT, THEN I HEAR YOUR VOICE
SHOULD HAVE RUN WHEN I HAD THE CHOICE
I CAN SEE YOU RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET
STANDING STEADY SO MY EYES CAN EAT

RAW DESIRE IS THE FIRE I FEED
CHICKEN FRIES ARE WHAT I NEED
SEE YOU STANDING LIKE A BK TREAT
LONG AND LEAN AND JUST OUT OF REACH

CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE

HERE I COME, A HEAT-SEEKING missile
BREAKING OUT WITH A BURNING SIZZLE
I WALK THE WALK, I TALK THE TALK
YOU’LL BE MINE bawk bawk, bagawwwkkk!

FIRST I SMELL IT, THEN I HEAR YOUR VOICE
SHOULD HAVE RUN WHEN I HAD THE CHOICE
I CAN SEE YOU RIGHT ACROSS THE WALK
AND YOU’RE SCREAMING bawk bawk, bagawwwkkk!

CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD.
CROSS THE ROAD. THE ROAD. THE ROAD

Am I alone in detecting a cruising subtext here? And what about the campaign’s more radical notion of shifting people’s identification of chicken from breast to cock?

I guess the character generator has been updated…

I should have included the classroom background but it was just too much.

Yesterday I finished reading Gary Indiana’s The Schwarzenegger Syndrome: Politics and Celebrity in the Age of Contempt. And began Karla Jay’s Tales of the Lavender Menace: A Memoir of Liberation

The Indiana book is bilious and excellent – I’ll be quoting a couple of things from it in future posts. While it is an examination of AS’s gubenatorial campaign, it is also about the current calamatous state of Americal political culture, news reporting and corporate strong arming. all of which played a part in both the Gray Davis recall and Arnold’s ascension.

Fans of dispassionate argument will not be happy with this book: hyperbole abounds, which is in part the point, since much of what passes for “balanced discussion” these days is really an elaborate shell game to keep people from noticing the real issue at stake: how soul-sucking our society has become. I’m very happy that Indiana was willing to go all Sex Pistols on the crap-meisters in power. He’s never going to be offered any sort of typical pundit job, so he has nothing to lose by really attacking those custodians of access and exposure.

I turned to the Jay as a way of filling in some history that I’m a little shakey on, and also to remind myself that there have been times when people were able to take action against a social system that attacked the validity of their lives. I’m only a couple of chapters into it, but the image of the members of WITCH (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell) dressing as sorceresses and hexing the New York Stock Exchange on Halloween in 1968 is already doing my heart good.
