Tentacled Youth


I have somehow lived through 28 years of life and avoided hearing about blossom tea.. until now. Beautiful and tasty, the only downside is that it's expensive.

Every time I hear the song "Deutschland", by the Prinzen, I wish that the United States had a similarly popular song with an equivalent topic. The lyrics are in German, although there's an English translation available at that site. I believe that such songs both highlight and combat (through mockery) national pride, something that I think America is sorely in need of in present times. I suspect that such a work would recieve a much more through ban than the Dixie Chicks had for their criticism of BushJr. America is a country in need of harsh art, like a morbidly obese person in need of an honest mirror. America is ugly right now, and needs to change (unlike my tea, which is pretty).
