Every Team Needs a Mascot

January 29, 2015



Just pretend you are in the advertising industry...
and... let's just say that there was a trend in business... a change across the board... corporations were downsizing... firing the old highly-paid experienced workers... hiring the young, cheap, eager ones... turning regular staff into on-site managers... firing the on-site managers... bankrupting retirement accounts... breaking up worker unions... reducing wages... eliminating benefits... straining the work environment and the workforce to its limits...

Just pretend that you had a group of clients who believed capitalism was in danger... that dynasties would cease to exist... that power and wealth would be denied to them... who really really liked the old "smoke-filled room" where deals are made... who knew that poor people would begin complaining about living standards... that middle class people could no longer afford to repair their homes or pay their bills...

Suppose those clients felt entitled to as much wealth as they could grab...
believing that the rest of society could just fend for themselves...
after all... this is capitalism, isn't it...?
Isn't capitalism all about predatory strategy... and let the best man win...?
Isn't capitalism all about money making money...? and work is for fools...?

Well... one just needs a good advertising gimmick... that's all...
to keep the underlings under control...
accepting and resigned to their fate as poor working people...
just like the good old days...

Hmmm... a cute battery bunny...? naw
A lizard...? naw...
A bald and muscular cleaning man...? naw
A soldier in a handsome uniform...? naw
A movie star fashionista...? naw
Sponge Bob...? (is this a fungi...?)

Why not go for the gusto... and go big...
Get Jesus to be your mascot...!!
And there IS no patent...! You can invent a new religion...!!
JESUS sells. Jesus sells good. Jesus sells pots and pans...
and Jesus sells capitalism... and wealth...
and if you're good... you can go to heaven, too...!!!
Someday maybe YOU can be rich...!!

You don't need healthcare... you got Jesus...!!
And the sinners will be "without"... not allowed in the pearly gates...

Jesus saves... and Jesus SELLS.
It's a new religion... MONEY...!!
Live and let die...!!!
Money isn't the root of all evil... it is the reward for being good...!!
And if you're REALLY good... you can be REALLY WEALTHY...!!!
WEALTH IS GOOD...!!! Jesus is good. Jesus is MONEY...!!

Jesus SELLS... SELLS... SELLS...
The best con men in the world... know this little trick.
Why do we keep believing them...?
