too many ironies in the fire

As my total Amazon affiliate revenues for the current quarter now stand at $12.36, I think you'll agree that I've already been more than adequately remunerated for the time and effort it takes to produce this blog. No offense intended, but I think it must be clear to most of you by now: I'm only in it for the money.

Which is why I started The Official Mystic Bourgeoisie Bookstore.

Yes, but -- as they say in those late-nite teevee ads -- that's not all. In addition to the fabulous loot I'm raking in, this bookstore setup has enabled me to create deliciously ironic juxtapositions, such as the one you see pictured immediately below...

For those new to this site, the idea here is not that you should go off and buy that book. No, no. The idea is to savor the subtle cognitive dissonance produced (in the true aficionado) by seeing "Mystic Bourgeoisie" and "Kundalini Yoga" in such close proximity. An acquired taste, to be sure -- but one that, once grasped in its true essence, easily eclipses escargot. Here, try another...

Now you're getting the hang of it. Hard to describe, sure, but after the initial flash, if you close your eyes and concentrate, it sort of tastes like chicken. Doesn't it? Try this one and see what you think.

No? More like a Blackened Gila Monster Caesar Salad you say? Really? OK, well, so our taste in ironic juxtapositions may differ somewhat. But hey, play around with it. Create your own. For instance, if you're not yet fully convinced you are God, you might want to explore further...

And so on.
