Oh, let's get rid of all our cultural icons and go with comic books and soap operas and "Survivor" and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Otherwise we might have to think too hard about why people are the way they are; we might have to confront issues like good and evil in the world, love and authoritarian control, and why young poeple should think twice before killing themselves.

Let's be contrarian
And turn barbarian
We'll throw the books out in the trash!
We'll be ethereal
Until venereal
Infections start a nasty rash.
Let's live like vultures,
Disown our cultures
And kick those bookworms out on their ears
Mob rule's appealing-o
Let's go with feeling-o
And turn the clock back several hundred years!
