Slavery, if nothing else, produced industry grade unawareness.It was a great thing for some, continues to this day. Myself, I was just happy I got free chew after some smartass loaded some toilet paper into the hoppers, and resulted in me getting ass-paperin my chew one time.
But when I wrote to Beechnut, and told them my chew was full of paper wads–they did the right thing, and sent me an entire carton of free Beechnut chew! You go tell me that the AMerican Dream is broken, and I will tell the whole world about my chew!
I was completely taken in. I felt like the scion of a chew family in that minute!
I imagined that suddenly, the world had found me valuable, available, and coveted my connection to a community! They sent me that chew FOR FREE!
I seem to recall ten clean, sealed packets, each one delicious and free, boxed in a wholesale box. It made me want to chew more!
And so, this is how I learned capitalism., one chew at a time.
I still follow those chew instructions, though I don’t chew anymore, I just smoke now.
