Are You Feeling Political?

We focus-group Good Riddance

Of course they're happy. How can you be mad at the government when you're making money off them?

But they aren't making money off the government. They make money off people like you.

No, they make money off songs that make fun of the government.

So you're saying they owe the government because if the government wasn't such a mess, they wouldn't have anything to make songs about?

Yeah. Like if we were all communists. . . .

Like if we had a government they were satisfied with, they'd have to find something else to do with their lives?

Yeah. I don't like people who complain.

Shut up. How about this? [Now there's another video about a lovelorn fat guy eating ice cream. Later, some fashionable punk rock girls are mean to him.]

Yeah, I like Dairy Queen.

Are you having fat flashbacks? Did fashionable punk rock girls used to be mean to you?

No, actually some girl wanted to have sex with me. I was really surprised.
