Deep Cuts: Shopping Songs

And the Lord smiled upon the scene, and he sayeth unto the masses, “I have brought unto you this day the greatest miracle the world hath ever seen. I call it ‘zero percent down and sixty days same as cash.’ Now go unto thine stores and thine phones, thine computers and thine car lots and spend. Spend like a Sodomite trying to buy a place heaven, for I am the Lord thy God, and only the purchase of travel coffee cups and other cheap plastic crap shall appease me.”

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

“Shoplifters of the World Unite,” The Smiths.
