The King and God

Even though it may seem as though Pete thinks he's too good to consume fast food, there is no denying that Pete has more than a passing resemblance to the Burger King--Pete added a crown of thorns to a Burger King crown and was the Burger King of Jews for Halloween recently. Pete also loves Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back," especially while karaoke-ing-- REM's "End of the World as We Know It" is plan B. Pete also loves doing half-splits; though, not the morning after. Pete also collected Chick tracts for a time. Why mention all of these autobiographical tidbits about Pete? Because in the Chick tract "This Was Your Life," a man dies and is forced to watch his life--everything was recorded! Pete has always thought this is the definition of hell. Pete couldn't imagine watching his mistakes be replayed over and over on what he imagines would be a big, clunky 70s TV--God doesn't need to upgrade if you know what Pete's saying. Thus, the reason Pete finds this new Burger King commercial so disturbing. Lenny Bruce might not be afraid, but Pete is worried that Crispin Porter + Bogusky is secretly filming--and mocking--his life.
