From The American Institute of Overthinking:

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

from the american institute for overthinking comes this analysis of candyland: "it is a metaphorical representation of the fundamental ideology of the united states; the past is no constraint on the future, and each individual should strive resolutely for personal advance despite whatever the past may hold. the child born in a log cabin may achieve the presidency, an immigrant boy who grows up in the slums of brooklyn may become a real-estate magnate, an ivy-educated scion of wealth may wind up on a bread line, and a double green will speed you to the fore." also, it makes kids crave candy.

so does hungry, hungry hippos reflect our nation's rising obesity rates or is it our vast consumerism?

hungry, hungry hippos is obviously an allegory for the erratic financial marketplace. duh.
