Swap UPC symbols!
Why didn't I think of that! It's genius! It's so obvious once you look
at it! It's so fucking elegant!

We should start a UPC site for art supplies and stuff! Walgreen's sells
CDRs and Minidiscs! And what if you want a magazine but hate the
publisher! Or you like Coors Beer but hate their politics! Shopping to
save the planet!

The savings! The savings!

UPC as Universally Personalized Consumption!

It's the most exciting idea I've heard in a long time!
Thank you for showing it to me!

(And thank you for blessing Droplift with the mantle of Controversy - it's
so much more than it (my track, anyhow) deserves!)
