The Unbearable Awesomeness Of Being

Wak Wak Wakwakwak

People that criticize Disney cartoons for being apologetical of capitalist of whatever are seriously missing the psychological depth of the characters. Take Donald Duck, for example. Donald tries to be a working member of society / a good boyfriend / whatever, but the problem is, he's basically incomprehensible. As his own inability to communicate with the world screws him over more and more, he gives up and resorts to the only action he can perform that is understood to the world at large - flailing, wordless rage. This doesn't impress anyone and only serves to make his situation even worse.

There is a small Donald Duck in all of us. (Which is good because if there was a big one we'd explode.)


  • Greetings from the future! Unfortunately there seems to be much bigger Donalds in people these days. Hopefully that will change for the better in the next few years.
