I'm seeing mobile advertising signs. They have feet and hands. Sometimes a head but that's usually covered by a hood. Human billboards. When employing someone becomes so cheap.

When I grow up I want to be an advertisement.

Suppose ideas such as pride will increasingly become old-fashioned and quaint. Can't afford to be prideful. Evil or Very Mad

As I pop out to the food bank.

Common in the USA? Meaning of course, yes, modern capitalism forces people debase themselves in such a way. Its sibling is begging.

BTW, it's also prevalent in 'touristy' areas of Ireland, such as Galway and Dublin.

You don't get it. Those human billboards are proud to be walking around advertising some corporation or fashion brand. They think it makes them look cool, and are happy to pay three times as much for an item of clothing with a brand name on it than the same item of clothing with nothing written on it.

Ah...you meant actual human billboards. I thought you meant twats walking around with "Nike" written in big letters on their sweatshirts.

Ha, too true. Poor fools. This type of clothing should cost less, not more!
