Life is a factory, manufacturing one crisis after another.
It rips you out of your Ice Cream Shorts, dresses you in $50 T-shirts, and puts you to work to earn them at a dead-end job doing one Repetitive Motion after another.
And what do you do with the money left over?
You end up at Mall Bars trying to connect with people by making Weird Eye Statements, and leaving weak tips like a Status Quo Guy.
And should you ever truly try to Sing Your Voice, you'll only end up ruining the party.
