Boxes Within Boxes

Signe Wilkinson, 5/10/11:

Wilkinson is not so fond of the youth of today, with their body piercings and saggy pants and backwards ball-caps.

Eagle-eyed readers will note that she's included that cultural touchstone of youth culture, Clerks, a movie made seventeen years ago. Children conceived in the backseats of cars watching Clerks are now old enough to drive (and park) themselves.

  1. Ah, another case where holding a controller is shorthand for "damn kids," even when there's no reason for it. Aren't they watching a movie?
