It’s official, folks. Capitalism has finally gone insane. It’s been to the far edges of the universe of consumer preference; it has gazed off the edge of the world of unique selling points; and in doing so, it has lost its mind. Castleton thinks he can make your brain bleed with some ridiculous right wing memes. That’s weak sauce. Prepare to dive into a well of eldritch hipster horror such that you have never seen. Welcome to the Reddit community called We Want Plates, which is exactly what it sounds like.
