The death instinct



the therapist said...

Oh go on, Prozac, humour me. You see, I always understood Freud to have posited two instincts, the sexual and the death instinct. Or am I wrong? Was it always the death instinct as solution to the boredom of racing toy cars? Because, of course, the sex instinct contains every bit of death we'll ever need and so, again, I can do little but suggest an appropriate, yet onward referral to the clinic of sexual therapy I intend to open in my dotage.

sex toy?

Never knew they were sex toys or death. Love those little robot cars, they make cats crazy.

I understand that Socrates took up playing the lyre in his dotage.

I wonder if he wanted to SMASH it.

If the little pill in the cartoon wanted death, wouldn't it smash itself into the tree? Instead it wants the truck to be something else...but of course what it REALLY wants is to BE something else. Dumbass pill, look carefully at who is holding the controls.

Freud is boring.

Sex toys are boring.

Lyre-playing is boring.

Literalists are boring.

Cats are especially boring.

This is a picture about boredom and how the only way to resolve it is through destruction.

CliffsNotes for Prozacvilles at a WalMart near you...soon.
