Maintain an effortless cool this summer

The headline reads "Maintain an effortless cool this summer." Under the caption is Yours Truly - The Erd-man peddling tee shirts by my cool, debonair manner. (eisenbrauns.com)



Apparently I have succumbed to selling myself for the sake of advertising hype and Capitalistic consumption: Trading my "cool" look for corporate profits. Friends, I am now a part of the marketing machine, which I have railed against on this very blog! Have I become merely another Abercrombie and Fitch representative? Selling my sensuality for corporate profit?!!?

Cool is a matter of perception anyway.

Update:

Andy (see above) has changed the heading from "Maintain an Effortless Cool" (of which I approve) to "Be the Coolest Kid in School." Hhhhmmmm....the jury is still out on that one...
