my kid tried to fight another kid, and I explained to him that
the other kid just seems like a dick because he has autism

I know that's less fair in the middle of the night
but get over it
they're just words.

Well, I'm sorry
I announced it in the beginning
If we would have discussed it earlier we could have changed it
But it is what it is now

You said I sucked at running a tourney.
You mocked me.
And said I was a fruit cake for wearing velour
(it was just a thin sweatshirt).

Poopycock, my good lad! The soundness of the structures in question notwithstanding, the question is blatantly metaphorical. There is an existential undercurrent that runs through it, and is meant to clash with the emphasis on common, or everyday, imagery. By jumping from house to potato, quite unexpectedly, we are provided with both a new perspective and something of a system shock. We are forced to revisit our entire understanding of potato as we know it.

What does it mean to be potato? Does potato automatically equate to value? Mayonnaise seems to have value, I would think. But here it is rejected by an undefinable force known only to the author. It is not, for whatever reason, potato. And what of the reduced moral judgment of the potato's inhabitant life form. Is the life form really us? If so, what can we read from its fallible and ambiguously delicate state? Perhaps we are all, ultimately, mayonnaise. And if so, are we all destined for rejection?

Or perhaps the potato important because its common. After all, the malt shop was common not so long ago. Now, it is an obscurity...a thing which exists only in minds and tongue-in-cheek mock-ups. Is there no malt shop? Look around you! It's gone! And should we not take a moment to lament the loss of what once was common? The author's decision to avoid this question is an interesting choice. It contains no inherent emotion. One could read indifference into it, I suppose. But one could just as easily see frustration, or even joy. The emotion we bring to the phrase is, perhaps, our very own.

In a way, IS THERE NO MALT SHOP represents the most important question any of us will ever ask.
