From SugarShack Pins comes Nelson from The Simpson’s, set in a Phish/Dead environment. Nelson pin pokes fun at that dynamic, as he wears his 13 point bolt and points mocking – “HA HA HA”
What the pin represents…a social commentary:
Nelson represents the Bully mentality.
Senseless, Baseless Bully-ing and mocking.
If Nelson was part of our concert scene, (IMO) he’d be a Deadhead.
So being a Furthur/Deadheadhead he would most likely participate
in the hating that goes on toward Phisheds…
He would most certainly use is most popular mock – HA HA !
but since he’s mocking Phisheds…He’d modify it to the situation
to make it more personal to those listening…HA HA HA !
using the Phish song title to antagonize his victims.
What’s the point ? There is none.
Nelson belives you are not as cool as him, so he mocks you.
But he’s an idiot, and an asshole.
He’s in touch with his inner Bully/moron, and behaves that way.
Much the same thing goes on the the real word.
Deadheads hating on Phisheds for no reason.
We both do the same thing…
Devote all our time and efforts to go see and follow a band we love.
Who cares what someone else is doing. Do your own thing.
But the Nelsons in the Dead community seem to rear their unenlightened heads,
and spout hate.
