Fudge Land Zero
Inflammatory text by Ed Franklin
Upper vestibule of the sQecial media building
371 South Limestone Street
Greetings. I’d like to present you with an homage to dirty words, phrases, acts, deeds, and thoughts that simultaneously functions as a game of sorts for your amusement or offense, depending. Though there are definitely a few obvious and notable exceptions (which I could not seem to bring myself to omit), the vast majority of the words found here seem somewhat innocuous and mundane when viewed singularly. However, when combined into pairs the words become decidedly sinister, inflammatory, derogatory, and/or lascivious (forming charged ideas, dangerous objects, explicit sexual descriptions, natural disasters, etc.). Also, keep in mind that it is possible to use some words more than once to form new pairs!
Note to viewer: For the most part, the offensive word pairs and the ideas that they represent in no way reflect the artist’s personal beliefs or feelings (much to the contrary), but should be seen as a reflection of how we, as often misguided and sometimes down-right deplorable humans, can take a perfectly good word and wreck it all to hell.
