Another Think Coming . . .

Another Issue to Point Out Outright, Alright?

From the folks who brought us the "I·SEOUL·U" city slogan comes this poster of Seoul utilized to attract tourists by emphasizing the city's charm, elegance, and sophistication through misspelling the last day of the week as "Saterday" (as previously noted), but even more noteworthy are those who put this celebration together, namely, those folks on the Organizing Committee of the SEOUL CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL 2017, the ones who indeed flinched not before the task of ensuring that we tourists be "subjected" to whatever that same committee has come up with as its concept of entertainment!

I showed my students this poster and got a good belly laugh out of them.

Ah, but I'd rather be subjected than objectified.

(I've never down well with alienation.)

Or you could be the subject-object of history.
