Mournful, religious music
Establishing African village on a clear, sunny day.
Pan to tattered tangle of melting human forms
sprawled outside a dreary shack.
Close up: small black skeletal face,
flies crawling around the mouth, eyes sunken, filmy
like the eyes of a child that has seen too many
bugs in his bowl.
Caption: SEND MONEY NOW!
Summer camp in the American woods.
Loud synthesized music.
Cut to chow hall interior.
Pan to picnic tables filled with fat brats in a frenzy
throwing food at each other!
Need some air.
