What’s All This Then?

“What’s all this then?” That’s a line I frequently used many years ago which I borrowed from Monty Python. It was simply to demonstrate my state of bewilderment.

So why the confusion now?

Bud Light Trash. For the past year I have been creating images of the Anheuser-Bush product that I encounter along the roads, in the back country and in our streams and rivers of North Central New Mexico, more specifically in Taos and Rio Arriba Counties. It’s everywhere. If your eyes are open, you can’t miss it. If you don’t see it, it’s because you’ve conditioned your brain not to acknowledge it, either voluntarily or otherwise.

So why do they litter?

Now I’ve come to the conclusion that all humans who litter, and especially those who litter Bud Light……..ARE IDIOTS. My knee jerk reaction is to label these Neanderthals as “stupid, selfish, thoughtless imbeciles”.

Here’s my top 3 reasons people litter Bud Light (specifically) in our beautiful state of New Mexico.

  1. It’s rebellious and anti-authoritarian to litter.
  2. They are too lazy to dispose of it properly.
  3. They have no sense of pride.

Just saying.
