This Week’s Cartoon: “Consumer Nudism”

I decided to take a week off from the Republican primaries and other assorted nonsense in order to address the pressing matter of “five-fingered” footwear. The other naked-themed items leapt out at me around the same time. I don’t have a problem with minimalist shoes or other back-to-basics products, but I do find them curious cultural artifacts. Simplicity has major authenticity in this cluttered world. (Somewhat-related strip here.)

While researching this strip, I learned that Naked juices are owned by PepsiCo and Odwalla by Coca-Cola. It’s like a high-end fruit drink proxy war!
