This is an essay I wrote for a class called "Consuming History" during my stint in the Public History and Cultural Heritage M.Phil program at Trinity College Dublin. I was extremely surprised to learn that I received honors for this particular piece, despite the somewhat low-brow subject matter. I guess if the writing is bland enough, you can make anything academic! (Just kidding, academics. I love you. I just have a problem with authority.)
Anyways, I hope you enjoy it. It made me giggle a time or two while I was writing it.
