truth - justice - the american way


i recently journied out to st.louis, missouri, home of the st.louis arch and museum of westward expansion. on my drive back to atlanta i grabbed an opportunity to experience one of the many "largest ________ in america" tourism spots. in metropolis, illinois i stopped to see the one and only "giant superman statue" in honor of the great american hero who was apparently "born" in metropolis, illinois. i found this monument fascinating as it honors a fictional person with a fictional fame fictionally from a factual place. needless to say, it was amazing. below are some sweet polaroids i took depicting the glorious statue:



the second one is my favorite because of the engraving on the bottom:
TRUTH - JUSTICE - THE AMERICAN WAY

that's what i think of when i watch cartoons. american identity.
fuck the democrats. who's running for the superhero party?
