The Widening Gap Between the Rich and Super-Rich

This is kinda funny. And very well done. And “brought to you by the new 2008 all Jeep Liberty.” Notice that “all,” which should be before “new,” is in the wrong place. I don’t think that’s a subtle Onion funny, but a mistake. I know… “Scott, you’re a dork… and need to find better things to do with your time.” A few good lines from the video…

“The average investment banker is only able to afford one boat, but the super rich family will have upwards of 5, 6, 7 boats. You have to have a decent yacht.” Truer words have ne’er been spoken.

“You didn’t have a grotto?… You’d never know it.”

“I, for one, am proud of you.” For some reason I find this news anchor’s line quite funny.

“Heredity or environment?” That news guy’s interjections are hilarious. He sounds so official.

“Do you think it’s the oppressive nature of being behind gated walls?”

It’s interesting, of course, how these are the same arguments used for the low income and welfare demographic. It’s just a matter of scale.

  1. Yes, it is supposed to say the “New all Jeep Liberty”, as if to imply that the New Liberty is All Jeep, not just some dinky little SUV not worthy of the Jeep moniker. It’s what they call a play on words.

  2. Nice. I’m sure you’re right. Didn’t even occur to me. And you’re what they call… a dork. (I mean that in the kindest way. Disclosure: Dave is my brother. And he is nonetheless a dork, but his last name is Wakefield, so… whaddya gonna do?!)
