people ii: still peoplin'

anonymous asked:

listen I haven't heard the term "salad glove" in my entire life but I've been thinking about it and I'm 99% sure it's meme slang for condom. the not-in-front-of-my-salad meme, anyone? yeah. also I'm really sorry for sharing this thought. I know you were all happier without knowing.

Haha! Thanks for this message! I appreciate your analysis, but I can assure you as far as I know, that is not the meaning of salad glove.

So a salad glove is pretty much what it sounds like. It’s a glove for eating salad (although I can see how it might also sound like a glove made out of salad).

It comes from a song by the folk punk band AJJ called “People II 2: Still Peoplin'” off their album Knife Man. There’s a line that goes “You can buy a salad glove.”

People II 2: Still Peoplin’- Andrew Jackson Jihad

“You can hope it gets better, you can follow your dreams
But hope is for presidents and dreams are for people who are sleeping

My friend Erin says, ‘At best, we’re all two or three bad decisions away
from becoming the ones that we fear and pity’
And Tony says 'It’s important to bear some witness when you can’
And that’s not hard to do in the city that I live in

You don’t have it any better, you don’t have it any worse
You’re an irreplaceable human soul with your own understanding of what it means to suffer
And that’s a huge bummer”

A message by AJJ that some people on this hell site should think about.

“You don’t have it any better, you don’t have it any worse
You’re an irreplaceable human soul with your own understanding of what it means to suffer
And that’s a huge bummer”
