Ah, Bruce Springsteen. "The Boss." Il Bruce. BRUUUUUUCE. What is your secret? How do you do it? What have you got that I don't? What Faustian deal did you strike? Lastly, what is it that you do there in the back of that gaudily-colored car?
See, I'm something of a musician myself. People sometimes compare my songwriting style to yours, actually. I do these six, seven-minute epic rock ballads of love, loss, striving, disappointment and regret among the downtrodden--you know, slice-of-life stuff. I'm like an observer of the New Jerseyan condition.
But that's where the similarities end between you and me, Brucie. Well, I often sport a bandana-headband. But that's where the similarities end. Because I am not in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I have never been on the cover of ROLLING STONE. I've never won a Grammy. I never played a Super Bowl Halftime show. I don't hobnob with music-biz legends. I never danced with Monica from Friends. I'm not beloved by millions. Or thousands, for that matter. Or even... man, I bet it's not more than six. That's depressing.
So tonight, after a particularly troubled set at Little Alfonse's Fish Shack, during which I and my band were pelted with clamshells for forty-five minutes straight, I have decided that I need your help, Boss.
Seriously, what weird spell did you weave over this world that everyone loves you so? You've got critical acclaim and popular appeal! Nobody gets both! You're beloved by both the eggheads and the meatheads! The smarty-pantses and the oft-pantsless!
I submit to you, Your Bruceness. Teach me your methods. Brucify me. Maybe I wasn't Born to Run, but I can learn! I need to be loved like you're loved. I can't take another shelling like tonight's; I have seafood allergies. Let me listen to your recordings, hours and hours of them, spanning a quarter century. Gimme some outtakes, too, I can learns from that. Let me watch your concert footage. Let me learn at your cowboy-booted feet. Please, Bruce, anoint me with your sweat that I might glisten as you do.
The only thing is, I don't have a lot of money for box sets and stuff, so I'll need to be able to buy your work at a discount. I don't suppose you know anyplace I could get some kind of a deal? Maybe online?

How did you guys vote for this? Did you just misunderstand? Did you think it was the last moments of a dramatic battle between a giant space orange and an heroic man and his dog? Because if that's what a thousand of you thought, we can understand why you voted for this.
But that's not a space orange. That's the Sun, breaking apart. We're not sure how plasma breaks like that but it apparently does. And that means the end of everything. The cute squirrels, the happy birds, the darling little kittens, the whiny fanatics who hate squirrels, birds and kitties, everything. It's all gone, all of it, right after the moment captured on this shirt.
What's wrong with you people? Too much playing video games, if you ask us. Your mother was right.
"It's good enough for this piece of fiction we're in. There was never a Legionary Wootinius, either, if you want to get literal about it."
"Point taken, but still, salt? Not exactly something I'd put on my Saturnalia list."
"Not just any salt, mind you. This is handcrafted, natural Caravel Gourmet Sea Salt in refillable three-position 6" glass grinders. For taste and texture, it's unmatched by any salt from Londinium to Antiocha."
"You're missing my point, which is IT'S STILL JUST SALT."
"But is it? The Caravel Smoked Bacon Sea Salt is made with real bacon and smoked over alder wood. It brings smoky, meaty deliciousness to just about any dish, as a rub or a finishing salt. Tellicherry pepper and natural garlic add dimension and flavor to the Garlic Pepper Sea Salt. And the sultans of far-off Himavani prize the Himalayan Pink Salt for its nutritional and health properties. I'm quite sure you'll find this array of salt uniquely pleasurable and satisfying."
"Hey, know what I find even more pleasurable and satisfying? Money."
"Well, with the economy the way it is, there are only two jobs paying cash right now. But I can probably arrange a transfer-"
"Yes. Sounds good. Do that. What jobs are they, by the way?"
"Gladiator or vomitorium attendant."
"Hmmm...you know, this salt does look really good. Made with real bacon, you said?"
