When I was a kid, we used to drive the highway to this big fancy grocery store. Once in a while we'd check out the rest of the plaza, which contained an Olan Mills portrait studio. We'd look at the pictures in the window.
Okay, pretend you're ten and put this all together:
You saw a news story about puppy mills.
Your cereal is made by General Mills.
What's an Olan?
Oleo is fake butter that tastes like plastic.
The portraits have some weird sheen on them like fake brush strokes.
You heard that certain religions won't let their pictures be taken.
You saw the movie Soylent Green on TV.
You go to a funeral where an Olan Mills portrait is prominently displayed.
Glad to get this one sorted out! : )
