Terrible Secret Of Space

Terrible Secret of Space

I realize this work by The Laziest Men On Earth, the same folks that did, “All Your Bases Are Belong To Us”, from a poor translation in the video game Zero Wing is generally considered to be just a work of pop-art, but I think there is a real relevant truth buried in metaphors.

For example, you have “Red” and “Blue” robots, who refer to themselves as “Shover Robots” and “Pusher Robots”, but the “Pusher Robots” shove an the “Shover Robots” pub.

Might the Red and Blue robots be metaphors for the Republican and Democratic parties? Both parties seem determined to protect us from the “Terrible Secret Of Space”, no matter how much pain and suffering they inflict in the process.
