SOME THINGS DESERVE TO BE POOPED ON: Every week or so I try using cloth diapers on my daughter, but within a day the extra laundry so overwhelms me that I go back to disposables. I buy the cheapest ones I can find, which usually means the Sam's Club generic brand, but they don't make any in the small-size needed for newborns. So for now I'm buying White Cloud diapers at Wal-Mart. Now, anyone not in the baby biz won't know this, but John Lennon's estate has licensed some doodles he made -- giraffes and such -- so that they appear on all sorts of baby products now, including White Cloud diapers. And one day, while changing the nth diaper for the hour, I noticed that these diapers don't just display Lennon's art, they display his "philosophy," you know, deep ideas like, "Imagine living in a world of peace" and other pablum from "Imagine." And at that moment an epiphany struck: "Imagine" is being used to market disposable poop-holders; John Lennon is selling throw-away feces-receptacles! He's finally lived down to his potential! Diaper changes haven't been the same since.
