Oriental Pearl in late capitalism: warning
"Just be advised, boys ... You'll want to watch your step, 'cause what I am is, is like a small-diameter pearl of the Orient rolling around the floor of late capitalism — lowlifes of all income levels may step on me now and then but if they do it'll be them who slip and fall and on a good day break their ass, while the ol' pearl herself just goes a-rollin' on."
From Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon
