|Derrida would love some Jell-O|
Jacques Derrida says that there is nothing outside the text. So that must apply to ads, too, right? I see some text right over there. So there is nothing but gelatin salad. Gelatin salad is a whole world unto itself. And it is the perfect dessert for pineapple lovers and philosophers alike. In case you happen to have some of each over for a riveting dinner party.
Anyway, I have never claimed to be able to cajole texts into reading themselves, or into doing anything else (too bad they can't write a few posts for me). Nor was I ever able to deconstruct anything more significant than a stale non-Sunnyside Jell-O cube, which bounces if you put it in a glass of Sprite.*
But now I can offer the critically adept a delicious meta-dessert: the Sunnyside Salad, which almost makes itself. Almost? Not good enough. It needs to take a few more seminars, I guess.
*I don't think you can do this with Sunnyside Salad, though.
