But ultimately, everything is all systems interlaced, a single product manufactured by a single company for a single global market. Spicy, medium, or chunky. They get a choice, of course. Of course! But they are buying salsa.||”|
Mr. World is the leader of the New Gods and is a personification of globalization.
