A real kick in the pants, Good Luck with your Multiple Personalities was written for the troops in the Vietnam War who were subjected to experimental LSD dustings by the CIA. Thinking it might transform the grunt-like infantry soldiers into robotic, extra-sensory killing machines, the US government isolated specific troops and exposed them to airborne LSD particles. The psychotropic dust was dropped from a low flying helicopter onto oblivious soldiers who thought the orange hue of the resulting fog was from drifting napalm clouds. Ingestion of this mysterious colorful air intoxicated the boys within a half hour, causing them to stare blankly at all the pretty explosions happening around them. Vietnamese bullets took the form of glorious miniature comets perforating the twilight air; mortar explosions became slimy flower blossoms that drooled twenty foot drops of hot red nectar onto people in barbecued cream puff costumes; and of course the butter stick trees seemed right to bite. Meanwhile, back in America, the youth were also experimenting with LSD and soon discovered that flowers are pretty, wars cause death, and making love feels good (especially if you really like the person).
