The epitome of gentrification, New York is a prime example of socioeconomic inequality.

A quote from Lord Of The Flies. Simon, a nearly mute character who is very in touch with nature and at peace with himself, suffers a hallucination at the top of a jungle mountain on an island. He stares at a (real) pig's head impaled on a stick and imagines that he hears it taunting him and daring him to hope for rescue.

Hugger: "No! We're gonna have fun on this island!"
A penalty cake is small, disgusting cake made of very cheap ingredients poorly mixed together and either burnt or underbaked. The cake is prepared prior to an intense game of Monopoly, and every time a player messes up they are required to take a bite of the cake, so that after a while it has collected germs from everybody in the game.
