For years, Philebrity has been covering the "celebrity boxing" fights promoted by local fight promoter Damon Feldman as a kind of window into the unexamined life. But if you can put together the word salad above, you'll see that for his next magic trick, Feldman will actually put Uber drivers and cab drivers (and Lyft drivers, but really, who cares) into the ring, to duke it out, once and for all. (Or perhaps just once more on that particular day, notable mostly because it's scheduled in advance and in an actual boxing ring and not just on the street.) 

To us, this represents a kind of semiotic shift in Feldman's own already quite particular hustle. Where once, Octomom battled stripper in a kind of schadenfreakshow, today, warring factions of capitalism itself will step into the ring. This feels new, doesn't it? This feels like a kind of truly inspired situationist commentary. This feels like it's trying to tell us something.
