Humor Science Fiction gross out dystopian consumption dystopia late-stage capitalism cyberpunks

What had originally been written as a comic script back when I was still under the impression that that was a thing I'd be doing, it got trunked for years,then reworked as a short story. It found a home in the final issue of the forever beloved Broadswords and Blasters. Minor content warning for bodily excretions.
