These all provide a very exotic feel of Hawaii and some also argues that the hula dance is like a prostitution of Hawaiian culture.

    Pitts mentions that he cannot “picture [his father] twirling a Hula Hoop at Arlington” stressing how ridiculously illogical and absurd that idea is.

By doing so, Pitts accentuates that playing mobile games on Arlington's soil and or similar places that hold historic value, is no different from doing something as odd as twirling a Hula Hoop there. In addition, he also expands his use of logos by…

    developmental domain represented in this image is the physical development domain. This is evident to me because the image shows children participating in a physical activity.
