Did I Ever Tell You About Ferris Bueller The Coke Dealer?

So the long standing story is that Ferris Bueller was actually his high school's drug dealer. Why? His popularity. He was so fucking popular, the entire school utterly stopped when he didn't show up. He didn't want to be popular, he just was.

His nasally voice. The "Don't give a shit" attitude. And Cameron was his best customer who's parents made him stay home to get of the shit.

Sloane: What are we going to do?
Ferris: The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
Cameron: Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home. Please don't say were not going to take the car home.
Ferris: [to the camera] If you had access to a car like this, would you take it back right away?
Ferris: Neither would I.

Let's not forget Rooney went out of his way to get Ferris busted. Or you could look at it as Principal Rooney was willing to break into Ferris' house to get a fix.

Only a kid on coke could think of dressing up as his girlfriend's dad to pick her up, or call himself the "Sausage King Of Chicago". And for many, it would take the high speed haze of cocaine to grow the cojones to go on the adventure Ferris and his hot little girlfriend Sloane did with Cameron in tow.

Ferris' sister was crazy angry that he gets away with everything and she doesn't really want to snitch him out since he's hooking her up too.

And if we roll with the idea that Ferris and the gang was in a coked up haze, you could bet that he was he one to black out and put all those miles on the Ferrari. Or the valet guy was Ferris' connection and supplier so he let him joyride the whip.

The last scene also demonstrates my other idea that Ferris and Cameron share a Tyler Durden type relationship and that Ferris is a delusion of Cameron's psychosis. Sloane would only be into Cameron if he was the drug dealer too.
