FAT IS FUEL FOR FIGHTERS, VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY

Fat is Fuel for Fighters, vintage poster image courtesy of NYPubliclibrary archives
Here is an interesting poster image I found online recently.  It comes from WWI, and urged farmers to raise pigs because they help feed soldiers.  

A soldier's daily ration had 1 lb of meat in it and so a sow and her brood of ten would feed 3000 men in one day.  The tag line is that fat is fuel to fighters!  Hmm, I guess since I could easily eat a pound of pork in a day too, does that mean it's fuel to office workers now?  HA!

Hope you are having a good weekend!  More later this evening!

I love these old posters!
Did you notice at the top of the poster that men on horses are charging a tank?!

Maybe I should be a fighter since I could supply my own fuel?
