CAN THE KAISER, VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY


Interesting poster image today.  This is from just after WWI and it's fascinating how they took the 'bad guy of the war' and connected him with home canning.  "Can Vegetables, Fruit AND the Kaiser too".  The images are interesting, canned tomatoes and peas and then the Kaiser who is 'unsweetened', ha.  

It makes one wonder how this might go over today if directed at a 'common threat'.  "Can Veggies, fruit and Al Qaeda too"?

Hope your weekend is going well!

That's fascinating. I love your thought of canning al qaeda, that would be funny to see that campaign, ha.

Yeah, probably wouldn't convince me to jump on the cause.
