Remember BURMA SHAVE? Those little advertisement rhymes you'd get on signs along the side of the freeway?

Well, personally, I don't, because I live in Britain and we didn't get BURMA SHAVE here. But I know of them. And, while BURMA SHAVE went bust years ago, their unique form of advertisement lives on.

A little while back, some of the nutters who reside of ifMud thought that it would be really neat if BURMA SHAVE-style adverts were to be used in politics. In particular, used to try and persuade people that, despite all common sense, it would be a really good idea to BOMB IRAQ.

All these are used with permission and are owned by the authors. I didn't write any of them.
