Actually poster no. 11 "I wish I were a man", while obviously sexist, is IMHO not as bad as the others. Very well done image (like a Rockwell), simple message and early 20th century sex appeal. I'm not sure why no. 11 would be ineffective.

The others are either unappealing, confusing or humorous (in a bad way).

Speaking of this one, didn't Hedy Lamarr learn just about everything she knew about designing weapons by overhearing the conversations her husband had with his clients during their business meetings? After she fled Europe to the US and took that knowledge with her, I can understand the Allies being worried that the opposite would happen to them. When you take that into account, the poster doesn't seem that silly.

To the Dear Mother of Ivan Smoliensk,

The Bureau or Railroad Safety and Hog Productions wishes to chastise you for bearing an idiot upon the Motherland. Why, during the times of unrest, when our glorious nation is at war would your send your idiot child to us? We tried with great generosity to find a critical position in which he could serve the Motherland but he was too much of an oaf to do anything.

Frontline soldier: Ivan wasted bullets by firing his rifle in to the backs of the brave soldiers in front of him. When we put him in the front, he shouldered his weapon and killed those who followed.

Sapper: His aim was terrible and his charge few behind him in to a battalion of fellow sappers. Many rubles of explosives were exploded for naught and some soldiers probably died.

Machinegunner. His fingers got caught in the ammunition belt making the weapon ineffective. By this time, the despised Nazis know of Ivan and do not shoot him knowing he is more effective to their side alive.

Madam. if you have any other children, please leave them at home and do not encourage them to fight. We have our hands full with Ivan here. He has but one last chance to redeem himself for the Fatherland. He is working upon the mighty and vital transportation networks that feed our armies. Hopefully, he won't do anything stupid there.

Signed The Commisar

ps: Don't turn around, I'll be in town.

These are pretty epic. It's an odd military strategy to plan to grow a soldier 200 ft tall so they can physically HULK SMASH the enemy capital building. Or, shove an artillery shell through a building in a vaguely sodomizing fashion. I mean, how do you sodomize a building?? Do you instruct a Forward Observer to spot the building's asshole for you?

The military usually just blows things up using normal-sized people operating weapons. If you're winning, that is, but that's never gonna happen.

Similarly unclear on the concept. I sure hope this isn't intended to be instructional, because he seems unclear on which end of the rifle you point towards the enemy.

On a more serious note, it's a little disturbing that the 1940s definition of "loose women" included showing them always keeping one eye invisible and wearing funny hats.

Damn loose Illuminati women!

Canadian Ministry of Propaganda Presents
Garth "Peg Leg" Peters
The Fightingest Fighter of the 148th

Garth Peters was born in Winnepegmalikulu which is in downtown Toronto. As a youth, he wanted to play Hockey. Sadly, as a youth, he was stricken with Peg Legs Disease. Peg Leg Disease, or Pegger-Leggers was a common disease until Doctor Tim Horton developed a cure for it. He incorporated the cure in to his donuts to ensure no more Canadian children could be stricken with Pegger-Legger.

Sadly for Garth, the cure came too late. No matter how many donuts he ate, he could not cure his pegged legs. Because of his infirmity, he could not play hockey. In fact, the children asked him to not watch them play hockey. The sight of his pegged legs disturbed them.

Fortunately for Garth, the bigger countries decided to have another World War and they invited Canada to it, eh? Garth, now a young man, volunteered and found himself with the 148th Battalion. It was the roughest, toughest, largest battalion in the Canadian Army. Both soldiers in the Battalion took their responsibilities seriously. They hitch hiked to Germany and began fighting.

Sadly for them, it was before D-Day and they were alone against the Germans. But fortunately, the Germans were just as repulsed by peg leg disease as the Canadians and they fled before Garth. The 148th chased the entire German Army all over France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and for a very brief time, Britain.

When the Allies arrived on Normandy, they found Garth had bottled them up in the Mere-de-Solaize-Meyount-les-Mayyonnaise region of Guatemala. They were easily defeated and Hitler wept openly for the first time in 20 years.

Garth returned to Canada after the war. No one would let him play hockey though. It's not like they were going to change the rules for one guy, eh? Some say he wandered in to the Yukon Territory to seek his fame and fortune. Others say he committed suicide in his tiny one bedroom outhouse. That would probably explain the body.

Pretty cool list... Cracked is so off and on, with about 65-70% off, but this one was good. I like me some old-school propaganda, I'd collect the posters if I could find them.

They had some fun with this, but some really didn't belong on the list, they were legitimate warnings, and it really needed to be said, the last two were prime examples of this.

Either way, Subby did good on this one. Thanks!

FTA:
How many lives did idly standing between train cars and accidentally having your head squashed claim in the Soviet Union?

Many, many more than you know. Railcars in a hump yard are deadly quiet and every country in the world with a rail system has had fatalities. In the early 20th century, an average of three American railroaders died every day doing there job. An ingredient of the building of America, as Union Pacific would put it, was literally the blood of hundreds of thousands of American workers.
