Photoshop a propaganda image (http://images.google.com/images?q=propaganda&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search) to make it more humorous.

That reminds me of a serious ad I saw that said "If you love someone with Schizophrenia, you're not alone." Either someone at an ad agency is laughing their arse off at their client or they really didn't sit back and read the thing.

Maybe to the same place my post went. They didn't care to know the truth. They killed my post, and tried to blow away my account. Thanks.

It's too bad that people still think of Schizophrenia as 'multiple personalities' - It's completely different. It's even worse that some people think making fun of a serious illness is the height of comedy.

Maybe someone should come up with an image making fun of cancer patients. Then we can all have a good laugh.

p.s. and just to clarify, Prozac is an anti-depressant. Schizophrenics take anti-psychotics, like risperidone. If you're going to make fun of someone, at least get your drugs straight.

actually you called a member of macrumors an idiot, so your post should have been taken off.

(but yes that drug bit at end of quote is quite funny)

This thread needs less arguing and more photoshops.

My photoshop wasn't ment to be taken seriously but more as a joke.

And so what if my drug used to treat schizophrenia was off. Who would have gotten the joke if I said Clozaril or Risperdal or Zyprexa instead of Prozac.

Again more photoshops, less arguing.
I thank iMeowbot for his submission and hope others will follow suit.

Go do an 'image search" on Google - use the words "Prompaganda Image," or just click the link in the first post.

did we give up when the germans bombed pearl harbor?

Just FYI, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, not the Germans. Yes, I am aware that they were aligned, but that would be like saying the Brits bombed Iraq. So, I suppose that in its current form, your question results in a null answer, but then again...maybe thats what you were going for. ;)

This doesn't match the style of the vintage propaganda posters, but this is a postcard I designed a while back.
