Unclear On The Concept Of The Election Thing

As we go into ELECTORAL FRENZY here in Texas (not that I would tell you who to vote for or anything) I noticed this election poster on another blog:

I’m not sure what’s worse, the fact that the candidate (Gennady Zyuganov, last of the Commies) looks painfully like he’d rather be somewhere else, or the text: translated from Russian, it reads ‘BUY YOUR FOOD FOR THE LAST TIME’. Well, that certainly can’t be taken the wrong way.

Russian posters tend to be unintentionally (maybe intentionally) scary as hell. DAOC team veterans can attest that I had this one above my desk for the longest time:

I’m pretty sure it didn’t really do a very good job of motivating people to run out and join the army.
