I am dying.

Time is standing still on this fine Friday.

I can't seem to keep my eyes open. I have ADD or something. Maybe I'm just really bored. I have tons of work to do, but I just can't concentrate!


So as I was browsing the internet for photos of clock watchers, i found this old WWII poster. I'm still a little unsure of what they are trying to imply here.

So does this poster say to you - clock watchers are the same as the Japanese? Japanese are lazy? Are we even talking about the Japanese? Possibly Korea or something?
So logically:
If you are a clock watcher, you are lazy
If you are lazy, you are just like the Japanese whom we are fighting
Therefore - if you are a clockwatcher, you are my enemy.
And you're Asian.

I just don't know if that's what i'm supposed to believe.

But what a crazy poster to have. I wonder if it used to hang in factories or something.

It only takes a second to shoot down a Japanese bomber, so watch the sky not the clock. Those were the good ol' days.

I would lose it if I saw this poster hanging in my office.

Actually, I would kind of like to find one on Ebay and hang it in my cube just to see who would complain first and how quickly I would get called in HR>

On a different note, I am so impressed that you know the quote from History of the World. Impressive.

` History of the World? Are you talking about the book or the Mel Brooks movie?

` By the way, I'm back from internet-oblivion.

I meant the Mel Brooks film as I haven't read the book, which might say something about me but I refuse to dwell on it.

Hey 2 Dollar-
just read your profile and couldn't believe someone besides me loved the movie 'stealing home'. I saw it recently and it kind of didn't stand the test of time...but kudos to you!

Back in the early 1940's, the American people weren't sure that America could beat Japan in the war.

That poster is saying that the more time you waste not contributing to the war effort, the easier it was going to be for Hirohito to take over.
