I apologize if this is offensive to anyone - it certainly was to me. However, this ad from a 1942 Women's Day magazine is so shocking I simply had to share. I'm not even referring to the Jemima character - I'm talking about the speech bubble near the bottom:
"That's the way to handle those Japs! Just give 'em a quick stir and pop 'em on the griddle!"
WTF? Can you imagine this sort of thing being published today? I'm not even sure what he means - I'm guessing he's not talking about cannibalism. Perhaps "pop 'em on the griddle" means "shoot them in face"? I'm confused.
BTW: I am a bit curious who illustrated this advertisement- the style seems very familiar. Chick Young maybe?
