CNN Style recently posted an article entitled “What North Korea propaganda posters reveal.”
“To the outside world, North Korean propaganda posters are notorious for their militaristic and anti-American messages. But one former Pyongyang resident is hoping that her sizable Korean poster collection can present a more nuanced picture of art in the reclusive state. Stanford fellow Katharina Zellweger — who lived in Pyongyang for five years while working for a Swiss government agency — has collected over 100 examples from inside the country.”
These posters are on exhibit as “Korea’s Public Face: Twentieth-century Propaganda Posters from the Zellweger Collection” at The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) at the University of Hong Kong until Jan. 28, 2018.
Being the kind-hearted soul I am, I thought that it would be amusing to see what nuanced themes Team Trump would construct for propaganda art in the coming year using these same posters.
Hence, Donald Trump North Korea posters become Donorrhea posters.
North Korea: “Spinning tops is fun!”
Donorrhea: “Whipping people is fun!”
North Korea: “Agriculture is the first priority.”
Donorrhea: “Sucking up to me is the first priority.”
North Korea: “Let us provide more electricity to the battlefields where we are breaking new ground!”
Donorrhea: “Let me use my small hands to shut down science and environmental protection before they can break new ground!”
North Korea: “Let us raise more grass-eating animals.”
Donorrhea: “Let us raise more grass-eating loyal followers. (But only white sheep.)”
North Korea: “Let us further encourage our nation’s excellent sports activities and folk games!”
Donorrhea: “Always grab them by the ass or the p***y!”
North Korea: “Let us achieve the party’s agriculture revolution policy thoroughly and brighten the year with increased grain production.”
Donorrhea: “Let us brighten the year by stomping out fake news with fire and fury!”
As the old Chinese proverb states: “May you live in interesting times.”
Cue the theme from The Twilight Zone.
