This can't be real, can it?

Seen on the MARC Baltimore-D.C. commuter train:

Report, comrade!

Surely this is the work of some guerilla artist making an ironic political statement. Right?

I do believe history is repeating itself!

We've had to deal with the same Soviet-themed graphics and typefaces in Madison for a few years now. I think it's funny, since I interpret it as the ultimate bitchslapping of Communism. The West has so totally defeated Communism that we're selling it off as kitsch. Now THAT is some serious disemboweling-from-the-inside kind of domination.

Ech. I dunno. There are still some old Commie lions in power to this day, and politicians in this country overjoyed to play kissyface with same.

Communism isn't quite dead enough for me not to be creeped out by stuff like this.
