Great Society: Fake-Hokum-Parity

 

 

Title:
Great Society: Fake-Hokum-Parity
Abstract:
The image pictured above is from a set of anti-Great Society bumper stickers produced by an unknown artist. Each of them featured the term “Great Society” written in the same chaotic combination of broken letters and body parts, followed by a different punch line. In addition to the pictured item’s play on words involving the Christian ideals of “faith, hope, and charity,” other bumper stickers read “Great Society: Serf Yourself,” “Great Society: Abominable Snow-Job,” and “Great Society: A New Leech on Life.”
