The Happiest Punch on Earth

Volume II of Art Speigelman's incredible Maus (which, if you haven't already, you really owe it to yourself to read) begins with the following quote from a German newspaper:

Mickey Mouse is the most miserable ideal ever revealed...Healthy emotions tell every independent young man and every honorable youth that the dirty and filth-covered vermin, the greatest bacteria carrier in the animal kingdom, cannot be the ideal type of animal...Away with Jewish brutalization of the people! Down with Mickey Mouse! Wear the Swastika Cross!
You know what HGP has to say about that?

I like to imagine we are moments away from Chip, Dale, and Pluto hopping out of that tree to finish the job. Click for large image.


Olaf, we are running out of hats to tip to you. Artwork by Steve Simmons, whose site has a lot of other pretty cool artwork that you should check out.

Note: I actually loved this picture so much that I let it skip to the front of our ever-growing queue of anti-Hitler pics. Honestly, talking smack about Mickey? In my hood, you can get a slap for that.
