“Remember Pearl Habor, Purl Harder”… This poster (click image above to view) urges women to knit for victory! One of the more bizarre war time propaganda posters. How effective it was is unknown. I seem to remember is was a big bomb that knocked Japan out of the war and not a nice pair of mittens. Still, it’s pun-tastic propaganda.
