All power to the virgin proletariat!

Posted by Lissa on February 26, 2009

I pass this ad in South Station every morning:

Even aside from the distasteful Marxist-revolutionary imagery, whose brilliant idea was it to juxtapose “virgin” with fists?

And as for the “ALL AIRLINES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL” line — well, if it’s meant to invoke Animal Farm, shouldn’t the designer be aware that Orwell wrote the book as a condemnation of Marxism-Leninism?

Or am I reading too much into this?

Four legs good, two legs bad!  BAA!!!

    They have similar ads at Park Street now too. I pretty much refuse to buy from companies that use leftist revolution as a sales pitch, even though I might normally make an exception for a company using fists and the name Virgin.

    Nobody is sure where they got it, but the pigs seem to have come up with enough money for another case of whiskey.
