What the French Ask of Their Pigs

If this ad is any indication, the French ask entirely too much of their pigs. I don't think actual pigs do this, and who can blame them?

This is not even the most disturbing of the old-timey ads on display here.

I still think the hardest-hitting ad I've seen was an old WW1 poster showing a baby-holding woman sinking in the ocean after their ship had been torpedoed. All it said was "Enlist". It was withdrawn from service after protests in several cities, which is understandable. Imagine the fuss if a recruiting poster had been released in 2002 showing a woman and baby falling from the World Trade Center.

I saw this ad before over at Suicide Food. It is in the "5 noose" category.
