welcome to the food chain

A couple years ago, the Illinois Bureau of Tourism was giving away posters promoting the kitschy side of Illinois. I got one and tacked it up in my kitchen because it fit my decor: Crap Americana.

Here's my favorite thing about this poster:

Those kids are ass-ugly. The boy in front looks like he's pooping a bowling ball. That woman is sacrificing her baby to a dinosaur. Who gave the artist the green light for this? It's awesome.

The poster was free, postage and everything. Illinois can't help fund public transportation in Chicago, but free posters? No problemo!
