Let me know if you have a brief text for any interpretive translation. As my schedule allows, I can attempt to offer some help.

Take it easy with the Splenda!

You are welcome.

Most every nation, language, philosophy, and culture has an abecedarium like your example. By using tracts or pamphlets like your example from early education onward, students are taught the alphabet and receive a philosophical indoctrination at the same time.

It's one I keep coming back to...

Karl Lagerfel... I mean... David Carradine as "Frankenstein" in Death Race 2000.

It's from a great film directed by Jean-Pierre Melville. The definition of cool.

So, slightly more than five months after you requested an interpretive translation of your avatar, here's a response for you! An Imperialist like myself doesn't have the extra time that the Proletariat enjoys for activities such as regular Style Forum participation. Your avatar-specific poster panel is Russian in origin and likely dates from the period between 1917 and 1930. The snake is clearly labeled as Imperialism. The text and image are an exhortation to kill imperialism because it is antithetical to communism. The Russian worker-communists (the Proletariat) are fighting the Snake of Imperialism and the text reads: "The snake won't stop until everything is ablaze/destroyed; let's bayonet the scoundrel." The Snake of Imperialism is defending its master, the Imperialist Captains of commerce and industry that own said commerce and industry (as symbolized by the smoke-belching factory guarded by the snake). As you probably know, philosophical communism essentially eliminates such ownership and supposedly creates equality. Historically, practical communism in Russia creates other verifiable results. ____________

Yes, it is as noted previously in post #321 above an abecedarium.

Southern All Stars: Dirty Old Man Album cover I just thought it was funny. I was sick of hearing the song every 5minutes in August but seeing guys dressed up like the guy on the cover chasing people around the streets of Tokyo made it all worth while.
