Yeah, how dare you, Mrs. Rorschach? How dare you complain?
As post-modern deconstructionists will tell you,there is no such thing as meaning. “Meaning” is an outdated bourgeois illusion.
Meaning is in the eye of the beholder.
And, as Herr Doktor Freud would have said: “ze dirty pikturr iz in your eye.”
And…. while we are on the subject of offensive images, how about that Che t-shirt you bought in Corfu, Mrs. Rorschach?

J.C. Penney billboard with Hitler teapot leaves commuters steamed
Drivers along southern California’s Interstate 405 say the photo of the stainless steel kettle bears remarkable resemblance to the former German dictator.
Trouble is brewing for retailer J.C. Penney after it unveiled a teapot that’s a dead ringer for Nazi leader Adolf Hitler….
Several drivers have posted snaps on Twitter of the 10-by-36-foot ad — which towers over Interstate 405 near Culver City.
One user wrote: “Every time I see that JC Penny billboard with the teapot, I keep seeing Hitler. Seriously, the thing looks exactly like Hitler, 405 S, man.”
Another added: “Uh, no thanks, JC Penny. I don’t think I want your HITLER teapot.”
