File under comics

Via boingboing's continuing coverage of SARS folkart, "this is a collection of famous propaganda posters from the Mao days, but with the dialogue changed to reflect the fight against SARS. Read from left to right, top to bottom."

1. Comrades! Bad News! SARS is here!
2. [translation unavailable --XJ]
3. What's to fear? I've got a gun!
4. Won't work! The enemy is crafty. Guns won't work! (other guy) Hey, what about grenades?
5. No go! SARS is only afraid of disinfectant!
6. But we've got none!
7. Brothers, Chill! First of all, we must pay attention to hygiene to prevent SARS.
8. Right! Bathe! Wash! (other caption) Hey, where's the soap?
9. And don't forget to wear a mask!
10. Good thinking! I'm off to put up posters to tell everyone to wear a mask!
11. Comrades! The disinfectant is here!
12. Excellent! We've washed so much, we've taken off a layer of skin!
13. Spray! Spray it all!
14. Victory!"
