In Der Fuehrer's Face?

This billboard can be found in Orlando, and reportedly also in Jacksonville. On the bottom of the sign is a legend that says it was paid for by Clear Channel Outdoor (CCO) an outdoor advertising firm with half a million billboards, posters, displays on buses and taxis and such worldwide. CCO is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, one of the world's largest media companies. A CCO spokesman said the company does not do political advertising. The billboard was first reported by the liberal forum Democratic Underground. This is too reminiscent of what has often been seen in totalitarian personality cults, such as Nazi Germany, Stalin's Russia, and Hussein's Iraq. Time for a little Spike Jones?

Man, if that billboard doesn't deserve a Spike Jones-type tune, I don't know what does.
