Embedded text or transcriptWoe desolation ruin calamity yowl mission
The people are miserable because They are only producing so much more than they were before the war
distinguished geniuses have to wear beards because of the shortage of razor- blades.
Kids now getting their fair ration of chocolate for the first time in their lives, don't know whether to suck it or rub it in their hair.
The whole population faints daily at 11 a.m. just in time for a cuppa
Big executives have to wear tissue paper suits and cardboard boots. (Those American cardboard cows have been supplying poor hides lately)
Some people can't eat more than one mouthful of food at a time.
