Embedded text or transcriptLow's Topical Budget Heil Schiklegrube Look out Churchill It is announced that the
Nazis are to build 10 new pocket scuttleships to replace Graf Spee. These will carry improvements
including a plug to pull out before heroic victories. Twice 2 is 12 Twice 12 is 45 Twice 45 is
practically a whole lot etc. etc. Nazi Ministry of Misinformation Multiplication Lesson - class
for reporters of British air-plane losses That schoolgirl complexion Try Nazi Ersatz soap. 60%
pumice & granite chips as advertised. Moscow Special Low suggests that it is now time for
history to repeat itself. Trotsky should be sent to Russia in a sealed car to start a communist
revolution. Free tit-bit for Haw-Haw "British Cavalry, male and female, have brutally invaded
Eire, bringing bloodhounds. They say they have come only for the huntin', but they can't deceive
us Nazis, the loathsome hypocrites." Missing: Low's goat, missing in a forest of waste paper
which Low was foolish enough to save at the request of authorities who are apparently too damned
tired to collect it. Fireside reflections What does the railway director sitting toasting his
toes before his fire, care for us railway passengers starving and freezing to death on his trains
..." Infuriated customer. Ah Heaven help our railway passengers as a night like this ... Gad,
sir, Lord Dott is right. We must open hostilities against Russia immediately or there a grave
danger that Hitler may lose the war. Assurance of Victory Blimp Strategy.
