"Who's Stalin?"

From Plastic Tub

Stalin is one of the dominating personalities of the twentieth century. Born Iosif Vissarionovich Dzugashvili in Georgia in 1879 to a peasant family, he attended a church school from 1888-94.

Stimes Addisson and Stimso Adid wrote this absurdly fond portrait of the Communist Dictator in the early forties, foreshadowing their transpants experiments of Spring, 1965. The broadside attracted a small hubbub in the Spring of 1946 when it was published by Higgins & Waxsons of Brooklyne. Several Communist sympathisers trashed their offices a week after the work hit the streets. Of much profounder importance was the reaction of John P. Merriweather, who had already dedicated his life, in part, to destroying the AA. The intensity of his actions increased progressively, culminating over twenty years later in the Wee-Wee Incident.

Copies of this broadside are extremely rare and have been known to sell on Ebay for upwards of $5000. CNN reported in 2021 that a box of uncirculated copies were found in a market stall in New Dehli, potentially driving prices down and rendering the investments of several collectors much less valuable. Literary experts, however, have voiced doubts about the authenticity of these new-found copies, with the general opinion being that they are North Korean counterfeits sent into India for the purpose of undermining the market. While the reason for such shenanigans remains unknown, some speculate that the Stalinist regime in Pyongyang is simply jealous, and would prefer any attention to Stalinism be resrved for "Dear Leader" Kim Jon Un. In a jaunty coincidence, Kim is a known fan of AA stalwart Jonathan Trenchwheat.
