The Birth of a Poster
- You like it?
- Powerful! Except...
- What? You think your name should be bigger? Or higher?
- No, that's ... No, I'm thinking of the connotation.
- That the nation began when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.
- Oh. Right. Huh.
- Some people might not cotton to that. No pun intended.
- Although ... isn't that the point of the movie?
- No, not at all. The point of the movie is the nation began once Southerners heroically fought back against the Negroes that were ruining us. That's the point.
- Right. So ... you want me to change the image?
- Well, I like it. It's powerful.
- How about if we add a disclaimer?
- What, like, “Don't worry, this isn't the birth of the nation”? Pfft.
- No. Something about how much the South liked Lincoln. How Lincoln was the South's best friend.
- Wow, that's some bullshit. You think we can get away with it?
- We got away with the rest of it, didn't we?
