Fear the Vulgar Army

Need a break from oil spill sadness? Check out the excellent blog Vulgar Army. Written by Michelle Farran, its purpose is to “criticise themes in the use of the octopus as a metaphor in propaganda and political cartoons, as well as identify its relation to popular culture.” My current favorite is Of Maps and Octopus – poor octopodes, always so evil.

Thanks, M-C!

  1. O joy! What a needed blog! I have been grinding my teeth over the Goldman-Sachs vampire squid analogy for over a year now.
