From here (http://www.rr-bb.com/showthread.php?threadid=85127&perpage=25&pagenumber=1).
The guy has a bunch of images posted from this (http://homepage.mac.com/leperous/PhotoAlbum1.html) site.
my favorite, considering I never bothered going down the entire page, yet:

I dunno they fell kinda flat for me. Halfway funny, if that, and not because I'm American. I share a few of those criticisms. The statements and "messages" are nothing new, I think that's why. It's like telling a joke that everyone has already heard. Yeah our pilots do speed and smoke crack and our government is choking the constitution...same ol' same ol' -yawn-.
Cool artwork though, but put to mediocre use. Welcome to the boards :) Have I been here long enough to say that? ;)

Its funny to some. I call it "validation" humour. Its only funny to those for whom it validates their views. Your timeless satire can usually be appreciated by most.
If you want to find it funny even though it doesn't validate your viewpoint, pretend its satire of the viewpoint that finds it funny. "this is kind of lame thing someone who believes this horse puckey would make" All of a sudden, now its funny to you.

Paranoids have all the facts.

I did like the top one, though, just because it reminds me of Farenheit 451, one of my favorite books.

Why are their bullets coming out of the p-38's engine nacelles? Why are we still using p-38's?
Say you love jeebus! Say you love the sky daddy!
