1917 US propaganda: Gee!! I wish I were a man, I’d join the Navy.

“A WWI recruiting poster from 1917 by artist Howard Chandler Christy showing a young woman in a Navy uniform: “Gee!! I wish I were a man, I’d join the Navy. Be a man and do it. United States Navy recruiting station.””

Lab equipment manufacturer Analtech hopes to create viral Python spoof ad

“Analtech hopes the video, a spoof of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” will go “viral” and make its way to blogs, Web sites and e-mail inboxes around the world. It’s part of Analtech’s effort to make sure the next generation of lab technicians knows about a technology called thin-layer chromatography — and turns to Analtech, rather than its competitors, for supplies.”

The video will be released in August. Intentionally creating Internet memes is hard, but I wish them luck.
