March Madness 1939

Yes this is a little late but what do you want?  I had to post the pig joke yesterday.  But today I catch up.

Here’s a little pictographic treat for everyone.  A bit of inspiration based on the now complete NCAA basketball hoopla known as March Madness and of course the bizarre day known as 420 that is almost famous as Hitler’s birthday.  Yeah… my mind is a strange place.

So what did the term March Madness mean 70 years ago in the year 1939?  Something quite a bit different than it does now I’d wager.

You have to hand it to the Nazis.  They may have been the scum of the universe but they sure could march.  My apologies to the websites that I snagged these pictures from.
