The fear factor seems to be a great motivator. Well, at least in the political arena these days, and especially when times are tough. I found this old WWII poster and thought I'd doctor it up a little for the giggles. You know, something to get the ball rolling with the dinner guests.
Though those WWII posters actually made a lot of sense - you know, encouraging people to be more resourceful, not wasteful. Makes sense to me.
