East German Rally, 1950

"Rally posters contrast U.S. girl wrestlers with pure and healthful communistic sports."

I wonder how many people at this rally were thinking that the U.S. girl wrestling looks a lot more fun.

I've seen The Wall in all it's horrid, ugliness and I'm a firm believer that the E. Germans knew, full well, what was on the other side.

Of course those wrestling American girls were more fun to watch. Don't forget the "female" track and field contestants that the German Democratic Republic (don't you just love how the most oppressive nations call themselves "Democratic"?) placed in the Olympics for a number of years. Some of those women you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley.

Check out page three of the publication. The couple appear to have been speared by spoons, with one in a touch area.

Those seem to be some angry commies! Not a smile to be seen.

Talked to Patty .. Said she could take them all .. BD clicks on his Photoshop program to place her in .. 😜

P.S. I made sure the picture link was mostly PG-13 like you might see on late night network US television but was still NSFW
