I read the article anatomy 1 which was on iraq graphic design and how they use parody of things to make serious subjects have a funny twist. I thought the way they used "humor as a weapon" was very interesting. By using common graphics to grab the viewers attention and then changing a few key details can make a real statement. I think that the work in this article is very cleaver. The initail image grabs your attention, but then you need to take a second look and think about what the image is really trying to say.
