It's just so ridiculous and over the top. AMERICA HAS PLENTY OF FOOD FOR EVERYONE. We are so rich, we can pay farmers NOT to grow fod, by god!

DTG,
I love your caption. May is not the only funny one in the family.

Are they trying to coax motherfuckers into coming to America here or something?

No, the poster was part of a campaign to get people to not worry when the government started paying farmers not to plant certain amounts of land.
