PROCLAMATION OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA Kuomintang troops are taken prisoner marking the end of the Chinese Civil War. Weapons are left standing still and the new flag of the People's Republic of China is raised. Mao Zedong shakes hands with people in the crowd and meets with dignitaries. A brief subliminal message shows just a few frames of an atomic bomb mushroom cloud spliced in with the other images.

"FAGS FOR FIGHTING FORCES" WAR PROCLAMATION A proclamation promoting Canada's WWII "Fags For Fighting Forces" war effort which sent "fags" (cigarettes) to Canadian soldiers fighting around the world. Shot begins with the Canadian crest and dissolves onto a parchment paper proclamation (which scrolls upward) announcing the "unsung labors of the Canadian Postal Corps...to direct that flow of Fags for Fighting Forces....so essentially needed for the boys over there." Triumphant fanfare music plays in the background. Obviously there is immense comedic potential for this shot.
