questionable marketing

The school where I've been working for the past year is part of a chain of schools. While each branch is operated independently, they all use the same curriculum, the same advertising, etc. The current batch of promotional posters that arrived last week are... interesting. The theme is something along the lines of similar but different - comparing the teaching of English Literature to the teaching of the English Language. The theme is fine, but the graphics? I don't get it.

Similar but different: Hitler ≠ Chaplin

Somebody didn't pay attention in biology class.... one sperm and all those eggs?

Perhaps the stylized Chaplin and Hitler faces needs a third stylized cat face with the same moustache. ;-)
