Burma Shave was a brand of shaving cream best known for their distinctive roadside advertising. The advertising would consist of six red and white signs. The first five would be a short, humorous poem, and the last would be the name of the product, 'Burma Shave'.

The signs fell out of use in the 1950s, which means those who get the joke are generally not the kind of people who read webcomics. Thus, I have created art that appeals to nobody. Yay!

And with that explanation, the joke goes from, perplexing and random, to quite amusing.

I'm from the wrong continent and era to have seen the Burma Shave ads, but I still somehow know enough about them to laugh out loud at the punchline. :)
