As the World's Great Depression drew to a close in 1940 . . .
5 July 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . Warner Bros. instructs the Planet's Fat Cat One Per Center Billionaire Class that their only Hope for Salvation is to move into decrepit hovels such as the windmill depicted here during BUSY BAKERS and divvy up their ill-gotten Wealth among Society's dregs such as Mr. Svenson, from whom they filched it in the first place. Strenuous hot dirty sweaty hard physical labor MUST be part of this Oligarchical Element's Atonement & Expiation Process if they're to successfully Exorcise Satan's Stranglehold on their Immortal Souls, BUSY BAKERS illustrates. Becoming fully weaned from the hankering after Filthy Lucre makes Sisyphus' Rolling Stone Chore look like a moss-gathering lark in the park by way of comparison, BUSY BAKERS shows. The Impudent Silver-Spooning Spawn of the Idle Class requires a Rude Awakening via the School of Hard Knocks (NEVER to be confused with Trump University), BUSY BAKERS dictates. Dough looted from the lowly must be kneaded one hundred-fold, then bestowed back upon the Needy, according to BUSY BAKERS. Only in This Life can the Rich benefit from the Existence of the Deserving Poor, warns Warner Bros. They will find no such luxuries in the Fiery Pits of the Next!
