From Face-Assembling Oppressors to Contentious Baby Apparel

These dictator-inspired innovations may not always be in the best of taste, but they are sure to draw in their fair share of attention. Considering the subjects of these political creations, it seems that anything that bears their image could be potentially offensive. While some of these steel-fisted leaders appear in a humorous context, other renderings and products may make you a touch squeamish.

Parody is an important aspect of political demonstration. The fear of being politically incorrect can stilt freedom of speech, but even the most courageous and outrageous of artists must tread lightly while dealing with subjects like Mao, Stalin and Hitler. But even with this added trepidation, politically charged artists, advertisers and designers have created poignant, hilarious and hopeful creations in spite of their controversial references. How do you kill fear? You laugh in its face.

Through parody and clever modern/historic comparisons, these dictator-inspired innovations fly in the face of everything their subjects stood for.
