I know that this was supposed to be just a bit of sciencey/geekoid humor or attempt at it, but, really, the design for the cover of The Story of Cactus (1937) is just plain stupid. There's another example of putting children in harm's way for the sake of attracting attention to some sort of sales unit, but this one I think is worse in a category that is made up of things that are just "worse or worst". Just cringingly bad. I guess some people might see it as "funny", like some people will laugh at those captured videos on the television showing kids-doing-the-darndest-things and maybe getting getting hurt (as the audience churtles). Its just stupid.
