This was probably the same operating position with a humorous
motivational technique to encourage equality with the "East Coast Iron
Curtin".  The picutre was captioned:  "Tired of getting the droppings
from the East coast?  Let's DO it this time!"

The picture was of an elephant, tail raised, and a guy standing behind
him with a wheelbarrow catching the "droppings".
