I found this truly weird little piece of animation from Poland I think, circa 1955 or possibly later, that I think some of you might enjoy. It's an examination of a spartan, austere life, and propagandizes the idea of finding the "joys of the simplest things," which is something I think we can all relate to in these difficult economic times.
Warning: It is very much not safe for work. It's possible you shouldn't even view it at all. Even though it's only about 18 seconds in length, it will haunt you. It has haunted me.
