urrrgh. I really do like Jack White, but I will definitely NOT be putting any of those up. Using postergasm as a way to advertise for a product defeats the point of hacking your neighborhood to begin with.

I had a similar rage-out moment, but then started laughing at the "Motherfucker" comment. I just though it interesting that Stephen broached the concept to a national audience.

I'm aware of ColbertGASM, but does he actually lurk here or something?

I like it, and there is a certain deliciousness in someone who is essentially a major brand going the route of having his fans act as his advertising media, but it definitely doesn't qualify as a "posterGASM" in my opinion.

I've been trying to pepper my college campus with some PosterGASM, but I am too unclever to invent anything witty or standoutty, so I'd like to, with permission, steal some wit from the masters.

However, when I do the flikr posterGASM link thing, I just get an insane number of images of posters already up in the wild.

So, my 2-part question.

1:  Is everyone okay with me stealing their wit and hanging it randomly all over the University of Wisconsin?  (So far I've just been duct taping the "christopher walken is watching you pee" poster to every stall, even in female restrooms, on campus)

2:  If #1 is okay, where can I find the originals or printable versions of some oddball posterGASM's I can use to make people WTF?

Thanks!

we ABSOLUTELY ARE!

we did not make hundreds of posters so that they could sit in a box in my closet and collect dust

No permission necessary, but granted nonetheless.

Muchos gracias mi amigo!

Volume Dingus is up! (in it's entirety, I have many co-conspirators in my local cabal)

I like the For Rent meme, justifies (at least initially) posting them to the classified boards all over campus.

Working on Volume Aleph next, for the random places.

Who was the originator of "Christopher Walken is Watching You Pee", anyway? I love that one.

Thanks!

I used to have a framed "owls are watching you pee" plaque in my bathroom, but that was because my bathroom was full of owls.

I just realized that I never updated my prior post, in case anyone is interested.

I put up Volume Aleph, Dingus, and Calvinball, all over campus.  By the very next day more then half of the flyers had been taken down =(.  Each day since, I notice even more missing.  The upside is I know people are noticing them, I've heard random conversations about some of them, and I know for sure that every single one was noticed at least by the person(s) taking them down. 

The first ones to come down were, of course, the "Miscarriage is manslaughter" and "Christian Dating" ones, as I put them on the bulletin normally used by the Campus Crusade for Christ, which is the college evangelist nutjob society that are the pushiest and most self-righteous in-your-face group we have.  In fact, we had an event last year with a local senator come to campus, and since one of her things was anti gay marriage, the local LGBT (or is it LBGT?  I dunno, it's the gays) group staged a peaceful protest out front, and tons of other student not even a part of the club joined in to help make the senator feel "welcome".  As I think being against gay marriage is retarded, I too joined in, but the church nutjobs did a thing of their own in support of the senator and had their anti-protest protest stand in front of us being lame.  Anyway I got off topic.

There's still one more volume I haven't done, but since the bulletin boards on campus get cleared at the end of the month, I'm going to wait until the first before I put them up.  Also I'm going to buy a fuckton of googley eyes because those pics I saw are hilarious!

Anyway, thanks for the lulz folks!  Everything I heard from students about your posters was positive!  Except for the Evangelists of course, but insults from them can be taken as a compliment.

I'm afraid not.  I've been meaning to get myself a camera, or borrow someone's cellphone, but haven't gotten around to it.  Most of my free time is spent mucking about in my microbiology lab teaching myself mycology.

That, and I seem to be the only person left in Wisconsin that still does not want a cellphone.
