Stupid Billboards
« on: July 19, 2008, 11:31:52 pm »
Have you guys seen the new billboard for UMC. The poster has some hospital item on it, but what struck me was the slogan: Can you hear the silence?

Why is the hospital silent. Is everyone there dead?

I haven't seen it, but I'm going to assume that it's an anti-abortion ad.

Its a hospital for those in persistent vegetative states.

Have you no respect for the sanctity of life?

Perhaps if you could explain what UMC is, that might be more helpful.

UMC=University Medical Center in Tucson. Am I understanding that not everyone here is in Tucson?

No, most of us are from Scotland.

Most of the rest of the remainder are in New England.

A good chunk of those left over are in Florida.

Sizeable amounts of the others are in California.

A handful of spags live in Canada.

One or two vengeful asshats are from the northern midwest.

And then there's you.

We've also got the Dutch spag.

And the Norwegian one who used to post really awesome writing in Or Kill Me but has seemed to have stopped doing so.

You probably should have explained that in the first place.  I assumed that you meant the United Methodist Church.

I would wonder if these were cases of intentional irony on the part of the advertisers...but then I remember they are advertisers and I can relax once again.
