Amish Rake Fight Weblog:Comments: 4 With support like that, who needs enemas?
posted July 18, 2006 by Mike FisherOn a recent drive from LA to Phoenix, I passed through the Inland Empire’s giant section of car dealerships just off the I-10. Many of these places have those gigantic color LCD billboards that flash messages designed to entice buyers to take a closer look. Most of these LCD billboards run loops of 4 or 5 different displays, meaning that they rotate between messages every 10 seconds or so. One dealership chose to add a “Support Our Troops!” message in between the sales pitches. So the net effect was the following:
“Support Our Troops… Test Drive A 2006 Nissan Xterra!”
Something tells me the irony was lost on those responsible, though I'd like to think that I’m not the only driver who noticed the juxtaposition.
