Condom Billboard Offends "… The erection of a condom billboard …”
Ahhhh, sweet, sweet English. Irony? Just a simple LOL? Whatever.
Sadly, this wonderful joke is overshadowed by the zealous attitudes of the trapped-in-the-14th-century complainant and her media-whore friend, the Federal Member for Bowman.
"Let’s not spoil our area for generations to come…" bemoaned Michelle Kenway, who was "dismayed" by the ad. Showing her prowess on the nature of how advertising worked, she stated "if there must be advertising in this position, let it promote our local community and resources".
But of course. That’s exactly what should happen. Just go find the cash and get on with it Michelle. Back to Capitalism 101 for more ole MK methinks.
So, what does our media-whore chip in with? Some astute observation such as “many young people and school-aged children” would see it. SHAME! The promotion of safe sex to future adults?
Showing his complete lack of ability to come up with an original idea, he added “visitors to the Redlands would also drive past the billboard.”
No! People driving past outdoor advertising would actually SEE it?
