"that asshole does look like that monkey."

i'm sure many of you have seen the following inane anti-evolution billboard on 316 coming towards athens:


that problem/irony is that it only serves to exentuate the similarities between a man's facial structure and a monkey's. amazingly ineffective.

Mrs. Colonoscopy and I drive by this several times a week on the way to her parents house and have made that same comment several times. If you send in your 'head shot' to get some modeling work and this is the gig you get don't be flattered.

I ain't no monkey.

However, my favorite billboard on 316 is the one going west towards Atlanta that is like some weird love letter to Ronald Reagan. Is that still there?

The monkey looks more intelligent and evolved than the man --- it defeats the entire purpose of the billboard. I also somehow suspect that the man depicted is the same man who bought and paid for the billboard, not some anonymous head model. At least, thinking that makes me happy and brings me some degree of satisfaction.

Jeff F.,

who drives back and forth on 316 at least twice a week, sometimes more

(and I think that Ronald Reagan billboard has been gone for quite some time now --- but it did stay up for at least a year or more after his death. Still up, however, is the billboard chiding Representative Murtha about Marines not cutting and running.)

I always enjoy seeing "Jesus Chevrolet" along 316. You know--the GIGANTIC billboard that just says "JESUS," on one of those super extra tall billboards, right over the car dealership. At least you figure they'll be honest.

And I LOVE the monkey billboard.

My favorite right wing propaganda billboard EVER, though, was on hwy 78 in Alabama someplace--a picture of Sean Hannity with the caption "A Great American."
