i'm curious as to what the A/N community thinks about this form of advertising. 

personally, i like it.  no doubt, they tend to incite controversy, and many people misunderstand the intent and message.  still, even bad publicity is better than none at all.  take this for example:

http://www.ydr.com/state/ci_20117738/atheist-protests-year-bible-bi...

in Harrisburg, PA this billboard went up just the other day to the utter outrage of local, African Americans in the community.  it quotes the Bible (with the source underneath), saying "Slaves, Obey your Master."  of course, the angry mob directs their ire in the wrong direction, totally missing that it is their Holy Book whose message is being repeated.  naturally, the billboard was vandalized and partially torn down on it's first night. 

similar controversies have arisen in Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, and most recently New York City.  the timing is ideal, as the upswing in Atheist converts is breathtaking.  strike while the iron is hot, as they say.  question is, are the billboards actually garnering converts or just stirring up hatred towards Atheists?  if it is the latter, should we still be in favor of this tactic? 

what say you?

You mean a bad Yolk!  Next thing people will be Tweeting about this...

"You mean a bad Yolk! "


Well, I didn't expect...

No, yoke, …or it wouldn't have been a pun, …technically. Plus, the shadow puppets, the bunny and the ox. That's no bull!

At least I didn't post owls.

Now, let's get serious! How'd you find that? the laughing .gif? I looked and looked and found those funny owls, but would like one of those little fellas. 

Right click -> "save image as" -> keep all your favorites in a folder to upload from.

I have tons, some on drives some online.

I'm one of those cats who's always ready for chickens

Sometimes I make my own as well...

When in doubt?

…or bouncing tits.

This thread has gone to the birds….

Yes, this thread has gone to the birds, and I still can't get them moving. 

I'll just sit back and enjoy your puns. Thanks for the fun and the instruction. 

Ha! …Joan, I will make a graphics tutorial for you, I promise. What operating system do you use, Mac or Windoze?

This forum is going to think we're (probably just me)  just a li'l too irreverent...
