Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

So Atlantis waterslides has put a lot of work into updating their advertising, that god awful billboard, and has been busy putting up posters all over town.  I think they must be under new ownership or something.  I was at the fruit stand and couldn’t help but notice the gigantic “Indian” chief (I suppose) head at the bottom of their drive.  (I use here the term “Indian” ironically, with reference to an archaic and often offensive pattern of thought, whereby it’s okay to appropriate cultures to make a buck but that’s semantics and something else.  For an excellent podcast on the semantics subject, see CBC’s Revision Quest, Episode June 29, 2009, Labels.)

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

a) this is just missing a motion-sensor activated speaker that says “HOW!” to max out on the tacky scale.

b) this needs to be yarn bombed.

c) shouldn’t that be Poseidon’s head?

d) all of the above.

What are your thoughts?

Or, maybe King Neptune’s head sans the trident, cos that would be dangerous and somebody would just vandalize it. A motion sensor activated greeting would definitely peg the tacky-meter tho…
