I think the RCMP selling their rights to Disney beats this all to heck. During Desert Storm we were driving through the Northern states and saw all the yellow ribbons everywhere. You can argue that this glorification of the military is sick or wrong, but you can't say that it doesn't have a receptive audience. I wear buttons about recycling Nanoose, so why can't they wear their buttons.

But Arch, they're on sale!

I have to admit, the last time we were in an airport, I bought Fang and me these groovy little pins that have a Canadian flag crossed with the Stuart royal standard (the red lion rampant on a gold background -- I think it's also a Nova Scotia standard).

Yabbut..."Stealth Bombers?"

Don't get me started on the RCMP/Disney cash nexus.

Big deal.

There are giant duelling painted billboards courtesy of Pepsi and Coke...painted onto conspicuous rock faces in the Himalayas.

In the Himalayas? Holy shit. Can't they be sued for defacing public property or something?

They could sandblast, and scop up the particles afterwards.

"It was not done by the franchisees, but
contracted out to painters and [the franchisees] deducted the money from the
painters remuneration when they found out it
had been done because it is not our policy,"
he said.

So who had the big fat idea to go sell it on the mountain? The painters or the franchisees or some schmuck from head office? Looks a little like pass the buck doesn't it? Or is this the work of one painting outfit who took on both contracts?

Makes me think about traveling through the Rockies and seeing many spots long the roadway where people have stopped driving long enough to spray bomb their name and something clever like "was here" on the sides of the mountains in splendid day-glo green or black.
